Mannequin Challenge During Basketball Game (Video)

The mannequin challenge came to the Korean Basketball League’s All-Star Game on Jan. 22 (video below).

After a player missed a shot, an air horn sounded and players on the Senior All-Stars and Junior All-Stars teams froze, as did coaches and fans, notes The Washington Post.

The challenge happened in the second quarter, and lasted for about 15 seconds. The Senior team went on to win 150-126.

Time ranked the best mannequin challenge videos in November 2016, which included some kids freezing outside their school, in the hallways and in classrooms.

In another top video, hundreds of young people froze at what appeared to be a dance competition called the "Spelman Stroll Off." The dancers -- in costume -- and the audience held it together for an impressive challenge.

The song "Black Beatles" by Rae Sremmurd is often used in challenge videos. In an amazing feat, the hip-hop group somehow got an entire audience to do the challenge with them.

Musician Paul McCartney went viral on Twitter when he posed next to a piano as "Black Beatles" played for the former Beatle.

The NFL's New York Giants did the mannequin challenge in their locker room, and fortunately everyone was at least partially clothed when it was filmed.

NBA Golden State Warriors player Steph Curry and his wife Ayesha were part of a challenge that involved an entire restaurant freezing in place.

In a video that urged people to vote on Election Day, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, singer Jon Bon Jovi and the Clinton staff froze inside an airplane. The video ended with the words: "Don't stand still. Vote today."

An almost three-minute challenge began backstage at "The Late Late Show," and ended up on stage where host James Corden and his studio audience froze.

Beyonce did a simpler challenge, posing with other members of her former band, Destiny's Child. It went viral on Instagram.
