VIDEO: City of Tampa masters ‘Mannequin Challenge’

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — The “Mannequin Challenge” is social media’s latest craze and the City of Tampa dominates in the video.

The viral challenge has participants hold a pose while staying perfectly still – like a mannequin – to capture their dramatic poses on film.

The poses are supposed to create a group scene, which tells a bigger story. Obviously, the better the pose is, the more interesting the illustration will be. Also, the more people involved, the better.

After the City of Tampa joined the “Mannequin Challenge,” it challenged the City of St. Petersburg and the City of Orlando to try it too.

Stay with WFLA News Channel 8 to see how the cities respond.
