The #mannequin challenge supposedly originated in American by a high school student – Emili.
She tells Inverse through Twitter DM how it all started: “One day I just went to the front of the class and stood there, that’s when my friend A’laynah said, ‘Hey, you look like a mannequin.’ Then my friend Bre’Onna and Jasmine joined and we started doing all these crazy poses.”
