Miami Dolphins players, cheerleaders take on Mannequin Challenge


The Nation continues to be swept away by the Mannequin Challenge. After surfacing in college and NFL locker rooms and the set of College Gameday last week, the craze continues into this week.

The Miami Dolphins doubled down on their helping of the viral internet happening; both the Miami Dolphins football roster and cheerleading squad got in on the action:

Told myself I wouldn't do it….guess I LIED lmao😂😂YURP™ #MANNEQUINCHALLENGE 🐬

Which do you think is better? If you said the Miami Dolphins football players, you were wrong. Aside from the fact that a dude is moving immediately when the video starts, another dude walks by the locker room totally unaware of what is going on.

The camera movement also left a lot to be desired.

Meanwhile, the cheerleaders did an awesome job; best I’ve seen so far I think. They are all perfectly still, in interesting and diverse positions; exploring different levels and plains  and exhibiting their physical fitness all at the same time. The camera panned smoothly and sensibly. Nice job!
