Watch: Finnish hockey team gets the fans involved for a brilliant mannequin challenge

Monday November 14th, 2016

It turns out the mannequin challenge has worldwide appeal. 

Two of the best editions of the viral video craze I’ve seen recently come from Finnish hockey club Jokerit.

At Saturday’s game against Kunlun Red Star, the team had the entire arena get in on the action, with mixed results. It’s tough to blame the players’ heavy breathing, but they at least could have played some music. (Click here if you can’t see the video.)

Watch: Colorado’s mascot managed to stand perfectly still for a mannequin challenge

The version the club put out on Friday was way more impressive, though. (Click here if you can’t see the video.)

If you were wondering, mannequin in Finnish is mannekiini or mallinukke.
