Seniors attempt the Mannequin Challenge in Agawam

Celebrities have taken part in popular challenge

AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – The Mannequin Challenge is the viral video craze that has been sweeping the Internet over the past few weeks, and some local seniors got in on the phenomenon.

The challenge involves freezing in position- like a mannequin would- throughout the period of time that the video is being made. Celebrities ranging from First Lady Michelle Obama to singer Adele and the New York Giants have all made videos.

Residents and staff members at Heritage Woods in Agawam made a Mannequin Challenge video of their own this week; remaining perfectly still while making initial preparations for their annual Thanksgiving dinner.
