Oh, you took everyone in your school and made them do the mannequin challenge?
Oh, you had six of your friends act like they were fighting in a still framed mannequin challenge?
Well guess what…your challenge sucks compared to this one.
The European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesquet recently tweeted a video of himself and four of his colleagues performing the challenge in zero gravity. That’s right, five astronauts took time on their day off to film a mannequin challenge on the International Space Station.

You can clearly see some of the astronauts hooking a foot or hand to keep themselves motionless but they seriously did a better job in zero gravity than most do just standing still on Earth. Pesquet stated:
“We got the whole crew together and took the #MannequinChallenge to new heights. The result is kind of sci-fi spooky don’t you think?”
The video has gone viral and I am sure there are several groups out there thinking… “Challenge Accepted.”
Here’s a video of the astronauts re-shared to music by a Twitter fan.
