While on tour in South Africa for Ultra this past weekend, The Chainsmokers and their team took a bit of a detour south toward the Cape Peninsula to play with penguins at The Boulders. As it turns out, the penguins are super friendly — and in this case, nearly motionless.
During their time with the penguins, Chainsmokers & company decided to take advantage of the stillness of the birds and bring back the Mannequin Challenge, which peacefully died at home in its sleep in 2016. Apart from one or two birds, it’s actually incredible just how still these penguins were.
We certainly don’t expect the challenge to make a full recovery, but The Chainsmokers make a fair argument for — maybe — a once a year revival.
Check out their new challenge below.
