We can all give up on the Mannequin Challenge now; the cast of Broadway's Aladdin just won it.
In a video released on Monday (Nov 14, 2016), the cast takes on the latest craze to dominate the internet — and it's far and away one of the best versions of the challenge we've seen.
The video, which went up on the show's Twitter
account, is a true work of art. With the expert camerawork, the inventive poses of the seasoned actors and the close-ups of the cast's beautifully multicolored garb, the end result is pretty magical.
The video ends with a sly wink from James Monroe Iglehart, who plays the Genie in the musical rendition of the beloved Disney classic. Aladdin joined Broadway in 2014 and follows essentially the same storyline as the 1992 animated film, with a few new musical numbers thrown in for good measure.
The Mannequin Challenge is the latest viral sensation taking the internet by storm, and celebrities and musicians around the world have contributed their takes on the stop-action scene play. Music legends like Adele, Britney Spears and Paul McCartney have all given the challenge a shot, much to the delight of fans and followers.
When Broadway gets involved though, it's pretty much game over.
