We’re all kind of sick of the Mannequin Challenge, right? At this point, it’s kind of gone to the dogs, and we’re better for it.
No one told these guys, though. At least their Mannequin Challenge went out with guns blazing.
In Alabama, this Mannequin Challenge, which features an intense shootout, led to two arrests on gun and drug charges. These guys took the challenge really seriously.
Authorities got wind of the footage and obtained a search warrant, and a SWAT team raided the Huntsville property at 5 a.m. on Tuesday, Madison County Sheriff’s Captain Mike Salomonsky said at a press conference.
They seized two handguns, an assault rifle and a shotgun, as well as several rounds of ammunition and magazines. It’s not clear whether any of these weapons appeared in the video. Authorities also confiscated bags of marijuana and a computer, Salomonsky said.

Can we just lay the Mannequin Challenge to rest, before someone gets hurt, please?
