Mannequin Challenge in the Korean Basketball League


Sort of off-topic, but funny

Standing still has never held much attraction to me, so naturally I am not a big fan of the mannequin challenge. But even I have to admit that this display from the Korean Basketball League All-Star Game is pretty amusing (though I wonder if it contributed to the two turnovers that followed immediately).

The North Koreans are quite competitive: maybe they could integrate the mannequin challenge into a mass event, like a military parade marking the anniversary of the Party or something? I would love to see those troops freeze mid-goose step and the rocket transporters stop on a dime.
