ICYMI, the "mannequin challenge" has gone viral over the past week or so. The trend, which was started by high schoolers in Florida, involves participating groups standing in place, frozen like a bunch of mannequins you'd see in the window of a clothing store. 

The videos caught mainstream attention over the past week as a number of outlets (including Mic) published compilations and explainers. The mannequin challenge is only going to keep spreading from here, and as it does, the poses will become more complex. Without further ado, here are the best mannequin challenge videos you need to see.
