It's kind of hard to believe that the #MannequinChallenge has only existed for about two weeks. Because it is absolutely EVERYWHERE. There is no better thing to do right now than to film you and your friends not moving for an uncomfortably long period of time. And we're not saying that sarcastically—we're actually obsessed with it. The results are frequently, for some confusing reason, mesmerizing.
When the Rockettes do the #MannequinChallenge, though? There's less confusion as to why that's awesome. First, the Rockettes can do no wrong; second, they're precision dancers, for goodness' sake, which means holding a pose is literally in their job description and they're darn good at it; and third, their take on the meme gives us a fascinating behind-the-scenes peek at Radio City Music Hall.
Major bonus points, by the way, go to the Rockette who chose to freeze herself mid-foam roll:
That is commitment. Ouch.
