Borussia Dortmund did the Mannequin Challenge and absolutely crushed it

The Mannequin Challenge is the latest viral craze to hit the Internets. The premise is simple: gather a group, set them up in “frozen” poses, and film it all with one, continuous shot set to the proper background music. It's a simple formula, but leaves plenty of room for creativity.

Borussia Dortmund have gotten in on the virality early, and Andre Schurrle posted this effort to his Instagram:

It's pretty damn good. Schurrle enlists the star power of Marco Reus, Mario Gotze, and a few other teammates in the gym, and they nail it.

It's actually almost creepy how good they are. Every single player looks like a wax figure, and the old school 50 Cent playing in the background just makes it all that much better.

Well played Dortmund. You've set the bar high.
