The Mannequin Challenge is the silly, frozen video challenge that’s sweeping the nation. Participants stand perfectly still in a pose that makes them look like a mannequin, while a camera moves around the room filming. The results can be awesomely eerie. Even the SNL cast and Kristen Wiig rocked the Mannequin Challenge yesterday as Kristen prepped for her gig as SNL host this week. Of course, when Saturday Night Live takes on a challenge, they have to make it adorably goofy. We were falling out of our chairs laughing, much like a couple of the cast members.

Naturally, everyone was hilarious. We particularly liked Aidy Bryant blowing a bubble with her gum, Alex Moffat spilling paint, and, of course, Pete Davidson falling out of his chair. We were also crazy impressed by how everyone reset into different mannequin poses behind Kristen Wiig at the end. But as she so often does, Leslie Jones stole the show.
