Mannequin Challenge Takes The Internet By Storm

mannequin1

(PCM) Viral internet challenges appear to pop up overnight and such is the case with the latest internet obsession with the #MannequinChallenge! It is a very simple challenge that pretty much requires participants to literally do nothing!  The #MannequinChallenge calls for participants to pose in a dramatic fashion and hold that pose as if they were a mannequin while hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd’s new song “Black Beatles” plays in the background while someone films.  That’s all there is to it!

It has been a slow build for the #MannequinChallenge, as the first appearance of the hashtag was found on Twitter used by a group of high school students back in late October in Jacksonville, Florida. Since then the challenge has picked up steam and now everyone from high school athletes to sports teams such as the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Milwaukee Bucks have all created their own versions of the #MannequinChallenge.

Many were curious if the Rae Sremmurd song had any significance behind the challenge, but it seems it was merely coincidence that the original video was filmed using that song in the background and it seems to have stuck!  The group, which was formed in Mississippi back in 2014 by two brothers  Khalif “Swae Lee” Brown, 21, and Aaquil “Slim Jxmmi” Brown, 22, are just as baffled by the success and the challenge, but are definitely having some fun with the fame. They recently completed their own #MannequinChallenge, much to the delight of the audience at one of the groups recent performances.

What do you think of the #MannequinChallenge?  Have you made a video yet? Looks like there is still plenty of time, as the #MannequinChallenge is continuing to grow in popularity and doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon!

And it has! The video has been viewed over 200,000 times and continues to rack up the hits. When speaking with news outlets about the video’s success Mikayla says that she and her father had talked for years about doing something like and they only practiced it a few times before the wedding.

Everyone Agrees That This Political Ad Is The Best Of Election Season

daugherty-ad

(PCM) For once both Republicans and Democrats can agree that this re-election ad for Republican Gerald Daugherty for the position of Travis County commissioner in Texas is the best they’ve ever seen. It is absolutely hilarious and Daugherty’s wife Charlyn completely steals the show!

Gerald Daugherty is the current commissioner of Travis County and he would very much like to stay in his current position. When viewing the video we also learn that his wife Charlyn also, REALLY, REALLY wants him to keep his position as well! She hilariously shows just what life would consist of by having him stuck around the house all day long.

It is about time that we see someone making light of election season and whoever put together this ad is nothing short of pure genius. We think rather than candidates slinging mud at one another in political ad’s we need to see more candidates taking the higher road approach and adding a bit of humor and raw honesty. Those types of ad’s are certainly way more memorable, so major props to the Gerald Daugherty campaign for a smash hit!

‘Price Is Right’ Three-Way Tie Makes History!

price-is-right

(PCM) History was made on the long running CBS game show “The Price Is Right” when not one, but three, contestants each spun a different combination of $1.00 on show’s infamous and colorful big wheel during the episodes Showcase Showdown.

When a contestant spins a combination of $1.00 between two spins they are immediately rewarded with a $1,000 bonus and a chance to spin again. Host Drew Carey appeared amazed when all three contestants each spun a combination of $1.00 in their two spins, delightfully pumping his fist in the air. There have been other ties in the show’s history, however all ties in the past included a contestants spin landing directly on the $1.00 space. Never before have three contestants all added up to $1.00 during the combination of two spins.

The CBS game show has been on the air for the past 45 years, so this is without a doubt an important milestone. The contestant celebrated their big wins by jumping around the stage and embracing one another in a group hug! Congrats!

Scary Ghost Attacks Caught On Camera

(PCM) The summer is coming to an end. There is a chill in the air and leaves are falling all around. For a lot of people that means that Halloween is just around the corner. And if you’re not a fan of Halloween you can always settle for pumpkin pie. But were not her to talk about pumpkin’s, and a holiday for kid’s to play dress up and get some candy. No were here to talk about ghost’s.

The definition of a ghost is as follows: an apparition of a dead person that is believed to appear or become manifest to the living, typically as a nebulous image. Just the definition is enough to send chills up some people’s spines. Are all ghost’s friendly? After doing some research for this very article I can answer that in one word, NOPE. Yea that’s right not every ghost is like Casper the friendly ghost.

A good ghost story is always fun to read around this time of year. Sometimes a friend or coworker might tell you a story that will have you checking under the covers or flicking on a light when you enter a room. Maybe you have heard footsteps coming from another room that no one is on and thought that someone was watching. It all sounds pretty scary.

A ghost encounter can be a very scary and traumatizing experience. Some people out their might not believe in such hysteria. It is very hard to justify certain peoples experience when hearing about or reading a tale. It is a complete monster when the attack happens on a camera. That’s right here are a few of the top ghost encounters caught on tape. Whether you believe in the supernatural or are just a fan of ghost stories this is for you.
