The Mannequin Challenge was all the rage a few years ago but the Chainsmokers have revived it right here in South Africa with the help of our penguins.


Boulders Beach, Cape Town – The Chainsmokers have been in South Africa to perform at the annual Ultra festivals that take place every summer. Now that the festivals are over, the group are taking some down time to explore Cape Town.

They recently visited Boulders Beach, a popular destination for tourists who want to catch a tan and a sighting of a penguin or 50.

While browsing their official Instagram page, we noticed they filmed a Mannequin Challenge on Boulders Beach. What is the Mannequin Challenge you ask?

The Mannequin Challenge was a viral Internet video trend which became popular in November 2016, in which people remain completely frozen in pose like mannequins while a moving camera films them, often with the song “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd playing in the background.

The trio shared a second video on their account that shows they had a little too much fun in the sun. Tourists travel here because we have the best weather ever! But often don’t realise how strong our sun is. They got roasted!

“Look, we know the mannequin challenge is far over but the penguins wanted to do it so”

You can watch their Mannequin Challenge below, even our adorable African penguins got involved and played their part in standing still.
