Every time we think we’ve seen the ultimate Mannequin Challenge, someone proves us wrong! This time it was Jamie Vardy and the England national soccer team. The guys totally froze IN THE MIDDLE OF A GAME! See the epicness for yourself, right here.
We’ve seen celebrities freeze mid-party, bands stop a concert to get their crowds to stand still, and Blac Chyna pause mid-labor in the delivery room, all to complete the epic Mannequin Challenge that’s taking over the internet. However, no one has stopped in the middle of a soccer game just to hop on the viral trend… until now!
Jamie Vardy, 29, and more players on the England national team stopped in their tracks on Nov. 15, after the striker scored an impressive goal, knocking the ball into the net with his freakin’ head. That brought their score to 2-0 in their friendly match against Spain, and the guys were clearly thrilled. To celebrate, he and his teammates froze to complete the Mannequin Challenge right there on the field! It was definitely quick, but sooo awesome!
The other team certainly didn’t get on-board with the unique celebration. Maybe they’re bitter, or maybe they haven’t seen the viral trend yet, but when Jamie and the gang stopped moving, Spain’s players just started at them like they were insane! We guess it must look a little weird if you’re not expecting it. It almost looked like Jamie and the gang had planned to do it, because they all stopped perfectly in-sync. That’s some REAL team work! But does it compare to Blac doing it while giving birth or the epic party with Drake, Diddy and Iggy Azalea that stopped in it’s tracks? You be the judge!
