Talk about a trainwreck! Amy Schumer is a little late to the game with her Mannequin Challenge, but it turned out to be such a hot mess that it was well worth the wait. We’ve got her hilarious video, right here.
Just when we thought the Mannequin Challenge had finally burned out, Amy Schumer, 35, has brought it back to life with a wicked new version. Unlike all of the super-professional and highly involved videos that other celebrities have put out, the actress/comedienne did hers via her smartphone, a poorly lit restaurant and a group of cooks who didn’t want to play along with her.
The Trainwreck star was dining with pals at the super exclusive Chicago hotspot Schwa’s when they decided to take on the Mannequin Challenge. Amy welcomes us to her video, which is so hard to see because the restaurant lights their tables with one lightbulb hanging down from the ceiling. From what we can see her boyfriend Ben Hanisch, 29, is standing still while a pal pours a glass of wine for him. She then pans around to other friends attempting to do a high-five even though they’re not exactly holding in place very well. But it is what’s going on behind them that makes her video so epic.
The bustling kitchen staff can be seen hard at work cooking for their patrons through a glass wall behind her pals. Amy then roams into the chef’s area calling out to them,”Remember we said we were going to do the Mannequin Challenge and everybody was going to stop moving? Guys?” Nobody pays attention or even looks at Amy, they’re too busy going about their jobs. They’re either doing a great job of completely ignoring her, or she had the world’s greatest epic fail planned. “Mannequins don’t play by the rules,” Amy says into the camera at the end of the video. While her challenge was a complete disaster, at least her dinner was incredible as she hashtagged her Instagram video with “Best meal ever.”
