Mannequin Challenge at GPS Insight

Just another day at the office.

Enjoy our #MannequinChallenge video – then see how many new things you can pick up on a second viewing.

The Mannequin Challenge is the latest online viral sensation and people all over the world are taking part. The premise is silly and definitely not new, but this online phenomenon has a way of catching on and everyone has a great time jumping on board. It’s easy to get started with your own version, simply gather a group of people together and have them stand still as you slowly film their frozen poses – it looks like they’re all mannequins.

Our culture at GPS Insight is the perfect environment to take part in this fun challenge. 40 of our employees were involved and did an amazing job at holding their poses (for nearly 3 minutes straight!). Everyone’s inner creativity was on display for filming. Some of the more imaginative scenes included stealing breakroom snacks, a turtle and a penguin discussing GPS tracking, superheroes battling in our superhero-themed conference room, and various everyday items floating in mid-air. There is so much going on, you’ll need to watch it multiple times to catch it all!

The Mannequin Challenge video was done in a continuous shot on an iPhone. The background music is the instrumental version of “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd.
