Alabama prisoners do the mannequin challenge with contraband phone

MOBILE, Ala. (WGNO) – The mannequin challenge is the latest social media craze – and even prisoners in Alabama are joining in on the fun.

This video – posted on social media and shared thousands of times – shows prisoners frozen for about  a minute. The inmates’ poses include praying, reading, exercising and even fighting.

The mannequin challenge calls for participants to freeze in an action while someone films each person standing still.

As noted by The Huffington Post, the biggest feat for most mannequin challenges is getting a group of people to stay still, but for these Alabama inmates, the larger feat was using a contraband phone to film it.

The hashtags used in the social media post include “#ALLlivesMATTER, #GodLovesAll, #ChaingangChallange.”
