Sea Lions Just Won the Mannequin Challenge, Everyone Else Should Give Up

They held their poses better than Britney did.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock islet (or don’t have Facebook), you’ve surely seen the Mannequin Challenge, a video meme where a group of people stands frozen in time as a camera pans the scene. Eventually, they all break, and the viewer is like, “WOW, I CAN’T BELIEVE HOW STILL THEY ALL STOOD!”

Okay, to be honest, we’re not really what the point is but we do know that the Mannequin Challenge is about a jillion times better when it stars sea lion rescues, as it does in this video from the Georgia Aquarium.

The sea lions—found stranded, malnourished, and underweight due to the Unusual Mortality Event in California—are now being closely cared for at the largest aquarium in the Western Hemisphere. “We had a great time providing this enrichment session for our sea lions earlier!” the aquarium posted on Facebook. You can learn more about their rescue here, and watch their Mannequin Challenge below.
