After flipping a bottle for her last social media challenge, Ellen DeGeneres decided to share the latest challenge with her audience and viewers. DeGeneres said that the mannequin challenge is sweeping the nation and explained how it worked.

DeGeneres told her audience and viewers that you would set up a dramatic scene and freeze then video the entire scene with the corresponding hashtag.

She then rolled some footage of the mannequin challenge she and her employees did back stage last week and it was pretty incredible. One thing that stood out the most was the ping pong ball that was frozen in mid-air.

It was an absolute winner and is up there with some of the best mannequin challenges thus far. Of course, the song that made the challenge popular is "Black Beatles" by Rae Sremmurd, which is now number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

DeGeneres also made a pretty good point by saying that she probably shouldn't accept videos of fans doing the challenge because it will probably be old by then.

Either way, you can check out DeGeneres' mannequin challenge in the video below.
