Was that Tony Romo being stuffed in the overhead compartment? In any event, Jerry Jones was not about to miss out on the fun. He and other members of the Cowboys’ front office created their own “mannequin” moment on their private jet.
The Bills didn’t even wait to play their Monday night game against the Seahawks to answer the challenge. They posted video from their flight to Seattle.
It wasn’t just NFL teams taking flight with the challenge. The NBA’s Bucks also got their midair mannequin on, and they gave viewers an entertaining look at a card game. Was rookie Thon Maker counting all the money he had just won? And is Michael Beasley wearing nail polish? Milwaukee gets points deducted, though, for shooting the video vertically. Tisk, tisk.
The Giants on the other hand, went with what can already be described as the old-fashioned route, making like mannequins in their locker room following a 28-23 home win over the Eagles. The Steelers beat all their league-mates to the punch by answering the challenge Friday.
Of course, you can trust NASCAR to keep the action, or complete lack thereof, in its garages. Sunday’s rain delay before the AAA Texas 500 provided the perfect opportunity for several teams to answer the challenge.
