Ellen DeGeneres orchestrates star-studded White House Mannequin Challenge — watch

on November 22, 2016, 5:45pm


Two years after snapping undoubtedly one of the best Oscar selfies in history, Ellen DeGeneres has gifted us today with possibly the #MannequinChallenge to end all other #MannequinChallenges. Sorry, yeah, it’s better than Macca’s.

Filmed at the White House ahead of President Barack Obama’s Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony, the clip squeezes in a handful of the day’s esteemed honorees — Bruce Springsteen, Robert De Niro, Tom Hanks, Michael Jordan, Diana Ross, Bill Gates, and DeGeneres, among many others — into just 33 seconds of footage. Talk about star power!

Now there’s always that one person toward the end that has to botch the whole thing and render it imperfect, but with this many famous faces included, I still say mission accomplished. Your country thanks you for your service, Ellen.

See if you can spot all the stars in the video up above.
