Alabama Prisoners Did The Mannequin Challenge With A Smuggled Smartphone

You'd think being incarcerated would keep people from being up-to-date on the latest social media mictro-trends — but you'd be wrong! Some prisoners in Alabama executed a perfect mannequin challenge video using a smuggled smartphone. Unfortunately, the fact that this was shared thousands of times probably means that someone got in trouble for the contraband mobile device.

According to AI: "[I]t is unknown which Alabama prison the video was filmed inside of and how the inmates were able to get a smartphone to record the video."

The Huffington Post also notes that "[the] issue of prison reform in Alabama has received some added attention following riots at the Holman Correctional Facility in Atmore, Alabama, in March."

Either way, congrats on going viral, boys! But maybe start looking for a hobby that won't get you busted (again).
