Everybody from Rae Sremmurd to Hillary Clinton already got in on the Mannequin Challenge action, so it was only a matter of time before Desiigner made his mark on the viral trend. He brought along a fellow Adidas-repping star in the Timberwolves rookie guard Kris Dunn at the Mall of America Champs Sports yesterday.

Starting with Dunn and Desiigner frozen mid-pound in the Champs entrance, this take on the Mannequin Challenge subs in Desiigner's "Timmy Turner" for the usual "Black Beatles" backing track. Circling the store in single extended take, the video includes a couple easter eggs like fans wearing panda masks and even frozen mall patrons outside of the store's windows.

Dunn and Desiigner manage to hustle around out-of-shot to end up in the video's final frame, where the notoriously manic rapper finally gets to wild out -- like we all knew he would.
