Who’s soooo over the Mannequin Challenge?! It’s become a bit annoying, right? Well, this video just might change your mind.

It’s turned the silly viral  trend on its head.

From Trayvon Martin to Sandra Bland, this is a haunting re-enactment of controversial deaths of black men and women at the hands of police officers. Or in Trayvon’s case, a wannabe cop.

It even shows someone kneeling as Colin Kaepernick.

The one-minute video is called “Black and Blue,” highlighting what the directors says it means to be black in America.

This is definitely a mannequin challenge that’s making hearts stand still.
