The mannequin challenge has found its way to a Detroit staple.

Popular Corktown restaurant "Green Dot Stables" pulled off an epic version of the challenge with customers Tuesday night.

The video was posted to their Facebook page.

The mannequin challenge is a viral internet video trend where people act like they're frozen (mannequins) with the song "Black Beatles" by Rae Sremmurd plays in the background.

Rae Sremmurd is a hip hop group founded in 2014 by two brothers from Mississippi: Khalif "Swae Lee" Brown, 21, and Aaquil "Slim Jxmmi" Brown, 22.

They released their second album, SremmLife, 2 in August, of which "Black Beatles," featuring rapper Gucci Mane, is a single.

At their concert on November 3, Rae Sremmurd set fans over the edge when they did a rendition of the #MannequinChallenge of their own.

When Khalif "Swae Lee" Brown posted the video on his official Twitter page, it quickly racked up nearly 75,000 likes -- a sign that the internet's fixation with the #MannequinChallenge isn't going away any time soon.

The first known appearance of the #MannequinChallenge surfaced on Twitter in late October.

It's believed to have been created by high school students at the Edward H. White High School in Jacksonville, Florida.

Others have piled in with increasingly ambitious poses.
