‘Who thought this would be a good idea?’ Was the first thing that came to my mind when I watched this video.
This video captures the moment a 22-man gang in Huntsville, Alabama thought it would be a grand old idea to do the mannequin challenge, reports to the Washington Post.
But just how does a gang in Huntsville, Alabama do the mannequin challenge? I’ll tell you how. They pose for a ‘shootout’ style freeze-frame, posing with well over a dozen handheld guns…
And the funniest part of it all? Two of the guys in the video have already been arrested for possession of firearms.
Who would’ve thought that being easily identifiable while holding shotguns, handheld machine guns, and pistols would get you in trouble with the law?
Apparently as the video went uber viral, reaching millions of viewers across the globe, the video also made its way to the local police department who fancied checking out whether all of the guns in the clip had the correct paperwork.
As the video quite clearly reveals a house in the local area police were able to head straight over to the address where they found more than enough evidence to arrest a handful of fellas.
Fantastic work guys…
