Only The Boss could take on the mannequin challenge in the most powerful building in the country. Yup, Bruce Springsteen showed off his best freeze move alongside some pretty other powerful people as Ellen DeGeneres challenged the group in the hilarious video.
Bruce, along with wife Patti Scialfa, were at the White House on Tuesday getting ready to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom when the comedian took the video. Robert DeNiro is seen first in the clip and then Scialfa sitting on a couch, looking at the room that was filled with people like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Tom Hanks, Diana Ross and Michael Jordan. Though President Barack Obama was not in the clip, he was there to hand out the awards just after the video was taken.
This may be one of the most star-studded challenges yet and in 19 hours the video has already received 1.6 million views on Instagram.
Springsteen isn’t the only Jersey native to take on the mannequin challenge. Jon Bon Jovi was part of one with Hillary Clinton on her campaign plane before the election.
And Laurie Hernadez actually did a handstand for her version of the challenge on the set of Dancing With The Stars.
Can we claim a win for Jersey when it comes to the mannequin challenge? We think so.
