Vermont pizzeria takes the Mannequin Challenge

By Denise Greer


Has your pizzeria taken part in a viral Internet sensation?

All month long, family, friends, organizations and businesses have moved on an online viral trend to stand still. Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Goodman’s American Pie in Ludlow, Vermont stayed frozen for nearly two minutes in its #MannequinChallenge video, a pretty impressive feat with the quick bake of its wood-fired pizza.

Remember the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, “Call Me Maybe” or The Harlem Shake? Social media feeds have been flooded with creative video renditions of the latest Mannequin Challenge. Restaurants are taking part to showcase their establishments in unique ways. Why not? Tapping into Internet sensations allows you to relate to your customers on a social level and give them a no-cost, shareable video.

Just remember that any video trend participation should align with your company’s brand.
