Mike the Pies took part in the Mannequin Challenge on Sunday the 13th of November 2016. It got an incredible reaction online and within a week it got 50,000 views. It was picked up by various agencies and as a result we were contacted by the Ray Darcy show to appear on their live TV show the following Saturday Night. On Thursday 24 November, RTE’s today Show visited Mike the Pies and we recreated the Mannequin Challenge.
