It's gravity-defying.

Forget the #MannequinChallenge, it's all about the #KatlegoMaboeChallenge.

South African TV personality Katlego Maboe found himself on the Twitter trending list yesterday with many fans and local celebs taking part in the the gravity-defying #KatlegoMaboeChallenge. As a way to promote the holiday mood, people tried their funny attempts of the unique pose to mimic local TV presenter. The challenge came after the singer shared pictures for the lifestyle show Expresso Morning Show. The pictures instantly received attention after Twitter users noticed his unique 'blank face' while in mid air pose. Katlego laughed off the online renditions crediting photographer Günther Schubert for the special pictures.

When asked about his special technique, Kalego laughed and gave credit to having a great timer and angled camera.

"I'm glad SAn's had a reason to smile. We all need a smile at the end of a long day," he added. We absolutely agree! Here are some of our favourite moments:

Six years ago, we were introduced to the #PlankingChallenge, and then came the 2014  #IceBucketChallenge that saw many Hollywood celebrities and A-listers dumping a bucket filled with ice and water on their heads to help promote and raise awareness of the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as ‘ALS’ Motor Neurone Disease.

This year, the viral #MannequinChallenge swept the interwebs with many people from around the world sharing their own renditions of the freeze-frame video.
