The Cleveland Cavaliers visited the White House on Thursday to celebrate the Warriors blowing a 3-1 lead in the Finals with President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama.

Their visit included several memorable moments: Obama praising JR Smith for wearing a shirt, Iman Shumpert watching White House staffers move a podium with the bemusement of a child at a magic show, and a fun “mannequin challenge.”

The mannequin challenge is the fun new teen video game in which everyone freezes in place (just like a mannequin!) as the camera pans across the frame. There were groans after the challenge was done by the Dallas Cowboys’ front office aboard a private jet, but Michelle Obama and the Cavs appear to have done it right.
