Hillary Clinton aces 'Mannequin Challenge' (with Bon Jovi) to encourage voting on Election Day

The "Mannequin Challenge" has made its way onto Hillary Clinton's campaign plane.

Clinton and her staff aced the latest viral internet "challenge" in a bid to remind people to get out and vote on Election Day.

For those who haven't been paying attention over the past week, the new trend features cell phone videos of groups of people standing as still as possible.

In Clinton's case, the shot sweeps past frozen Clinton staffers toward the back of the plane — hey, there's Bill Clinton! — before landing on the Democratic candidate herself, who is standing next to a guitar-wielding Jon Bon Jovi.

At the end, someone shouts, "And we're good!" and the group breaks into big applause. The video is tagged with the line, "Don't stand still. Vote today."

Bon Jovi was one of several rockers who played at Clinton's final rally in Philadelphia on Monday night. Fellow New Jersey icon Bruce Springsteen was also on the bill.

The Clinton campaign joins the likes of comedian Kevin Hart, the TODAY anchors, and a host of NFL players in being the latest to take the #MannequinChallenge, which, like The Harlem Shake and The Ice Bucket Challenge, has swiftly conquered the online world (and is likely to be long forgotten come Inauguration Day).
