Video: Met create anti-drink driving mannequin challenge

Have your say

Britain’s biggest police force have created a hard-hitting mannequin challenge, to raise awareness of the dangers of drink driving.

In the last few months, colleagues, artists, athletes and politicians have attempted their own mannequin challenges, standing like statues in videos to depict various scenes. First Lady Michelle Obama, Beyonce, Nicole Scherzinger and the Aston Villa football squad are just some of the celebs to take party in the viral internet trend. But two Met Police constables had the smart idea of creating their own video, to highlight the consequences of driving while under the influence of booze or drugs. The one minute clip shows the harrowing aftermath of a drink driving accident. The fictional driver had been partying the night before and had not realised alcohol would still be in his bloodstream the next day.
