World First!! Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra do the Mannequin Challenge in style

World's First! Qatar Philharmonic Concert does the Mannequin Challenge!


You know that Qatar just had to do the Mannequin Challenge elegantly. The Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra performed My Eyes during Dana Al Fardan's concert "Sandstorm" and we had to hit the pause button.

Filmed in the beautiful Opera Hall at Katara (Qatar's Culture Village). 

The Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra looks like they're frozen in time in this world's first!
