The soon-to-be viral shenanigans are described by YouTube poster Shannah as "NRS employees lolly-gagging around the office". We prefer to think of it as the explanation for why so many in Mortal Kombat X suddenly have a beard.

Standing still en masse has become the latest craze sweeping the internet over the last month or so.

If viral video memes are your kind of thing, flash back to 2014 for the now classic NetherRealm Ice Bucket Challenge. It's very cool. (That's right).
