OK I haven’t done any of that and I stole that line from the Notorious B.I.G. but it doesn’t make the message any less true. Now these guys are in jail because they couldn’t resist going viral. #FAIL. Full story below …

Daily Mail – First they were captured on camera, then they were captured by cops.

Two men were arrested in Huntsville, Alabama at 5am Tuesday after police were sent a gunfight-themed mannequin challenge video that was posted on Facebook in November. The resulting investigation saw cops bringing in the men on gun and drug charges, as well as finding four guns, body armor, packs of marijuana and ammo, WHNT reported.

The video, which shows 19 people – most with guns – posing in a freeze-framed ‘shootout’, was posted on the Facebook profile of Hailey Nichols on November 9. It has since received more than four million views.

Among those viewers were Madison County Sheriff’s Office investigators, who were sent the video by a concerned citizen.

‘You have a lot of people with firearms at one address,’ Captain Mike Salomonsky said. ‘And you have to ask yourself the question, “Why?” and the second question you have to ask yourself: Is it a public safety issue?’
