The Portuguese national team’s Mannequin Challenge made waves on Saturday as Cristiano Ronaldo was front and center in his underwear, because did you really expect anything else?

Now, it’s the German national team’s turn to ripple the social media waves.

As you’d expect, they’re all drinking. They’re at a fancy restaurant, so they’re not chugging beer from boots, but they held to form in a slightly classier way with wine a-plenty.

Head coach Jogi Löw can be seen about to get up from his chair with glass in hand, Shkodran Mustafi and Mats Hummels are at each other’s throats with Miroslav Klose looking on (points off for blinking), Thomas Muller is practicing good table manners through the whole ordeal about to place his napkin in his lap, and there appears to be some fork sword-fighting as well. Your typical German outing. Take a look:

Germany took down San Marino in World Cup qualifying by an 8-0 scoreline, so some celebration was in order.

It must be said, the music takes away from it all, but otherwise, how would you grade this one out? Who did it better, the Germans or the Portuguese?

Clubs have gotten in on the act too, with Borussia Dortmund and Orlando City part of the group.
