The mannequin challenge has been dominating our social feeds for what feels like forever, but this is one you won't want to ignore.

The Calgary Police Service has teamed up with emergency crews and Alberta Health Services to put together the most chilling challenge we've seen – and it's driving home an important message.

In the short clip posted to Facebook, the camera pans through what appears to be the scene of a traffic accident, with crash victims, officers, paramedics and crushed vehicles.

A series of text messages are shown coming from a phone inside one of the crash vehicles. A panicked friend is asking the victim where they are.

It's a life-saving reminder that distracted driving is very dangerous and must be taken seriously.
