The mannequin challenge has undoubtedly been the light-hearted craze of late 2016, but this particular version has a truly meaningful message at its core.
Thomas Worthington posted the video to YouTube and explained his reasons behind making this powerful clip: “My cousin, Jerry, died of a heroin overdose in February, 2016. Since then, I wanted to do a video raising awareness of heroin addiction.
The mannequin challenge videos came out and I thought it was a perfect way to do the video by showing the worst outcome of a heroin overdose scene.
I contacted local authorities to see if they would participate. The Grant County Sheriff was glad to help and contacted the Mayor who gave us the green light to use a few of the county’s resources.
I wanted to show people how this epidemic is effecting families and that addicts shouldn’t be demonized. They are usually good people who made bad choices.”

“I love to see people working together to make a difference in society. Every little bit counts. Especially with the synthetic drug epidemic just getting started. There are now synthetics that are being sold as heroin that are 1000 times more powerful than heroin,” stated Tyler Cornell, CEO of TOCCALife.com (Stock Ticker Symbol: TLIF)
