PITTSBURG, Kan., Nov. 17 (UPI) -- A Kansas dog owner shared a video of his well-trained dog mastering the "mannequin challenge" in a variety of complex poses.

Ryan Thomas posted a video to Twitter showing his boxer, Boston, holding completely still in various complicated poses, including taking cookies out of the oven and balancing tortilla chips on his head.

"My dog has the best #mannequinchallenge," Thomas wrote.

The "mannequin challenge" trend on social media involves people -- and in cases such as this, animals -- holding perfectly still in an imitation of a mannequin. Famous participants in the challenge include Hillary Clinton and Jon Bon Jovi, as well as the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Thomas joked the mannequin challenge isn't Boston's only trick: "He actually is a really great ping-pong player," he tweeted alongside a photo of the dog posing with a paddle and ping-pong balls.
