Instead of standing still or running away, as required by Mannequin and Trump Is Coming respectively, though, anyone doing the U Name It Challenge just dances to Suede’s remix of Caesar’s sermon/song.
Here is the song, complete with some examples of the dance:

She has authorized Snoop Dogg to sample the song before.
