This is not a new craze as it began in Britain about 14 years ago. The was a couple bored teenage friends, Gary Clarkson and Christian Langdon started this phenomenon. They called it "the lying down game". The game consisted of Clarkson or Langdon photographing each other lying down in an unusual place. So, "planking" basically means the craze of being photographed lying face down in a bizarre situation.
For me it's just plain stupid,crazy and pointless thing to do. BUT for most people who have are already addicted to the craze, it's a fun, amusing and exciting thing.
Now, let's see some "planking" photos that I've found on the internet. You can search for more photos to see how some people went to certain extends just to get the best planking photos.
What do you think of this craze? Would you like to try it too?
