From Swaggin to Planking !?
Weeks after being informed by our own Cliff-Twong that the bus can swim we are approached with a new outrageous epidemic. Since recently mainly celebs have been posting pictures on facebook with themselves lying flat on their stomach at weird places, the million dollar question why would anyone want to do this? Believe it ornot this has spread as far as Thailand.
This is planking, an activity where people lie down in weird places while being photographed and then post the photos to the Internet, namely Facebook.To be a good planker one must lie still with his/her arms by his/her sides and legs outstretched during all this the body should remain motionless. Sound easy right ? Well that’s not all about planking the weirder the places the better the plank. Holding the record is a well known producer Diplo who was caught planking while riding an elephant
This is the new thing for hipsters and schoolchildren to do on a Friday night , and yes, it looks silly, but at times amusing. So why do celebs plank? Easy to share the scenery with their die hearted fans. The plankers lie on the ground, their friends take a photo and then they stand up again. On-lookers or passersby might stand astonished for some minutes, but that’s still not the main purpose for planking, it’s the pleasurable emotional reaction of happiness that overwhelms these plankers after of seeing their plank on the Internet later that night.In Da Streetz wishes not to go against the idea of planking, In fact we are indeed fascinated over the idea of these celebs joining the action enjoying themselves and not beefing with each other. We do hope that plankers plank responsibly.
