We, the People of the Awesome, are calling for Planking to be the biggest thing to hit this side of the meridian since Levi’s. The game that’s sweeping the world that hasn’t yet made its way to the US and Canada. Now, it’s time for the laziest game on the planet to reach the part of the world that introduced the drive thru, the Atkins diet, and Coca-Cola.

From Wikipedia:

The lying down game (also known as planking, or face downs) is an activity, popular in Asia and Australia, consisting of lying face down in an unusual or incongruous location. The hands must touch the sides of the body, and having a photograph of the participant taken and posted on the internet is an integral part of the game. Players compete to find the most unusual and original location in which to play. The location should also be as public as possible, and as many people as possible should be involved.

Depending on where you are in the world, the game is called by different names: Actively Lying Down, Face Down, The Lying Down Game, EXTREME Lying Down, 시체놀이 (Playing Dead), or Parkour For The Lazy.

The game has gone so far as the son of New Zealand’s Prime Minister, 16-year-old Max Key, Planking with his father in the background.

If the PM of New Zealand approves, WE, TOO, MUST PLANK!

Rise up! Start Planking, America! And Canada! And Mexico! And all you countries down below Mexico! And all of those island countries, territories, and lost continents out in the Caribbean!

Show us your Planks.

We want to start a movement of Epic Planking. We will achieve greatness and reach the precipice of Awesome with Planking.

Go forth and Plank!
