I think we can all generally agree that planking is not smart. If you live under a rock and have never heard of planking, here is a brief overview of planking.

Basically you just lie down motionless and take pictures. The idea is to get these pics in unusual and crazy places.  I've heard urban legends of plankers dying in a bid to get the perfect pose on balconies and such- just... don't do it ok? 

We actually did a post on trending poses- specifically jumping. A photographer- David Toro takes this to a whole new level when he did a fashion photo shoot using models in planking positions. It's for a magazine called DIS. You can read more here. There is also a gallery there as well.

Enjoy these high fashion planking  pics- and remember, don't do it!

Planking is such a bad idea....It sounds so painful. I can't bring myself to look at the pictures! I'm glad owling is the new "thing" and all, but..it's kind of boring to be honest! We should start a new pose. :P

This article by the Daily News in NY states that a man actually died from planking while trying to plank on a balcony. Read it here.

I see planking pics everywhere! It's really fun and unique to do especially if there's a really nice background. I do think it's extremely dangerous though. I watched a youtube video of a person planking and she fell when the oven door opened. Click here to watch it!

To whoever that wants to do planking, PLEASE be careful!

Squirrel Planking! on Aug 15, 2011 @ 02:44 pm

Planking Squirrels are probably one of the cutest things I have ever seen. And once, I saw a baby wearing puffy shorts dancing to jazz music. Watch the entire video here.
