Back in September 2009 we reported on a fad that was sweeping the U.K. called Planking or the Lying Down Game. It's now become really popular here in the U.S. as well.
The object of the game is to lye down flat on your face in as strange a place as possible while keeping perfectly still. After your plank has been photographed, you place the often hilarious pics on Facebook or Twitter.
The fad has even reached the NBA where Orlando Magic Center, Dwight Howard declared a plank war yesterday on twitter, before posting several pics of himself planking.
