The new craze in the industry and abroad is planking. Planking is people laying on top of one another face down, as if they we laying in some type of closed compartment. You see folks in the street Planking, at work Planking, and anywhere they can Plank. Planking looks like fun, but the question is where did this craze come from? Justin Beiber, Rosario Dawson, and Amber Rose have been found planking. Many people are doing some crazy as shit like putting their heads in toilet bowel while planking, and doing sexual positions while planking.
Where did the this new phenomenon come from? Many folks says is a replica of slaves in slave ships who where packed like sardines. Planking may not be the craze we think it is, or the just for kicks things kids do. It may be a low key way of disrespecting the forefathers and mothers who where slaves that were brought here on slaves ships. Let’s watch this closely to see where it goes from here.
