Planking – level 3

23/05/2011 22:48

Planking is a new hobby that became very popular in Australia. “Plank” is a long piece of wood. Planking is actually very simple to do. All you have to do is to lie down on your belly with your face down, put your arms alongside your body and stop moving. Then let someone around your take a picture and then post it on the internet. The more unusual place, the better. People of different ages try this, sometimes successfully, sometimes not. You can see two videos. On the second one, a man tries to do planking on the hedge. It is not possible. The place is unplankable. It is not possible to do planking on it.
