Planking - the action of lying face down with arms to the sides of the body,
in unusual public spaces and photographing it.
The term “planking” was coined in Australia and became a fad in 2011.
Planking has its origins in the lying down game in Europe and Japan (1997).
It has also been known as “playing dead” (South Korea 2003),
“à plat ventre” (“On one’s belly”, France 2004), and
“extreme lying down” (Australasia, 2008).
