C'mon. All the cool people are doing it.
You're not cool if you haven't taken a picture of yourself laying horizontally, praying, or doing something so normal they use it as a stock photo in a picture frame. And how do you expect to define yourself as an individual and stand out from the masses without taking part in an organized dance in a seemingly unorganized world?
Okay, I'm being a tad flippant. But it is tempting right? I mean the world is built by bandwagons. Why not jump on? I finally did:
- Planking: an activity consisting of lying face down in an unusual or incongruous location.
- Tebowing: a neologism derived from Tebow's propensity for kneeling and praying—even during crucial periods of a football game.
- Stocking: a participatory photo fad in which people take pictures of themselves recreating scenes from stock photos.
- Flash Mobbing: a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and sometimes seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, or artistic expression.
