It’s official: “We’re running out of stuff to post on the Internet!” So says 10-year old Sloane in the latest episode of the Fine Brothers’ Kids React—‘Kids React To Planking’. And you know what? I think he might be right.
In ‘Kids React To Planking’ twelve kids, aged 6 through 14, are introduced to planking, owling, teapotting and horsemanning and asked what they think about these fads. The kids vote on whether or not they would consider planking, talk about why they think these fads were invented, and even come up with some photo meme ideas of their own.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with planking—it is a newish trend that took root this summer on Facebook in which you take a picture of yourself lying face down with your hands at your sides (like a plank of wood). Planking currently has over 700,000 likes on Facebook and, though the trend began in Australia, it has spread around the globe.
Check out the video below and let us know what you think. Do you agree with these kids about the planking trend?
