Planking

Le planking (planchage) est une activité qui consiste à adopter une attitude aussi raide qu'une planche (d'où son nom) dans des endroits publics et à se faire photographier. La photo est ensuite diffusée par Internet via des réseaux sociaux. Les « plankeurs » rivalisent pour trouver l'endroit le plus insolite et original. Histoire[modifier | modifier le code] Le planking est supposé avoir été inventé par Gary Clarkson et Christian Langdon en 1997[1].

Il est d’abord devenu populaire dans le nord-est de l'Angleterre[2], puis dans toute la Grande-Bretagne en été 2009. Variante[modifier | modifier le code] Il existe une variante française nommée « à plat ventre »[3] créée en 2004[4] par deux artistes, Alexis Clairet et Stenkat.
