Planking in Taiwan


Karren poses for a photograph while demonstrating planking during an interview with Reuters outside Taiwan's National Theatre in Taipei May 25, 2011. Lying face flat on the ground may not be the world's most glamourous photo pose, but two Taiwanese "planking" women have made a name for themselves on the Internet -- and hope to use the craze to spread positive social messages. Calling themselves the Pujie Girls, which translates to "falling on the street" in Mandarin, the pair are Taiwan's most well-known plankers, with almost 100,000 fans following them on Facebook. — REUTERS/Nicky Loh
