Chris Brown joins ‘planking’ craze

PLANKING: Chris Brown

CHRIS BROWN is the latest celebrity to become embroiled in a new craze called ‘planking’.

The 22-year-old singer recently posted a picture on his Twitter page showing his attempts at the practice, which involves individuals lying face down in the most physically challenging and bizarre locations.

In his latest post, the Look At Me Now star is pictured balancing precariously on an oval-shaped shelving unit with the caption, ‘plank!!!’

Other stars who have also been taken in by the craze include teen heart-throb Justin Bieber, former Destiny Child’s star, LeToya Luckett and rapper, The Game.

Sadly the craze hit the headlines recently after a 20-year-old Australian man died in Brisbane after ‘planking’ on a balcony.

A teenage boy was yesterday (July 5), blasted by a judge for lying across a busy rail line to have his photo taken for Facebook.

The court heard how the 14-year-old posed face-up on one of ¬Britain’s busiest railway lines as a pal took the picture while a train hurtled past on the opposite line just a few yards away.
