‘Planking’ is what happens when people are photographed face down with a rigid body, with the success rate of the ‘plank’ determined by level of randomness of its location. Planking is one of those things you either think is dumb and immature, or clever and hilarious.

I am totally onboard, which is why these images by photographer David Toro for DIS magazine are now my screensaver. Who thought planking could be so high fashion?
