Richard Simmons owling

He’s done it. Richard Simmons has answered our call. He’s gone owling:

Last week, we asked whether owling, a game in which a person crouches like an owl, could be the new and improved version of planking, the wildly popular game in which a person simply lies face down.

Both planking and owling are performed in unusual and sometimes dangerous locations, and photos are then uploaded online. The more preposterous, the better.

In our last blog post, we included an incredible video of 63-year-old fitness guru Richard Simmons planking, with the hope that he might one day try out owling as well.

Be careful what you wish for.
