We’ve written about why people want to plank, or lie face down stiff as a board in unusual, and sometimes dangerous, locations and upload the photos online. We’ve looked at planking as protest, and at the craze’s suspicious roots.

We’ve explored planking’s young upstarts, such as owling and batting. We’ve even tried out the poses ourselves.

But now, we’ve really all had enough. So a PSA by a group of young Hollywood actors to take a stand against planking is received with a giggle, and then a sigh of relief.

But if standing up straight becomes the newest craze, and even Richard Simmons tries it out, I really don’t know what I’ll do.
