escalator-girlA TEXAN girl has sparked a new 'escalator planking' craze after posting a video of herself gyrating at the top of a stairwell.


The gorgeous blonde adopts the standard horizontal planking position (although she is face up) at the top of moving staricase.

Using a combination of the up and down rubber escalator bands she is spun around – to the cheers and laughter of an assembled crowd.

The escalator planking is a new twist on a world craze which has swept the internet.

British newspaper The Guardian describes planking thus: “The rules are simple: you must lie face down, palms flat against your sides, with your feet together and pointing at the floor.

“Points are awarded for an original location and for the number of spectators and participants involved.

“You must, of course, have somebody take a photo. Without a photo, you're just a person lying down.

“This is planking, described variously as a global participatory art project, the lazy man's free-running, a "pointless internet craze", the new flash-mobbing and, in the words of one incensed online commenter, "a sick, pagan pastime".”
