No Australia didn’t invent Planking, They might have
came up with a cool name but it was already being
done many many years ago. To answer the question
to who started Planking, we should aknowledge that it
has previously gone by the name of The lying down
game, playing dead game, A Plat Venre. Really Can any one really claim to have invented or
started something so simple, something we all have
done thousands of times in our lives? The short answer
is no, the long answer is who inspired the popularity of
taking a picture of someone lying down and started
the facebook craze. All bullshit aside this is the best history i could dig up.

Playing dead game- Started in South Korea in 2003. Inspired by manga Crayon Shin-Chan. Crayon Shin-Chan was created by Yoshito Usui. This
manga gained international fame in the 1990s. Shin-
Chan, the main character often plays dead to play a
prank on his mother. South Korean Students started
playing dead and coping this in 2003, many group
photos of playing dead were taken and began to go viral through out Asia and facebook. From high school
to kindergarten playing dead to workers and
housewives, every one joined in with Playing Dead.
Some western websites also jumped on board
including facebook.

A PLAT VENRE - (French for on one’s belly) The first picture 3rd of July 2004. With this meme the people
pose the way they would if they impacted the ground.
The website by the same name has over 100 pics that
are divided into different categories. The creators
have appeared on french radio and television. They
also have several facebook groups and gaining in popularity. Was it inspired by the playing dead game? i
will let you be the judge of that, but it did pre-date
lying down game and planking, that’s for sure.

The lying down game- Two friends Gary Clarkson and Christian Langdon from the UK created a facebook
group in 2006. Within the first 2 weeks they attracted
1500 facebook users to join their group. Today Lying
Down Game Facebook Page boasts over 99,000
followers. Lying down game is similar to the playing
dead but in lying down the players appear to be alive but no expression when the photo is taken. Gary
Clarkson Claims they started it when they were kids.
By the time they were 16 they would go to town on a
Saturday and go up and ask people the time, Then
they would just lay down in front of them to get a
reaction. Gary went out and purchased the copyright to the game lying down for £25. Which he has hanging
on his wall.
