O'Grime's "#Planking On Yo Bitch" Video In Honor of National Plank Day
Organizer Dylan Pruitt encouraged "all you cool Planksters out there" to "planksafe," "show off your planking skills, and plank EVERYWHERE, ALL DAY!," and upload your planking pics to plankingx.com, "the ultimate source for planking pics and videos."
But guess who we noticed among Plank Day's celebrity participants? That's right ... Local swaggy mofos L. Rey Reyes and Nikolais Javan of O'Grime.
Now ... Y'know, whether ass-smashing Taco Bell, singing the praises of Udonis Haslem, or sleepin' in the streets like corpses, these homies go hard! So they didn't just lay facedown and take some snapshots. Nope, they went all the way and honored Plank Day by popping off some swag shit (and an accompanying music vid) titled "#Planking On Yo Bitch."
Obviously stoked (though abiding the official instructions, see below), L. Rey and Nikolais hit the streets of South Beach on a mission, screaming, "FUCK CONE-ING! FUCK OWELING! IT'S NATIONAL PLANK DAY! R.I.P. PLANKING! O'GRIME YOPP!"
National Plank Day Official Instructions
When performing a Plank:
1/ You must always lay face down, ensuring your face remains expressionless for the duration of the Plank.
2/ Your legs must remain straight, and together with toes pointed.
3/ Your arms must be placed by your side, held straight and fingers pointed.
4/ You must make it known that you are Planking. Saying 'I am Planking' usually get this across. Sternly announcing it will ensure a good result.
5/ Your safety should always be considered. Properly thought through Planking procedures should always go to plan. Never put your self at undue risk.
6/ Every Plank that is captured must be named.
7/All pics are to be submitted to http://plankingx.com/
The end result: A non-stop, two-minute-and-59-second plankfest that hits all kinds of crazy spots, including a New Times dropbox, a school bus, the sands of SoBe ... Oh, and "yo bitch," of course.
