Did Tom Green Invent Planking?

Posted by: Mike Pomranz | July 14, 2011 at 12:00PM

Tom Green made a claim via his Twitter and uploaded video evidence to his YouTube channel to show that he invented "planking" back in 1994 …at least 3 years earlier than other groups claim to have invented it.

Planking has been a huge viral phenomenon (formerly know as a "fad") and finding out who invented it has absolutely no repercussions, so it's important we get to the bottom of this.

After watching the video above, what do you think?  Did Tom Green invent planking?

Follow up question: Who is Tom Green?

Tom Green also spoke to CNN, pointing out that when he did his bit he called it "Dead Guy" since it was someone "lying there in the prone position as if they've died or passed out."

Next up, Tom Green will claim that he also invented "Career Planking."
