Where to plank in Toronto. Or, how to partake in the Internet’s weirdest trend since Rickrolling


Published:

Have you spotted someone randomly lying face down in a weird place lately? Chances are they were planking. This so-called “art” has been the meme of the moment since earlier this year, and it doesn’t look like it’s ending anytime soon. Personally, we think it’s a pretty ridiculous pastime, but being good sports, we thought we would help out our local plankers (planksters?) with our list of the most ridiculous spots to plank in Toronto.

1. Queen’s Park. Planking can be done here with minimal embarrasment. Most pedestrians would probably mistake your facedown stance as an act of protest.

2. ROM. May we suggest planking near the mummies in the Egypt collection? You’ll fit right in.

3. Morrissey Magic Shop. Since planking seems to defy logic and gravity, why not make it more authentic by setting one up at a real magic shop? Who knows, maybe you’ll actually end up levitating.

4. Toronto Reference Library.  Planking thrives on the art of surprise, and nobody will expect it here. Plus, the bookworms will probably be thankful for the distraction.

5. The CN Tower. If Edgewalk isn’t enough to scare the bejesus out of you, maybe planking on The CN Tower’s pod is — while appropriately harnessed, of course. Getting someone to accompany you so they can take the required photo will probably be tricky, though.

6. Toronto moose. Because planking on a moose is patriotic. It has to be.

7. Canoe Landing Park. That's right, Douglas Coupland's not the only one who gets to be weird around here. We recommend planking right inside his big red canoe.

8. That weird thing outside the AGO. There doesn't seem to be a single flat surface on Henry Moore's Two Large Forms, but who doesn't like a challenge?

Please remember to plank safely!
