Implications - The urban game of playing dead, planking, spread virally at the onset of 2011 and since then, it has inspired numerous other innovations, including other Internet memes, blogs and even advertising.

As such, it's no surprise that both brands and individual people are using it -- through comical ads, public stunts, parodies and more -- to gain attention.
