It seems like people are looking for more and more ways to express their mob mentality in playful ways, one of the latest outlets involving the 'Stocking Is The New Planking' site. It encourages people to recreate stock photos from websites such as iStockphoto and Shutterstock.
Conceived by the fine folks at Texas-based studio Projekt202, the Stocking Is The New Planking site is quite clever and creative, despite relying on the ability to be a good copier. Considering that there are countless of stock photos out on the Internet, there are endless pose possibilities for anyone interested in mimicking one. The ones in which the person doing the mimicking actually looks like the model in the stock image are particularly hilarious.
