    Anyone seen this yet? The following video has gotten 3.5 million views in a week and videos are popping up constantly. You can search YT for more.

    It seems as pointless as planking, sorry. I don't see the appeal I guess?!?!?

    Possibly the dumbest thing I've seen. Besides planking and Gargoyling.

  9. Been done before. There was some clip on Tosh.0 (from northern Europe I believe) where it showed a bridge being all peaceful and then it cuts to heavy music and (naked) people dancing all over it. I'm sure it's on YouTube as well; it's at least a year or two old. Sorry to poop on your thread.

    Maybe so, but I don't think it was as popular...

  12. +1 on the "meh" part.

    Sure, it's viral, but I don't think it's going to be any bigger than any of the other videos which had thier viral moments.
