“Batmanning” enthusiasts start new internet craze
Planking enthusiasts could be accused of taking the craze lying down but this new internet craze is not for the faint hearted.
Known as “Batmanning”, participants dangle vertically from surfaces by their feet with their heads pointed towards the ground.
But as YouTube videos show, the dismount is far from easy, as many have tumbled face first onto the floor.
While some users have praised the group calling themselves “Batman Boilers” for starting the craze, others have condemned it as a step too far.
One wrote: “If this catches on… someone is eventually going to die while attempting this.”
Another read: “Wow. Someone will die.”
