How’s About Horsemaning?

Horsemaning, also called as “fake beheading” is currently expected as the new Internet meme that will take over the planking. However, there were some posts burst out from both Gawker and Dembot pointed out that the meme was genuinely created (or, “faked”) by BuzzFeed. While the site didn’t officially state it’s some kind of joke or what, they didn’t deny it either.

So now the Horsemaning was coined as “Forced Meme” or “Fake Meme”, but is it really important that the meme is deliberately created or not? We’re not sure about the answer, but Internet people are already taking up the trend, and below are some neat Horsemaning photos for you to enjoy!

While the meme has been quite well-received, there are also people criticizing the act is so nonsense, and it’s only for boring people who don’t know how to spend their time. Well, the photos above pretty much proved that even the professional photographers also involved in the meme, so it’s probably not totally about boredom, but some kind of creativity that sparks some hilarious and happy moment.

Anyway, why not relax and have fun with them! :) Think you spotted a creative planking photo that will beats some pieces above? Share it to us! We just don’t mind to have more fun, especially with our readers!
