Move Over Planking, Here Comes Batmanning!
A group of Purdue University students call themselves the "Batman
Boilers" and insist they have shot the first successful batmanning
video — successful both in Batmanning skill and getting it to trend
But don’t try this at home, or you’ll end up doing something even more
trendy, Emergency Rooming:
To "Batman," one hangs upside down, holding on by only
one’s feet from a door, bar, gate, ledge, anything. Easy? Not quite.
In one video, a few giggling teenage girls pick up their friend,
an aspiring batmanner, and let her hang on the closet door. They watch,
cringing, and then… BOOM! The batmanner falls on her head.
