Thought planking was strange? Then how about ‘milking’?

The new online video trend that is starting to go viral involves, quite simply, pouring milk over you. It’s quite simple, when you think about it.

The trend, which is perhaps a safer and a less thrilling alternative to its planking predecessor, recently started in Newcastle, England. A group of teenagers began to make videos of themselves pouring milk on them in places like the supermarket or train station in order to entertain family and friends.

Since uploading their videos to YouTube last week, their videos have received over 30,000 hits. Tom Morris, who helped to make the videos, said they made them because they found the concept funny. George Hoyland, who is also behind the videos said the group did not anticipate their videos going viral.
