E3 Planking

Looking at pictures from E3 is pretty cool. The event is a feast for the senses, with tons of things to see and do.

I have often found myself thinking, “This photo is pretty neat, but it might be better if there were a brown guy lying face down and motionless in the shot.”

These photographs taken over the course of 90 minutes at E3 on Wednesday, 6/8/11. Though seemingly magical in origin, the events that transpired developed naturally, as we did not go to E3 with the intention of taking 40+ planking pictures.

I saw a bed. Then I thought of lying down. Then I thought of planking! And that’s how it all started… Check out that fierce gaze!

This model totally knew what planking was and was more than happy to participate. Where did her stilettos go? They totally blended in to the background with that camouflage.

Probably the plank that I’m most proud of. Retractable elastic barriers cannot stop me! I like to think that Marcus Fenix would approve of my guerilla tactics.

Barney Rubble…. TROUBLE!!
It’s amazing how that plane managed to burrow under that pile of cinder blocks. Must have already researched tunneling claws (StarCraft 2 reference ;).
