Taiwan’s “Face Down on the Streets Girls” becomes more famous than the Tokyo Floating Girl, many pictures…
The once popular Tokyo Floating girl has quite a lot of people competing to copy her dancing/fluttering in the air skill, but everyone ultimately gets a little tired of looking at her, so change the location and take a look at Chinese Taiwan’s “Face Down on the Streets Girls”.
These photographs are of two young girls in Taiwan, “Jinyu” (25-years-old) in Taipei and “Karren” (28-years-old) in Taichung, who love photography.
仆街 (puk kai in Hokkien dialect and pu jie in Mandarin) means to lie face down on the street, but it can also describe someone who suddenly died on the street and whose body has not been taken away.
UPDATE: Several chinaSMACK readers have informed me that this activity is called “planking” and that there are also other names like “the lying down game” or “facedowns“.
Comments from Mop:
These days, anything is art.
Doing this is going to flatten your chest into absolutely nothing…
Representative of the mentally retarded.
Why did this become popular/famous?
The technique/skill involved? Where is it?
Not bad not bad. [Her] ability to control her body is very good! [Her] sense of balance is strong!
Two words in my mouth that I must say: Mental disorder.
God-like technique/skill… [I] bow down [in awe].
PS: Some of the positions/poses are quite difficult…I tried and couldn’t do them.
[People] sure go to all lengths in order to become famous.
Had there not been an explanation, I would’ve thought it was someone who took their blow-up doll out.
What’s the point of this? [Her] brain must’ve rusted.
What do you think?
