Oh dear. I think lamping is far older than Access Hollywood previously thought. I’m disturbed to report that I’m finding evidence that this trend was alive and doing well at the end of the 18th century.
Take that plankers! Our trend is older and cooler XD
"Established in the USA in mid July of 2011, Lamping has become the latest trend. Initially started to mock "planking," it has become a fad all on its own. Planking consist of simply placing a lamp shade on your head, effectively covering your head and face, and positioning yourself in an unusual place, where lamps normally wouldnt be placed. Like planking, lamping has become very competitive amongst creative individuals with too much time on their hands, while also becoming a concern to some who believe it will become just as dangerous as planking."
