Walsh Brothers walk the planking act all the way to Jimmy Kimmel Live

Kudos to the brothers Walsh, David and Chris, for getting more mileage than I would have suspected for jumping in — er, rather, lying down upon — the "planking" fad.

You see, today's dumb kids are currently enjoying lying down in public places and calling it planking, because they're supposed to resemble wooden planks, or at least their brains are as functional as wooden planks. Or something like that. So the Walsh Brothers, knowing a fun idea when they see one, decided to make their own planking video around Los Angeles.


Only their video caught the attention of L.A.'s local FOX TV affiliate.



And that, in turn, was enough for Jimmy Kimmel Live to play a clip and offer a response.


Right place. Right time. Kudos to the Walsh Brothers for getting TV bumps from doing what you probably were doing in your sleep.
