Are Splits the New Plank in New York?

A new trend is taking over New York City and it all started with Vine star Logan Paul, a social media star on the rise with 8.4 million followers on the app.

By now, you’ve probably seen the video of Paul breaking out in a split on the subway and other odd locations across the city including a busy intersection. The video has garnered 259.6K likes.

If you remember, a couple years ago, planking, lying face down in an unusual location with both hands touching the sides of the body, was one of the biggest comedy trends on the Internet, with people stopping at nothing to outdo each other.

Could splits be the new plank?

Most people can’t break out in a split like Logan or this guy below in a now viral Facebook clip, but you know people will make a way! We can’t wait to see the outrageousness on Instagram! Brace yourselves!
