Manny Pacquiao's round-six knockout in his fight against Juan Manuel Marquez Tuesday has sparked a new Internet craze that will most likely obliterate planking as a forgotten fad. Netizens call the new rage, "Pacquiaoing" or "Mannying".
Internet users around the world exploded right after Pacman's shocking loss, that the boxer's lifeless image lying down triggered a stream of Internet copycats overnight.
The knockout meme even flooded online, with Pacquiao's unforgettable planking-like image has the Filipino icon lying down in several hilarious spots. Hot107.9 blog posted several of the images like in an American football arena, badly beaten in a field by three men with a baseball bat, in a wrestling ring with former wrestler The Rock, lying in concrete beside the Dark Knight, in an old computer game "Punchout" (with game character Little Mac) and another photo with Michael Jackson asking, "Manny, are you OK... are you OK, Manny?"
Instagram pictures also rushed online with users uploading images where they mimic the Filipino boxer's knocked-out body. Daily Mail posted several Instagram images where it also described how "Mannying" can be done. "Unlike the rigid posture needed to maintain the plank, people who want to try Mannying can do it anywhere with a floor as long as they go limp."
Pacquiao went down and crashed faced first after walking into Marquez's right hand counter, seconds before the end of the sixth round.
