People Are Getting Naked And Pretending To Be Frozen Chickens

Forget planking, #FrozenChook is where it's at.

Posted on

Right now, right this second, normal people like you and I are stripping off their clothes and posing like chickens.

The frozen chicken. It's a staple in most family freezers, whether it's bought for the holidays or left in the freezer until it cryogenically freezes beyond recognition. It has left its spindly three-clawed footprints across society.

Now, a new phenomenon known as "Frozen Chook" has risen, following in the footsteps of "planking," and the internet is having a ball.

Frozen Chook, much like planking, can be done almost anywhere.

The act involves mimicking the conventional frozen chicken bought in supermarkets, with the model crouching flat, with the backs of their calves pressed against their naked buttocks. An arched back allows the model to recreate the classic chicken posture, and tucked elbows simulate wings.

If anything, the meme treads the fine line between joke and art.

"It started off as a party trick, and would always get a positive reaction," a representative of the Frozen Chook Facebook page told BuzzFeed News."Our friend group has a private Facebook page in which we upload videos and random material to share between ourselves – this is where #FrozenChook took off for us."

"It started off as a party trick, and would always get a positive reaction," a representative of the Frozen Chook Facebook page told BuzzFeed News.

"Our friend group has a private Facebook page in which we upload videos and random material to share between ourselves – this is where #FrozenChook took off for us."

There are a range of Frozen Chooks being uploaded to the Facebook Community page regularly, with varying styles, techniques, and framing.

Originally, the movement started as a competition – with people continually trying to trump each other's Frozen Chooks – but over time it became something more.

From mattresses on the side of the road...

...to lush wilderness...

...to the local KFC...

The Frozen Chook has already been captured in dozens of environments.

The relatively young community has so far failed in its bid to go global, but as with all great things, it's only a matter of time.

As Frozen Chooks continue to get more and more creative, one has to wonder how far this will go.
