    Very interesting is how these shots are approached with a sense of humor, though at the same time they’re dead serious.

    my friend courtney did this back in 2009 and left a comment on one of the photos that said, “lying down game!”. she was totally wasted in the photos. all of the pics i’ve seen since, these are the earliest documented. SO GOOD.
