Because the Arab Spring, presidential politics, joblessness, and hurricanes are just too boring and complicated, someone has been hard at work on a new Internet trend to displace Planking and Owling. And 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) is here to tell you what it is -- Leisure Diving. They showed some of the new viral videos and photos resulting from the trend, which feature people trying to leap into pools in casual positions.
As one hat-backwards Bermuda shorts-wearing dude Alex Scott said, "Leisure Diving is chilling in mid-air." Scott and John Lewis, roommates in New York, claim to have started what 'Today' called a "frenzy," which now includes the Web site www.leisurediving.com. Scott said the site had gotten submissions from all over the world.
