Kathie Lee and Hoda on the ‘Today’ Show Are Our First Celebrity Horsemaning Team

Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, we didn’t know you had it in ya! This week, “horsemaning” (the new/original planking) swept the Internet and quickly became a meme. Mere days ago, no celebrities had jumped on this bandwagon — like they did with planking, owling, etc. — but now the ladies of the Today show’s fourth hour have proven themselves to be meme trailblazers.

As you can see, that’s Hoda laying so that her head is obscured, and Kathie Lee pretending to be the decapitated head in question. Technically, the person lying down is supposed to put her arm around the other person’s head so that it looks like she’s holding it, Headless Horseman-style. That said, the book was an inspired touch.

Part of the fun of horsemaning is that you need two people to do it. So even before Hoda and Kathie Lee went for it, we’d been wondering which famous pairs would be up to the task. Here are some others we’d like to see:

  • Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore
  • Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel
  • The Situation and Snooki
  • Gwyneth Paltrow and one of her kids
  • Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber
