A footage showing shoppers laden with produce taking a tumble in the supermarket aisle is in fact the latest online fad.

Falling involves participants dreaming up the most amusing and embarrassing ways to trip themselves up in front of other shoppers.

The stunt is filmed by a co-faller as those taking part hurl themselves to the ground, throwing shopping goods into the air and rolling around in mock pain in front of bemused onlookers.

Groups of people have been indulging in the latest craze by tripping up in supermarkets, libraries and even in the middle of the street – wherever there is an audience.

This is the latest in a line of internet fads featured on video site YouTube.

Others include cone-ing – where people would order an ice-cream cone at a drive-through fast food outlet, then when they were handed the cone that would grab it by the “wrong” end to the bemusement of the restaurant staff.

The most popular has been planking, which saw participants lying flat face-down across unusual objects – including balconies, rock outcrops and billboards.
