A cult photo pose resembling a catalogue stance from the likes of Littlewoods. To acheive the stance, the poser stands upright with one foot forward with cocked knee, the other leg straight, and places one hand on hip and the on forehead as if to shield eyes from sun. Facial expression should be steely and intense, and eyes must be gazing into the distance. This move started after a young advertising executive in London, with the last name Woodford, struck the pose and it was immortalised on camera. It has since been emulated the world over. It has been referred to as 'the new planking' but those who perform The Woodford claim it is much cooler.
Wanting to impress friends when a photo is being taken at a crowded bar, Ben struck The Woodford, much to the joy if onlookers.
