When you start a new company, you want to really get people’s attention so they know your there. Most people put an ad in local papers, some do television commercials, other’s hook donkeys up to parasails. Yep, it’s true. You better believe there is video for you after the jump.
In mother Russia, you don’t ride the donkey, the donkey rides you! Well, it rides the boat, and wow does it have some parasailing skills.
A group of men on a beach at Golubitskaya, Russia, on the Sea of Azoz, strapped it into a harness to promote their new parasailing company.
“This is a little town and we all know that donkey well,” one local woman told reporters. “He worked for several years on the beach, being photographed with tourists.”
My favorite quote:
“The donkey screamed and children cried,” regional police spokeswoman Larisa Tuchkova told the AFP news agency.
What was the donkey supposed to say?!
“THIS IS AWESOME! WAHOO! SEE YA IN A HALF HOUR SUCKERS!”
Here’s the video:
