Swart Gevaar

Watch this video. Seriously, if you do only one thing today, watch this video. It left me speechless, gobsmacked, mouth-gaping... as you can see, I have since recovered. It's long but it's worth it. Seriously.

Stolen from, who stole it from someone else.

The true power of the video demonstrated by the fact that Koekie couldn't even concentrate on the episode of "Girls of the Playboy Mansion" that followed ... Seriously, it's that good.

Peaches said...

Ok, made it until they tackled the poor little bugger into the water.

So Mills, did Koeks just launch herself on the internet with unrestrained gusto as soon as I left?

Thanks for a fab weekend you two!

ps: Koeks, did you show Mills the pic of the noombies from the beach?

The guys talking in the background are a riot. I wonder what all the international people think of afrikaans ;)

Koekie said...

Boom: I still can't get over it. Wow indeed. As Mills says, Girls of the Playboy Mansion took a back seat, and that's saying a lot of me.

Peaches: Of course he saw the noombies! Hope the saddle-soreness subsides. There's nothing like a bit of koekie-acclimitisation for the Netherlands...

Chews: Loved the comments in the video too. Especially the female pommie cheering the buffalo on, "yes! chase him! get him!"

Koekie said...

ps. Peaches, if you only watched as far as the initial tackle, you missed the main bit! Baby takes a dip, gets fought over by lions and crocodiles, buffaloes round up to get baby back. Baby stands up and walks away from lions, buffalos fling lions in the air... it's like a all-out security guard strike.

Peaches said...

Stuff around. So they kick some serious lion backside/ Excellent.

There was commentary? Stuff around, really missed out trying to watch it at work on this useless-speakerless pc.

Koekie-pipe. Unrelated - but back to your pregnancy/child-hating revelation. What a hilarious post!

Admittedly I've been known to have the odd maternal stirrings, but if my child resembled Kobus Wiese I'd drop-kick him into a lake full of crocodiles.

You rock

There's no theft in the land of blogs I'm sure. I posted that on 18 May. But... I didn't film it. So theft it must have been!
Incredible clip, but what a classic to listen to the guide's comments

Ah, the ignorance!
