Parachuting Donkey Advertises and Shocks

The donkey was tied to a parachute as a promotional stunt. The shrills of the donkey led to the tears of children as people began filming the event and calling local newspapers. Not until later were regional police called. When did radio advertising and blimps not become enough?

The story was aired on Russia Today:

    I wanted to russian here and make a smart-assed comment but my creative faculties seem to be on vacation. I can only imagine what the Tijuana version of this stunt would be…

    But seriously, I hope that the idiots who pulled this off aren't able to buy their way out of punishment. What kind of asshole thinks that subjecting an animal to a half hour or more of absolute terror is an effective marketing technique.

    I am totally appalled by this stunt. I don’t even know what they were promoting. I was so outraged.
