Want your own pet giraffe?

Check this out! Sokoblovsky Farms is a Russian farm located just 80 kilometers outside Krasnodar and they breed the Petite Lap Giraffe. Currently the only way to get one is to sign up on a waiting list. I’m lucky number 856,789 so I will most likely be dead before I can get my hands on one but the baby they’re currently expecting is coming in about 150 days and is going to the prince for his birthday.

Petite Lap Giraffes are very funny animal that require special care. They need lots of love. Hugs and kisses every day. Otherwise they make tears. These giraffes have no problem with kids because they do not bite.  All they need to survive is distilled water and bonsai tree leaves.

Okay so obviously this is a hoax. It was a tiny viral marketing success put on by DirectTV and a very good one at that. It’s amazing how some people actually thought this was real. They did a great job of pulling off the whole stunt and it definitely got a lot of people talking and of course when something cool like this people want to know who’s behind it so DirectTV got good public advertising.
