Achtung, readers, achtung. First order of business: I shat myself. Not to worry, you will not smell anything and I will clean it up later. Second order of business: Yes, I am an idiot. More on that later. Back to the act of shitting myself. You must wonder why I did such a thing (because you realize it is unpleasant, don’t you?). Well, because I went on a helicopter ride over Antwerp, my beautiful hometown. And you couldn’t have forseen you’d shit yourself, dear the.ego.tripper? Good question, readers. But the answer is no. I was invited by Eastpak’s pr agency to witness the start of their new campaign. Their mysterious idea: when was the last thing you did something for the first time? It kept me wondering for a few days.
Unfortunately shitting myself was not the first time. But riding a helicopter (is riding the correct verb here? I mean: sitting in a helicopter while someone is flying it) definitely was! What an exhilarating surprise. And you know what: it was awesome! I saw my city from a complete different angle. I must say Antwerp is quite impressive from up high. If you have the money and the diaper, I’d recommend it.
Alright, about me being an idiot. So, what happened was, I filmed my helicopter ride holding my phone the wrong way. But honestly, I had smellier stuff to think about, so please forgive me for my mistake. You can still enjoy the little movie I made, can you not?[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pajyJLIxjg&w=960&h=720]
Ah yes, of course I need to do some advertising for Eastpak as well. And they do have some good travel stuff, I must say. In their new media campaign Eastpak wants to inspire everyone to look for new experiences and discover new ways to enrich our lives. Good plan, Eastpak, I think you just stole that idea from the.ego.tripper! Anyway, the big question Eastpak is asking is this: “When was the last time you did something for the first time?” Please leave your answer in a comment!!
