Abducted by Skydiving Clowns: A Legendary Experience

The focus of Heineken’s Dropped campaign is adventure, of an unexpected kind. Dropped Poland features Clint, a graphic designer from South Africa. He seems like a pretty normal guy, with a big smile and and careless dark hair. He has no idea what he’s in for.

When the adventure begins, Clint is surrounded by clowns, in full makeup and clown jumpsuits. At this point, though, Clint is blindfolded, so he doesn’t know who is guiding him. He is still blindfolded when the clowns lead him onto a small plane and the whole group of them takes off from the ground. It has to be unnerving for Clint, riding in a prop plane blindfolded, presumably unaware of the plan.

The clowns remove the blindfold and Clint is surprised to see them, but he does not seem shocked to see everyone strapping on parachutes. Even blindfolded, it wouldn’t be too difficult to deduce that you were going skydiving when you signed up for an undisclosed adventure and find yourself riding in a scary little airplane (scary little airplanes have a unique feel; they can easily be identified, even while blindfolded). Clint seems relatively collected considering how surreal the situation must have been.

But when the clowns open the jump door, Clint is visibly nervous. One by one, the clowns leap from the plane, laughing maniacally, as the once-smiling graphic designer is strapped to his tandem partner. If it was surreal before, the experience through Clint’s eyes must at this point cause the lines of reality to blur. Skydiving alone, especially the moment at which the jump door is approached, is enough to set emotions spinning. Being surrounded by strangers in clown makeup cannot make the experience any easier to comprehend. Clint the South African graphic designer releases a shout and leaps through the jump door of a scary little airplane, strapped to a clown.

His Heineken Dropped adventure has only just begun.

The ‘box’ is located in the center of Wenceslas Square and features a large terrace, which together with the particularity of the restaurant itself, attracts all sorts of clients, including Mick Jagger, who celebrated his 60th birthday there.

Bellevue restaurant

Bellevue Restaurant combines European and Czech cuisine to create a perfect fine dining experience. The view of the Prague Castle from the tables adds to the magic of the restaurant and its dishes. In the summer you can enjoy an evening out on the terrace drinking wine and listening to the subtle murmur of the Vltava River flowing in the background. Try the goat cheese salad and the cod filet on a bed of tagliatelle and vegetables with a champagne sauce.

 

Lvi Dvur restaurant

Lvi Dvur (or Lion’s Court) Restaurant is located in the Royal Gardens of Prague Castle. Until the 18th century, Lion’s Court was used as a place to breed wild animals such as lions and bears. When animal breeding declined and the last bear departed, the location was converted into a restaurant. When Prague Castle was later opened to the public, the restaurant was restored multiple times until the final adaptation in 1999 brought it to its current form. Lion’s Court is a tavern style restaurant that offers many of the traditional Czech dishes, as well as the pub menu and a long list of delicious wines.

La Degustation Boheme Bourgeoise

La Degustation Boheme Bourgeoise Restaurant offers traditional Czech cuisine with a modern twist. It has a different philosophy about food: food is an extraordinary experience. That is why they cook small meals that arouse all the senses. Curiosity is followed by centered perception and the feeling of unsated appetite, and then comes the craving for more. And to add to the perfection, each small dish is paired with a small taster drink, from wine to beer to fruit juices, depending on what you are savoring at that precise moment.

Corsica Island

Corsica Island

Travel Positive Review On Corsica Island

Most people understand the pleasure of traveling and in one or two ways everyone wishes to travel to a far place before they die. Traveling to scenic places is very interesting and those who have had a chance to climb Corsica can bear me witness. Corsica is also referred as the mountain situated in the sea. It is in France and has the best landscape fit for adventuring during vacations. The icy and rocky scrambles take less than an hour from the warm sea waters makes climbing an interesting activity.

The warm sea waters laps the shores of the island and comes with a breeze causing a cooling effect. You get to climb series of rocks from the weathered granite rock to limestone rocks. One can take any route as there are multi-route pitches of up to 300 meters with a lot of bouldering areas. The area generally has an alpine landscape and peak of up to 2000 meters from the sea. The site is generally the best adventurous place to be and you will always have the best positive review about the scene. (posted by Nick)
