Throwback advertising: absurd old-school drift boat sales video

The old Lavro drift boat video I stumbled on via YouTube had me in stitches this past weekend and had to share. The upload date says 2009, but I’m pretty sure it was filmed way before then. Now, don’t get me wrong, Lavro made some really cool boats back in the day — especially some of their whitewater stuff but this “commercial” is making it seem like fiberglass is some space-aged wonder material.

Sit back, grab a beer, maybe some popcorn and enjoy a full seven and a half minutes of super cheesy music, crappy slow motion, fish handling from hell, absurd rowing lines, more insane launches, and stress tests with sledgehammers and rocks.

It’s hilarious. Enjoy
