I like that he apologizes for using portrait.

It has been a long, hard winter here in the Syracuse area. Do not judge us too harshly.

"I just realized I should have been filming this horizontally, I'm sorry."

It was worth it just for this comment. Someone who finally admits the error of their video recording ways. I accept your apology sir.

That's a lot of a-llama in his voice. Settle down, sir; it's OK if you don't have food.

This seems like it should be the start of the plot for the next Hangover movie.

The llamapocalypse of last month was just a taste of what's coming. Prepare for the New Wool Order.

There's a lot of infomation missing. What happened to the goat and the llama? Where did they come from?

Definitely not stock. Probably a custom chevre.

Now if that llama had been an elk, I would've started worrying.

I can't find any online bits of "Lorenzo the Llama" but on the Sirius kid's station, he's hilarious. He answers the phone and messes with the kids, sternly telling them NO TOUCHING THE LLAMA. He sounds a little like your drunk uncle.

Or: Oh my God, there's a fucking llama... it goes on forever... and -- oh my God! -- It's full of stars!

I want to know what happened!! Did the goat and llama get home ok?

Also that llama had a really elegant gait. Do all llamas have that?

Ha ha, this is terrific! I hope the goat and his llama buddy are ok, the dude seems like a good dude so I'm sure he tried to sort something out.

Long setup for the portrait mode lament punchline is all that's happening here.
posted by Abon Sapi at 4:30 PM on March 26, 2015

in summary: they got home OK. he herded them by waving his arms around

Has anybody here seen "Wild", with Reese Witherspoon? Because, (spoiler alert):



...there's a critical scene in that movie that involves the unexpected coming upon of a llama in a weirdly out -of-context-for-llamas place. And that's based on a true story, so I assume the llama thing really happened. And now this. So I guess my question is, are llamas always functioning as weird spiritual harbingers, or is that just a media myth?

When I was visiting Universal Studios last year, I was in the little open-air tram thing that drive around the back lot to see all the facades and props from old films, and suddenly a random deer walked across the lot in front of us. The tour guide was all, "So over here we have the scene from Jaws, and you'll notice... no, that's just a deer. It just probably lives around here. No it's not a FAMOUS deer. Stop taking photos of the deer, people! There are Steven Spielberg props on your left right now. The deer is unimportant."

I'm pretty sure there are about 50 videos from that day that look a lot like this guy's one, but feature a deer instead of a goat.

That goat is super friendly. And pretty.

Oh, I've probably told this before, but my favorite llama story, probably from one of the riding magazines I used to read, told of the disastrous attempt to introduce llamas to a group of pack horses on a trip. Apparently if they're not already used to llamas, your formerly-calm horse might be all NOOO WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT, NOT A HORSE, WHAT THE FUCK, GET ME OUT OF HERE.
