Animal instinct

I've been meaning to look up this three-decade-old video ever since I heard about it, but kept forgetting. Finally, I remembered yesterday and it turned out to be worth every bit of the hype associated with it.

#Tejal,
Hahaha! EKta Kapoor ka serial hota toh lion would have touched the feet of both guys and they would have shown flashback of how he was their son in his previous life. :P

#Inder,
Hehehehe! :P

#Iyer-the-gr8,
Thanks. :)

#Mythalez,
Me neither! :)

#Starbreez,
It was almost a 'mauling'. That 'hug' could topple you and me over! :P

#Prats,

Apun ko bhi yeh forward aaya tha.. But it did not include the part where the lioness is also not attacking anyone.. Ekdum aagyakaari pati parmeshwar types na.. :D

Heheh nothing related to the post. Just wondering if Viv sings the song "Sun Sayesha Sun" for you (Spoof of "Sun Saheba Sun" from Ram Teri Ganga Maili)

Will let you know when I get to see the movie clip.

Never saw this before. I assumed it is another internet hoax until I verified in Snopes.

Now, it's veracity validated, I proceed to be truly amazed.
