The legendary Playboy Mansion has seen more than it’s share of action over the years, and trials biker Danny MacAskill has thrilled millions with his videos, so it was only natural the two came together for a clip sure to put a new meaning to the term “Bunny Hop.”
While recently in Los Angeles on the heels of his dramatic riding film “Epecuen,” MacAskill was surprised with the opportunity to lighten things up a bit and take his skills to the fabled home to Playboy and Hugh Hefner. With more than six acres of land to roam (and not to mention numerous creatures; human and animal playing about), it was certainly a new experience for the masterful rider more used to balancing on treacherous ledges than entertaining a pool full of giggling beauties by riding atop the infamous Grotto.
While the usually shy MacAskill admitted he was a bit distracted by the “scenery,” he left knowing it will be an experience he’ll talk about for years to come. “It was a surreal experience, definitely something I can look back on in 20 years’ time and laugh about.
