Weekend Laugh: Skating the Streets of South Asia

They had us at skateboarding across South Asia. In perhaps one of the quirkiest yet coolest travel videos you will ever see, the team over at Visualtraveling twist and turn through the crowded, curvy streets of India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. If you ever told us we’d be transfixed enough to sit through ten minutes of skateboarding, we’d wonder just who may have spiked your lassi. But the action is sleek and the visuals mesmerizing. It may not be the kind of laugh we typically serve up each weekend, but we’ll be damned if “Holy Cow” doesn’t make you smile (or book a flight to South Asia tomorrow). And did we mention the soundtrack? Kicking things off with a little Kishore Kumar-Lata Mangeshkar duet of yore (“Naino Mein Sapna”)…we’re sold.
