The 2014 FIFA World Cup 2014 is just around the corner, and everyone around the world is going football crazy. But forget the 32 national teams Kevin Richardson has confronted the toughest competition of the year in a match of football, a group of lions that were wild! No wonder they call him the Lion Whisperer.
This unbelievable storyline starts out on the African savanna.
Where one guy stands, looking quite dapper in his suit.
The guy begins calling out for someone…or something.
Wait, is that a lion?
That”s one courageous guy right there.
But his bravery is rewarded with a heroic lion hug.
And a pleasant lion kiss.
A lion cuddle. The finest sort of cuddle.
Enough spooning, it”s time to play!
The reason Kevin Richardson is wearing that elaborate suit and playing soccer with those regal lions is that it”s an advertisement for Dutch suit maker Van Gils, who are also an official patron of the Dutch national football team, KNVB. You can see the unbelievable footage in all its glory here under: The 40-year old has dedicated his career to working with lions and the video was shot at his animal sanctuary in his native South Africa.
