Just Another Day on the Farm. Goat Rides Horse in Newfoundland & Labrador Tourism Ad

Newfoundland & Labrador Tourism Ad - Goat Riding Horse

As anyone who’s fallen down the rabbit hole of YouTube animal videos can attest, little goats like to climb up onto things, and it’s hella cute watching them do it. (does anyone still say the word ‘hella’ anymore? So, when the crew filming Newfoundland & Labrador Tourism commercials spotted the unlikely duo near Cape St. Mary’s Ecological Reserve, they just had to capture the moment.

In response to what must have been a doubting YouTube commenter, a spokesperson for Newfoundland & Labrador Tourism said:

“While we appreciate that this seems like an unlikely situation, there are actually four goats on this farm, and they all ride the horse. The owner of the animals assures us this is a regular occurrence. When the horse lies down, the goats climb on his back, and then the horse stands up. Our video captures the rest.”

Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism Release Spectacular New TV Spots

Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism - Iceberg AlleyNewfoundland and Labrador is without a doubt one of the most visually spectacular places on earth. Two new ads from Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism showcase that rugged beauty of just a few of the 29,000 kilometers of coastline for all to see and become enchanted by.

The first ad, ‘Iceberg Alley’ (embedded above) was shot at various spots around the Change Islands where enormous icebergs are a common yet spectacular site. The second ad ‘Secret Place’ was shot at Mistaken Point Ecological Reserve on the southern Avalon Peninsula, where fossils from 565 million years ago have been found within the rugged rocks.

The two ads were created by St. John’s-based Target Marketing, and directed by Alar Kivilo of Sons & Daughters. Kivilo is no stranger to Newfoundland and Labrador, having previously directed the ‘Viking‘ and ‘Ancient Land‘ ads.
