Today’s fun video: Sasquatches need park passes?

 

OLYMPIA -- The state Department of Natural Resources apparently thinks Sasquatches, like everyone else, need a Discover Pass if they want to spend any time in state parks or state lands.

The DNR is kicking out a whole line of public service announcements trying to boost sales of the passes, which so far have been underperforming revenue estimates. The spots feature a Sasquatch family. Possibly the worst-acting Sasquatch family in the history of movies, television or Internet videos. The other folks in the videos aren't likely to be starring in a Hollywood blockbuster any time soon, either.

From the videos we learn that Sasquatches take hula-hoops when they go camping, cram lots of junk into their car, like to ride dirt bikes and have questionable fashion sense. But they buy a Discover Pass, even if means going back to town after they get to the park and realize they forgot to get one before they home.

The real question: Where did the Sasquatch get the $35 to buy the Discover Pass?
