A DESTINATION.

AND WHAT THEY NEEDEDWAS A STAR ANIMAL.

THE PLAN:TO CREATE A HERO PIG

BY STAGING A VIRAL VIDEO

IN WHICH HE RESCUES A BABY GOATFROM DROWNING.

- OH, OKAY.

- SO I THINKIF YOU HAD A VIDEO LIKE THAT,

PEOPLE WOULD COME FROM PLACESAS FOREIGN AS JAPAN,

AND EVEN MORE FOREIGNLIKE CHINA,

JUST TO SEE YOUR HERO PIG.

- THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

- THE FIRST STEPWAS PICKING OUR ANIMALS.

VINCE WOULD BE OUR HERO PIG,

AND GANGSTER THE GOATWOULD BE OUR VICTIM.

THE ZOO HADA LARGE TROUT POND,

SO THIS WOULD BE THE SETTINGFOR OUR RESCUE.

BUT WHEN I BROUGHT VINCENEAR THE WATER,

I REALIZEDHE WAS AN INCREDIBLE COWARD.

[Vince squealing]OKAY, OKAY!

OKAY, OKAY, OKAY!- NO, NO, NO, NO!

- SO WE HIREDSOME ANIMAL HANDLERS

TO BRING INA PROFESSIONAL MOVIE PIG

THAT LOOKED IDENTICALTO VINCE.

THE QUESTION NOW WASHOW DO WE GET A PIG

TO RESCUE A GOAT ON CAMERA?

ANSWER?YOU CAN'T.

SO I DECIDED TO HAVETWO SCUBA DIVERS

SECRETLY SUBMERGEDBENEATH THE ANIMALS

GUIDING THE PIGTOWARDS THE GOAT

TO MAKE IT LOOKLIKE A REAL RESCUE.

DURINGTHE FIRST COUPLE ATTEMPTS,

THE PIG KEPT SLIPPINGOUT OF THE DIVERS' HANDS.

SO WE DECIDED TO BUILDAN UNDERWATER TRACK

OUT OF PVC TO GUIDE THE PIG

LIKE A BOWLING BALLGOING DOWN A BUMPER LANE.

THIS WORKED A LOT BETTER,

AND I WAS HOPEFUL IT WOULDFOOL THE INTERNET AUDIENCE

INTO BELIEVINGTHIS VIDEO WAS REAL.

BUT AS THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLEINVOLVED BEGAN TO GROW,

INCLUDING ANIMAL TRAINERS,STUNTMEN,

AND HUMANE SOCIETY REPS,I STARTED TO GET WORRIED.

AFTER ALL, WORD COULDN'T GET OUTTHAT THIS WAS FAKE

OR IT WOULD BEA DISASTROUS SCANDAL

FOR OAK GLEN.

SO I ASKED EVERYONE ON SET TOSIGN NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENTS

STATING THAT THEY SWORENOT TO TELL ANYONE

THE RESCUE WAS FAKE

OR ELSE THEY WOULD FACETHE DEATH PENALTY.

EVEN THOUGH MY LAWYER SAIDTHE DEATH PENALTY CLAUSE

WAS NOT ENFORCEABLE,

I STILL WANTEDTO LEAVE IT IN THERE

SO PEOPLE KNEWHOW SERIOUS I WAS.

AFTER SEVERAL FAILED ATTEMPTS,

WE FINALLY GOTTHE RESCUE ON TAPE.
