This ad makes me laugh. I love the yaks in high-fashion saddles. Who thought up this ad? Seriously, it is just so weird! It makes me wonder if you can really buy a yak saddle from Hermes. And if you can, why do they make such a thing? There can’t possibly be that much demand for overpriced, fancy yak saddles! I mean, it’s pretty, but it’s for a yak, not an thoroughbred horse! Even the one in the ad doesn’t look especially cooperative (of course, it’s probably wondering what kind of idiot tries to lead a yak around in the snowy mountains wearing a cashmere skirt and high-heels). I like this ad, though. It’s quirky and strange in kind of a fun way. It makes absolutely no sense, but it’s fun to look at!
