Man In Gorilla Suit Chasing Astronauts Aboard The International Space Station

gorilla-aboard-space-station.jpg

Because I'm convinced they're not doing anything but partying up there, this is a video of Scott Kelly dressed in a gorilla suit chasing his colleagues aboard the International Space Station. It's weird to think somebody loading up a container for shipment to the space station had to check 'Gorilla Suit' off a list. Clearly they're doing important work up there. Would you spend a year aboard the space station? I'd like to think I could do it, but in reality I'm way too claustrophobic. I give myself maybe three days before I jettisoned myself out an airlock and became a piece of organic space debris. God willing, I'd become a famous attraction when space tourism really takes off and visitors will spacewalk to rub my penis for good luck.

Keep going for two videos, a longer version from Facebook with Bennie Hill music, and a shorter Youtube version.

Needed a little humor to lighten up a #YearInSpace. Go big, or go home. I think I'll do both! #SpaceApe

Thanks to n0nentity and Amber, neither of whom are convinced the International Space Station is nothing more than a Hollywood hoax designed to give humans hope that our species will survive when an asteroid hits the planet in 2021, which I have predicted using an ancient Mayan Calendar. "That's a coloring book." It's an ancient calendar!

    It's all fun and games until you realize as you're running, you've accounted for the whole crew already, yet someone is still in the suit...

    I hope whoever thought of this idea was thrown out of the window of a high rise.

  • "OPEN THE ************* POD BAY DOORS, HAL!!!"

  • According to NASA, taking a 4.3 lbs gorilla suit into space = $43,000 taken from the tax payers. Is this dumb video worth $43,000? No it is not.

    I have no issue with people voluntarily funding NASA. We donate as much as we can, and encourage others to donate too if they find it as valuable as we do. I DO take issue with FORCING people to pay NASA. We have no moral right to take money from people with the threat of violence in order to pay for things our ruling class deems worthy.

    I believe the astronauts are allowed a certain weight of "personal" stuff to bring, that is entirely up to them as to what (within reasonable limits of course, to ensure safety).

    So I applaud the astronaut that thought "fuck it, I'm bringing a gorilla suit!"

    On the other hand, I can see this totally being a lost bet... like back on Earth whoever lost the wager had to give up their personal items and bring the most absurd, useless thing the other(s) could think of... cue the gorilla suit.

  • MustacheHam

    This is bananas. haha. :D

  • Andy Green

    Who approved this stupid idea? It should have been an Giger Alien outfit!

  • larry cornwater

    It costs how many thousands of dollars per pound to get to space? C'mon, NASA. Science only. No fun. Ever. Be more like the Russians.

    They were probably all toking out of the ISB before this video was filmed.

    Was about to post the same thing $10,000 / pound, to be exact. That's the most expensive gorilla suit ever made. They better get some publicity out of it, and send it back to earth in some scrap metal, Planet Of the Apes style.
