I'm not even sure how to make fun of this...

I just got this press release:

If you missed Twiggy, the water-skiing squirrel, when he last visited Colorado Springs, you will have another chance to see him on Saturday Oct. 20.
Twiggy will be featured at the grand opening celebration for Integrity Bank’s third branch at 13475 Voyager Parkway, southeast of Voyager Parkway and North Gate Boulevard.
The squirrel, which drew a crowd of more than 1,000 at another Integrity branch opening in 2005, is scheduled to perform at 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and noon.

Oh, just as an ironic aside, the guy who trained twiggy, and toured around with him talking to kids about water skiing safety, drowned in a boating accident.

A water-skiing squirrel for a bank opening? Who are the ad wizards that came up with this campaign? What's next, a snowboarding pine marten?

He also, apparently, speaks French.

We could outfit Twiggy in a Patagonia sock and when a trip to Vietnam.

If you like his waterskiing you should see that rodent wakeboard!

After the show he is free to come dig up your garden in a nut planting frenzy.
