This incredible story starts out on the African savanna.
Where one man stands, looking rather dapper in his suit.
The man starts calling out for someone…or something.
Wait, is that a lion?
That’s one brave man right there.
But his bravery is rewarded with an epic lion hug.
And a sweet lion kiss.
Even a lion cuddle. The best kind of cuddle.
Enough spooning, it’s time to play!
The reason why Kevin Richardson is wearing that fancy suit and playing soccer with those majestic lions is that it’s an ad for Dutch suit maker Van Gils, who are also an official sponsor of the Dutch national football team, KNVB.
The 40-year-old has dedicated his career to working with lions and the video was shot at his animal sanctuary in his native South Africa.
