If you're going to be riding any animal when you drop your GoPro attached to a selfie stick, it's good to be riding an elephant.
We can't get inside this elephant's thoughts; if we could, there would have been a reality show called Elephant Mind by now. That probably would have been followed by the fictional spinoff Elephant Mind, Esq., about an elephant that becomes New York City's most prominent lawyer by projecting his thoughts into people's heads (tagline: "This pachyderm figured out law... but has he figured out love?") And then the elephant would probably decide that he wanted to do comedy and star in a sitcom called ElePants about a single dad elephant who was also a big-and-tall pants designer.
Anyway, my point is this: we can't be totally sure that this elephant is judging this guy for using a selfie stick while riding a goddamn elephant. In fact, it could even be that the author of this write up is the one judging the guy for using a selfie stick while riding a goddamn elephant. Although, to be fair, of all the dumb uses for a selfie stick I've ever seen, this is the most OK. So it's probably the elephant judging him, and not me. Yup.
