Video: Danny MacAskill visits the Playboy Mansion

Adding a new meaning to the term "Bunny Hop"

The legendary Playboy Mansion has seen more than its share of action over the years, and trials biker Danny MacAskill has thrilled millions with his videos, so it was only natural the two came together for a clip sure to put a new meaning to the term “Bunny Hop.” While recently in Los Angeles on the heels of his dramatic film “Epecuén,” MacAskill was surprised with the opportunity to lighten things up a bit and take his skills to the fabled home of Playboy and Hugh Hefner.

With more than six acres of land to roam, it was certainly a new experience for the masterful rider—who is more accustomed to balancing on treacherous ledges than entertaining a pool full of giggling Playmates—to ride atop the infamous Grotto.

While the usually shy MacAskill admitted he was a bit distracted by the “scenery,” he left knowing it will be an experience he’ll talk about for years to come.

“It was a surreal experience, definitely something I can look back on in 20 years’ time and laugh about,” he said.
