Arena's coverage of the Sydney Leather Pride float at Mardi Gras

This is Arena TV's coverage of the Sydney Leather Pride float at Mardi Gras. He's only in the background, but you can see Rattus in there too. It's a shame that this is the first Mardi Gras with me in it that I've been able to get a recording of, but we furries missed out on having our own float.

My favourite video of the Sydney Leather Pride float, which I think shows me in my best light, has been made private on YouTube, but luckily I did snatch a download of it before it was too late. I wonder if I would get away with reuploading it?

This was all broadcast live so they wouldn't have had much opportunity to cut me out of the shooting. I think it was more a case of a camera operator more interested in the look of leather on well-honed bodies which, considering the theme of the float, is understandable. I was very sorry there was no furry float to shake my tail at instead, and I'm sure we would have been given a fair go if there were, with only a few off-colour jokes by the inane commentators. Some floats got cut out altogether, so I'm not complaining. At least they shot on the side I happened to be on.

Spare a thought for poor master_flea, who was hung upside down on the truck for most of the parade, but barely shows up in the footage at all. As hard as it was doing the parade on foot in full fursuit, I have nothing to complain about.

You're not just in the background, you're also at 1:01 very very briefly in a close pan of the truck. I think you stood out in this video just fine.
