Beat It Drake, This Giant Panda Is Toronto’s Newest Star

+

Toronto’s headline game has been strong as of late. With Drake as its global ambassador, Rob Ford as its global embarrassment, and Jian Ghomeshi as its global villain, Canada’s largest city has had a very clickworthy 2014. And now, thanks to some surveillance courtesy of the Toronto Zoo, the city now has its global mascot. Meet Da Mao, a six-year-old Giant Panda who is already one of the zoo’s biggest attractions, and whose star is likely to skyrocket thanks to this footage of him having the best time ever flopping around in the snow and tumbling down a hill like the cuddly endangered species he is.
