Travel Video of the Week: Costa Rican Animals Want to Save the Americans


Kudos to the Costa Rican Tourism Board for creating this hilarious video of their jungle animals (sloth, turtles, toucans and parrots) singing the tune “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.”

The campaign was inspired by the 2013 Expedia Vacation Deprivation survey, which found that Americans leave more than 500,000,000 vacations days unused each year. The Costa Rican Tourism Board claims the problem is real and that the American worker is forced to work long hours in stressful environments, increasingly estranged from their natural habitat and grows more endangered every day.

Here’s the website if you or someone you know is endangered.
