IT'S FRIDAY. How about renting a Zipcar and going on a day trip Madagascar? Just kidding . . . my Zipcar account is suspended (really). How about we just watch the video below (best in full screen) and dream of Madagascar. Imagine it: water as clear as the skies, sunsets that belong on an inspirational poster, a few friends: Irina Shayk, Jessica GomesChanel Iman and, because I want to get in on this fantasy too, hundreds of happy, bouncy lemurs.

It's a daydream we can all enjoy.
