Unicorn Climbing Fri Night Vid

© Artem Donskoy

This week's Friday Night Video has become something of an Instagram sensation in the online climbing sphere, attracting 35K views. Alex Megos shared the video in an Instagram story this week saying "Climbing needs more of this kind of thing!" 'Unicorn Climbing' by Russian climber Artem Donskoy does what it says on the tin: it's a music video of sorts featuring a climbing unicorn...

When asked about his motivations for making the video, Artem told UKC: "First I thought about a dinosaur suit but I saw the official video of JBDubs [in which a unicorn prances around NYC] and changed my mind. I'm very happy that people are enjoying this video and sharing positive vibes with each other. I expected that it might be popular but of course I didn't expect Alex to share it. But it was a pleasant surprise!"

HAHAHA extremely funny and great video. I am really impressed.

In all seriousness, this was a 0/10 and if you're amused by this, well, you got problems kid.

I assumed this was going to be another WideBoyz ascent of Masters Edge.

I thought it was great. Someone doing their own costume climbing parade!

In all seriousness, if you thought this was someone doing this seriously, and you weren't amused by this, well you've got no sense of humour.

Brilliant. I wonder if the Unicorn takes requests. Dancing, prancing and climbing to a variety of musical genres.

Also, is he or she sponsored? They were wearing Miura VS's so maybe a first for La Sportiva?

if this is climbing news then the barrel has well and truly been scraped....if a German thinks a Russian in a unicorn costume is the type of thing we need more of then I’m oot!
