For those of you who haven’t seen or heard about this video then fear not, we shall reveal all! It was recorded by 13 year old Jake Goodyear from Holloway in North London who was in Richmond Park with his dad at the time of the incident.
The man in the video has now been revealed. Father of two Max Findley was walking his black Labrador dog Fenton in the park when he suddenly bolted and ran after a herd of deer that were grazing in the park.
Young Jake was in the park with his dad Ali, last month when the incident happened and they recorded the whole thing and decided to put the video up on YouTube and within a couple of days the video was powering its way through the views and getting a lot of media attention.
In the video you see Mr. Findley’s dog chasing after the deer and the dog is closely followed by Mr. Findley himself alternately shouting “Fenton!” and “Oh, Jesus Christ!”. Then, despite Mr. Fenton’s furious attempts to try and stop his dog, the herd of frightened deer stampede across a busy road forcing cars to stop which leads to Mr. Findley swearing.
Mr. Findley was questioned about Fenton’s actions and said: “I don’t really want to add anything to the zillions of words already out there. I’d rather just leave the story where it is and move on.”
There are many videos on YouTube that are like this one, some have been produced by a video production company and don’t really do too well when it comes to turning viral. There are some good companies out there, like videotile.co.uk who can do both you and your company the world of good when it comes to producing a video. Whether that be to try and promote a product or service or whether that’s just to advertise your company.
