DNR recruits Sasquatch to promote Discover Pass

Did you know that Sasquatch drives a truck? And rides a motorbike? And he takes his whole family camping and kayaking? It’s true. I saw it on the Internet, so it must be true.

The state Department of Natural Resources has launched a series of videos featuring a Sasquatch family using a Discover Pass. The agency is trying to playfully remind people that they need the pass to use recreation lands managed by the state.

The video above is just one of a series of five. The whole thing is campy and silly, but still rather fun. The best part is the bored clerk who sells the pass without even noticing his customer is 8 feet tall and covered in fur.

Check out the DNR’s info on the Discover Pass here.
