Hat tip and thanks to David Zinger for pointing us at this video. Bear with it: I found the first thirty seconds disturbingly misogynistic: especially the first scene outside the vegetable store, and I was going to stop watching it, as his aggression seems particularly levelled at women and that was creepy. But, the punchline at the end is cool and I THINK makes the creepy bits understandable and acceptable (do contradict me if you think not, though: I'm in two minds).

Leader learning point? Well, if there has to be one, it's look to turn a threat or problem into an opportunity. But, honestly, it's just a bit of fun to help re-energize you with the power of surprise.
