In May of 2013, Gondola Adventures provided an authentic Venetian gondola for a still photo shoot in Malibu.  The gondola was photographed crashing into a mansion, complete with a smoke machine and a live leopard on top.  Gondola, custom-striped oar, striped poles, and gondolier's hat were provided by Gondola Adventures.

 

The ad was for Louis Leeman men's footwear, and can be seen online or in upscale magazines.
