What a hero! Glad he gets this recognition. Also he rolled with it and stayed in character.
Dude, you cut out the best part!

What I really want to know is why the alligator was just chilling with some random, unattended kid in the first place. Post theories below.
Fuck us for praising someone doing their job well right?
Would you have been able to tell that while wearing that suit?
Albert that really hurt.
Sorry no gif
In the original he plays dead and the kid give him cpr. So cute
Have you ever seen the rain?

What a hero, are the exact words that came out of my mouth when I saw that.
Probably got his cue from the player in the direction that the guy was looking.
How on earth did he see so well through that thing
