A Russian Journalist Keeps His Promise, Eats His Article
17.12.2012 16:34

Professionals occasionally promise to do something outrageous if they lose. Usually it is a promise to shave their heads, moustache, or beards. What if you promised something you'd rather not do but not doing which can tarnish your professional credibility?

      Vyacheslav Ledovsky is a journalist from Krasnoyarsk who published an article in 2010, expressing doubts that the construction of the fourth bridge over the Yenisei River would start before 2014. He promised to eat his article, should he be wrong. September 2012 saw the beginning of construction, and the journalist had to put his article where his mouth was. 

      The video documents the journalist eating the full article (cut in stripes and put in sour cream), ending with a final note: "Our country has no future unless we follow our promises, like "Man said - man did"". 

      In 2008 a Sports journalist had to eat his article when the ice hockey team he did not see winning suddenly topped the league. 

      In short, this is very inspiring to see people keeping true to their words.
