The Dalai Lama Can’t Swim, Has No Desire to Surf

As you slide into weekend mode, spend 5 minutes watching this Dalai Lama interview clip from PTTOW! Summit 2011. At the invite-only conference, celebrities and business leaders gathered to talk shop, and His Holiness also happened to be there. He spoke to the crowd about his world views and then took questions from the audience. Surfer Kelly Slater decided to ask a unique question, avoiding the philosophical shop talk. Slater went straight to his forte around the 3:00 mark in the clip, asking if the Dalai Lama would be interested in catching some waves with him.

On a side note, Will.i.am did not get to ask his question to the Dalai Lama, but at least he tried.

PTTOW! and Kindling Media released a few other videos , including a 26-minute clip you can watch after the jump about brand reinvention with Chrysler head of marketing strategy and operations, George Neill. No word yet on whether he surfs.
