No, not a man with a stoat through his head. Instead, what appears to be an utterly gratuitious waste of time and money:
Yes, its a 5x. WTF? Presumably, these people really do have so much spare cash that they can create a new hull [update: more likely a converted coxed four; though rumour says that German quints exist] just for a video (though some of the shorts of the bow-bobble nearly going underwater suggest they may have got the shape a touch wrong [update: nope, that is probably them being pushed by the barge]). Thats assuming all this isn’t CGI, but I doubt it – some of the shots of them rowing are a bit flaky, though they have clearly had some coaching. But why the Olde Worlde blades?
Please dno’t tell me that 5-’s really exist. I enjoyed my little rant. Do watch the full video.

I’ve added a second pic from the video for those from the Blighted States:
A bit shonky I think you’ll agree but they aren’t being held in this section. Also updated 5- to 5x.
