Petite Lap Giraffes: Real or DirecTV Marketing Campaign?

Sorry guys, as cute as they are, the petite lap giraffe just doesn’t exist in our realm.

We know, we know. But you’ve SEEN them. You’ve seen them on a live feed at You’ve seen them in HOT TUBS.


We did too. But let’s do a little research here. The Russian Petite Lap Giraffes featured on can be traced back to a marketing group: Grey Global Group, which we’re guessing has some kind of connection to DirecTV.

Sorry to kill your dreams of owning a real life petite lap giraffe, but our curiosity got the best of us.

However, if you are still holding out hope, you can put your name on a waiting list of 300,000+ to get one, by clicking the “I Want Giraffe” button on the site.

We clicked it, you know, just in case.
