There is just something really, really wrong with this video.

GoDaddy CEO Cecil Rhodes- I mean, Bob Parsons, is the new Great White Hunter. He has successfully saved an African village from a terrible, awful elephant that was allegedly destroying their crops, like, every day.

In all fairness to Parsons, the villagers did ask him to help them out, but what's with the video? Like this shot:

Was this really necessary? What's the moral here- you kill one elephant for fun, give it to a village, throw some GoDaddy.com hats on some people and blast the AC-DC?

Evidently the smell of the rotting carcass in the hot African sun drew many more villagers to the site, and "Mayhem Ensued". Does anyone else feel uncomfortable when they watch this? Shades of an Imperialist past I guess.
