Dreamed I caught a ride on a giant pachyderrm. It was white rather than grey, with fine (for a pachyderm) hair just long enough to grab onto. The amazing thing about it was how smooth and fast it could run. We cruised through the Serengheti at what must have been 70mph, and there was hardly a bump in the ride, like that old commercial where they moyle performs a circumcision in the back seat of an El Dorado or whatever. The beast was gigantic – I was 20 feet off the ground sitting on the back of its neck, so the view was spectacular at that speed. It was hot and the air blew through my hair as fast as we ran. There was a winding dirt and sand road that snaked through the desert for miles on end and this was our course. The only hard part was going over walls – the pachy would sort of go sideways-backwards and would shift all over the place – hard to hold on.

Wasn’t that El Dorado commercial a SNL skit? I know they did one on that, so maybe what I saw a long time ago was a parody of what you’re refering to?
Man, I wish I had interesting dreams (remembered them).
Yes! SNL, reality, who can tell the difference anymore?
SNL Goes Commercial. That was where I saw it, I think I was between 7 and 9 when I watched it for the first time. Absolutly hilarious. Some of my fav. (haven’t seen it in a looong time, but I remember these): colon blow, big red, a message from the almighty god… oh, who am I kidding, they’re all good, but those are the “products” that I most easily remember.
Oh, and El Dorado, that’s one smooth ride.
