Wait for it…around second :40
A millionaire hotel owner was left red-faced after his jet-ski stunt – devised to add sparkle to the opening of his latest property – ended with an embarrassing spill.
Petter Stordalen – once described as the “flashiest Scandinavian on the planet” – sought to live up to his nickname at the inauguration of the waterfront Clarion Hotel & Congress in Malmo. He arrived at the ceremony by powerboat and then – under the gaze of thousands of onlookers – jumped on to a jet ski for the grand entrance.
Wearing Bond-like attire, he pulled off a couple of “doughnut” manoeuvres before speeding off to greet the adoring crowd. His dismount didn’t go according to plan, however, and Stordalen ended up tumbling hard onto a flight on concrete stairs – probably leaving his back, and his pride, a little bruised.
