Michigan Man In The Hunt To Be Jungle Cruise Skipper For A Day

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some people want to be on American Idol, but a man in Ann Arbor, Michigan, would be happy just being a Jungle Cruise Skipper for a day.

Brodie Brockie is one of the finalists in a contest sponsored by the Disney Parks and that will award some lucky folks a chance to be a Jungle Cruise Skipper, a Pirate, a Princess-In-Training or a maid or butler at the Haunted Mansion for a whole day.

Brockie wants to captain the Jungle Cruise and in his application video, he tried to show he had the right stuff by staring down “a deadly panther” – actually his cat – and being sprayed by an elephant that looked amazingly like a shower nozzle.

Folks have until tomorrow (Mar. 30) to vote for the people they feel most deserve the job, and Brockie says he’s going ape waiting for the results.

If he does win, Brockie will try his hand at Jungle Cruise Skipper in June, and, although it will only be for one day, he admits that if park officials want to give him a full-time job, he’ll “listen to offers.”
