And we thought the Most Interesting Man in the World was in his Moscow office while waiting for the NBA Board of Governors to approve his bid for the Nets!  Oh No. Instead, Mikhail Prokhorov was on vacation...riding the waves...on his jet ski...off the Maldives...in the Indian Ocean.  Of course he was.  And he had his personal video crew shoot it, edit it, set it to music and post it on RuTube, the Russian version of YouTube. Of course he did.

"My holidays have stood out loud...closing the deal to acquire the NBA team," he wrote on his blog. "But I did manage to tear out a few days in the Maldives.  During this time there were ever big waves, up to  5 meters...Feelings were very sharp, especially when you get into a ridge and it turns you for 15-20 seconds. Actually, sometimes it was very frightening."  He calls the video "On the Crest of a Wave".

Okay, we admit it, we're speechless.
