According to sources, the rabbit that famously evaded an avalanche in Kamchatka last winter has yet to secure a sponsorship deal for 2015/16.

“Its been tough", said Vasily Karrotof, who featured in the edit that went viral earlier this year and was picked up by news platforms across the globe. “I did a world-first trick, got tons of mainstream coverage, and there still haven't been any deals on the table."

The lack of pre-season interest marks another blow to Karrotof's career, following the cancellation of his flow deal with the Knowbunnys team back in August.
