PORTAGE la PRAIRIE, MB –
Just days after releasing a video on Vanity Fair on Canadian slang, Will Arnett attempted to drive the “150 clicks” from Winnipeg to Portage la Prairie he mentioned in the video to visit relatives.
Family reported the Toronto born star missing the following day when he failed to show up at Splash Island for a family gathering and pool party.
“We rented the pool for the afternoon and was expecting Will to show up at noon,” Arnett’s Aunt Molly said. “Will loves Island Park so we got worried when he didn’t show up.”
Police managed to locate Arnett in the parking lot of the Sand Hills Casino just south of Carberry Manitoba.
“It would appear Mr. Arnett set his cruise control just outside of Headingley and was expecting to drive 150 kilometers to Portage when the actual distance is about 70 kilometers,” Police spokesperson Brenda Walby said. “He became distracted and didn’t see the exit signs to Portage la Prairie and proceeded to the Carberry turn off. He indicated he followed signs to a casino and spent the next several days there where we found him in his rented vehicle sleeping. Several locals recognized him as someone who might be on TV and contacted police after he hung around the parking lot for a couple of days asking where the water slides were.”
Arnett was taken to hospital for observation and autographs and was then returned to his family gathering on Island Park in Portage la Prairie.
“We bought Will a day pass to Splash Island, so he was very happy,” his Aunt Molly said. “Will’s parents are from Winnipeg but Will grew up in Toronto so it only makes sense he would get lost in the wilds of Manitoba”
Arnett will be spending the next few days enjoying local tourist attractions like Delta Beach on Lake Manitoba, several walking trails and the Portage la Prairie Mall.
