The original footage was taken from a National Geographic special.

Later on Roger Ver, the former CEO of Memorydealers a computer-parts reseller that in 2011 became the first company to accept bitcoins, places a billboard located about half a mile from Memorydealers (between the El Camino Real and Highway 101). This billboard shows the honey badger and Bitcoin.
