You're right, not a bad article, but I find the overall presentation a tad tryhard. Not all fixie aficionados are students/couriers/urban webels.

I imagined a bunch of baby boomer advertising department doods sitting around a story board, working out how to get the youf of today to buy more product. Or maybe they are one-upping the Lance Nike ads??????

that is seriously idiotic!

ASFAIK most messengers couldnt/wouldnt afford a SUV piece-o-sheet and most SUV potential buyers dont wanna be like couriers. they just want them outta the way :rolleyes:

After many years in advertsising I'll bet my teeth no 'creatives' were involved in that. It was all the 'suits*'.
This species are mostly as dumb as the eediots you see on 'The Apprentice'.


*who werent named after large, mean 'horny' animals :D

The "Squid" on the Adrants page who is going to sue the car advertiser for using his name wouldn't be the "Squid" who has sold himself to Puma, eh?

And I'm not too sure how he would go suing the car advertiser anyway. I couldn't sue if some advertiser said that some cyclists in Perth have names like 'Steve', could I?

If you wanted couriers to endorse anything, what products would you choose?

Um...

Um...

Um...bike stuff

And um....clothing for the yoof market..

And some music...

And the drinking of beer (not a particular brand, just the general concept of drinking it)

Steve(hey, let's get some vegetarians into this advert for a steak-house)A
