Bicycles are toys! Cars are for transportation!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Everyone loves watching Danny MacAskill ride.  He’s ridiculous.  A recent VW ad has him doing his thing in various public places: stairs, a bridge, public art, and one of those serenity now (insanity later) water monuments.  Then, instead of riding home on his bicycle, which is in fact a conveyance, he puts it in the trunk of his VW stationwagon.  The message seems pretty clear: bicycles are fun things to play on, but real people transport themselves in cars.

I’m not anti-car, but this bugs me.
