I can’t even begin to say how much I love this short film “Marry Me?” I came across it last week on Copenhagen Cycle Chic, and after passing it around to all of my friends, I still haven’t gotten tired of it. As a friend pointed out, it’s “a great testament to the patient power of girls and shortsighted stupidity of boys.”

Or, as I say, “what would you choose, the bike or the boy?”

    …moral of the story: avoid boys with mullets.

    I have to disagree a little with you. First, you are right on your point, no doubt about the chauvinism under the lines but I am disappointed more with the feeling that woman, in general, is more willing to modify herself, her habits and desires to "change" man and then receive a prize for that…a good relationship, in matter of fact no one change others, people don't change, we are what we are and one day it shows. Even when she choose to live the boy and go one with her bike, she spent a lot of time and energy trying to change his mind showing that if he change hiss mind he couldn't do the jump. I trully believe that we, man or woman, only "jump" for ourselves, for our own experience.
