Cycling Sucks!

As they say…”Cars run on money and make you fat. Bicycles run on fat and save you money.”

Here’s a student-created, imaginative take on a few reasons why bikes…don’t suck, but cars do.

At the bottom, you’ll find a few more reasons why we here at elephant love bicycles.

This is the first of two commercials we created for a student project, in order to promote the bicycle. The assignment was to make a tv-commercial about a bicycle, with a max duration of 60 seconds.

At the beginning, the ‘cop’ says, “Well sir, how fast have we been driving?”. The sentence at the end means something like “Cycling is annoying, isn’t it?”.
