There's a highly compressed imagery advertisement for Kaiser Permanente (HMO group in some states). It shows rapid-fire images of an idealized future (e.g. cure of obesity). The last image shows a six-lane freeway (3 each way) completely occupied by bycyclists! A lot like a moving version of that poster that pops up in these forums. Very cool, but brief.

Edit --

Saw it again. Shows (from memory)

Man reading newspaper with article "Obesity Remembered"
Drive in offering "Mini-Size" menu
Vending machine with fruit
6 Lanes of bikers

Yeah, loved it... that that was so cool. I missed the very beginning of the one I saw, but got the point and really loved the bike freeway part!

We were watching TV the other day and saw the commercial go by quickly. I wasn't sure of what it was, so I asked my husband (who had the remote) to rewind. When he paused the commercial at all the bicycles on the freeway, I exclaimed, "Yes, Yes!!"

I love Kaiser Permanente's vision of the future.

Haven't seen it yet, but it makes me glad I'm a Kaiser member. I get great healthcare, they helped me stop smoking, and delivered 2 of my kids. Now if they would only put in a bike rack outside.
