    Is that really him or it's just an avatar he uses? There is a link there to http://cycleoxford.coop/. I'm confused as to what's the meaning of this video

    Oh ROFLMAO!!!!! No, I have never seen this one! OK, things make sense now. But he does look like John Cleese on that screenshot. Well, close enough I guess I have some catching up to do!

    Amazingly yes, in this video John Cleese looks remarkably like John Cleese and Michael Palin clearly resembles Michael Palin. :-)

    And before we get to that, the tall blonde guy is Graham Chapman and the one whose bike breaks is Terry Jones :-)

    Don't know who the other blonde guy is.

    I guess that I'll just have to wait for somebody to explain it to me. I don't have the attention span.
