    It's kind of a reverse recycling advert! I don't know if that makes it anti-recycling, or anti-Dahon, or both?!

    Smirnoff advertising which appeared in London.
    Dahon sued them and won, partly because Dahon could proof that they use recycled products and Smirnoff did not.... It went somehow very sour for smirnoff and Dahon came out of it like a shining star...

    thats how i remembered it anyhow....

    I like CrimsonEclipse's theory. As a multi-mode commuter, if I saw a folder in an ad, I'd definitely read it. That one made me laugh - and humour lowers barriers. Good ad.

    Should be a picture of some horrid gas guzzling alu car like a landrover or audi a8. I keyed an suv the other week when drunk. Not proud but the result was quite pretty.

    [EDIT] To those below this offended by my actions I can but only apologise. It wasn't big or clever of me. We've all done the odd thing we aren't proud of though aren't we? Aren't we? Hopefully this comment hasn't given me social leprosy in this forum...]

    I just hope the SUV driver doesn't jump on your wheels next time you lock your bike up, also not pretty, & pretty frigging difficult to ride home afterwards! Sorry, not impressed! If you feel the need for vandalism when drunk, don't drink!

    I guess I've been living abroad too long. I'm not really up on the lingo. What exactly does 'keyed' mean?

    Keyed is a type of vandalism where someone takes a key and scribes a mark along something usually a car and through its paint. If someone did that to my car, bike or truck they better never hope I catch them. This is downright disgusting behavior. Some finishes on cars would require repainting vast areas of the car or possibly the entire car. This is absolutely atrocious behavior and is inexcusable. If someone has a problem with someone else there are other ways to handle it. Would you like some to scratch a nice big mark in your bike? Do this to some people's cars where I have lived and you would be found floating face up in the local river.
