Same here. The ending is sooo cool and the music is just right. Makes me want to drag out the road bike and go for a 1 or 2 hundred mile ride

Great video!

Only thing wrong is that it's in support of Nike. The last scene is cool until you realize that Nike supports kids making their shoes for pennies rather than what they try to portray in their commercials.

Too bad they don't sell Nike shoes at WalMart. You guys could really get yourselves all twisted up.

Great imagery, sound, music - very nice! The ending is very cool too... The thing that struck me is I can't believe the USPS is throwing away all that great publicity! How many times did we see the Postal logo in that spot? lol

Hmm... I just noticed that particular Nike website for the new ad has the old Sun logo as its shortcut icon/mini-icon/favicon. Neat.

I ripped the video off the flash site. If you guys want the video, either IM me or find a place where I can stash about 18-19 meg of video.

yeah i would like to download that commercial too. btw, my friend told me about a commerical that lance did a couple years back. i think it was during the time when people couldn't believe how he almost died and could win tour de france without being on drugs. anyone know of that commercial? i heard his reply in that commercial was: "on drugs? the only thing i'm on is on my bike busting my ass 6 hrs a day." i heard that was some powerful moments. if anyone know where i can get that commercial, i would like to see that one!

Hey, what's with the chin strap swinging away?

From BHSI: * The chin strap should be snug against the chin so that when you open your mouth very wide you feel the helmet pull down a little bit.
