I like the one of the guy in the tree. Not that it bears any resemblence to my personal past experiences or anything... honestly.

Casing jumps, nose diving jumps, landings, driving the front end into ruts and large drops to flat are fun?...You are hardcore

They did that to tell people they are tired of their suspension being brought back broken.

Hey, that's the breaks when you're a suspension fork manufacturer. I hope they don't expect anyone to take that seriously. If you build a mountain bike fork, it better be tough!

And they probably hope that anyone doesn't sue them either.

The moral of this story is: a bandana does not equal a helmet

well, sort of on the right track. he's just not sporting the proper gang affliated bandana colors. he's wearing neutral colors which is a 'no no.'
