    well, this boarders on the rediculous. I am just waiting for the first report of someone in a Navigator pulling up next to someone on a bike smiling and giving the big thumbs up.

    I am not sure if I would resort to violence in response to said "thumbs up" however I can imagine my face contorting to a very confused expression.

    I see bikes used all the time in car and truck ads. Usually to subliminally put out the message that bikes are for 'recreation' and motor vehicles are for 'transportation'.

    I don't know what to say about that ad. Incredibly weird. So weird it's hard to believe it's real. It clearly is real, but just what is their target market?
