It's for the children...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It's for the children...

Was invited to take part in a commercial shoot for the Glencoe Grand Prix this last Friday. Parody of the ATT commercials. I swear I'm not really that fat....its that everyone else is super skinny....

Enjoy:

That was good, but I thought you were going to parody The Hudsucker Proxy - O - You know, it's for the kids.
