Not Funny??

So I happened across this video on YouTube, and I thought it was quite funny, entertaining.

So I posted the link in the Road Cycling section of Bike Forums. The response (all non-Californians) was underwhelming. One dude thought it was "odd".

I thought the video good, maybe that's just me.
Or maybe outside of Caly people tend to be duds.
Or maybe this is too Caly-specific.
Maybe one needs to be a SoCal roadie to appreciate it.
Maybe one has to be a SoCal roadie who has done PCH and Latigo Canyon Road.

So I'm posting it again here, taking the chance of poor reviews again. If you don't like, sorry for wasting your time. If you like it -- cool.

Not that funny, but the scenery was nice.


Pretty sure I got dropped by those two on SGRT once.

Not funny, almost 'dumb'. What's the point of this video, or is it one of a series of video?

I was one of the naysayers on the original thread, and I live in SoCal.

The point of the video is combining the valley girl paradigm, ditzy young women with vapid materialism who inhabit shopping malls. "Like whatever!" / with the roadie paradigm, the fanatical bike athlete who ventures in public wearing spandex and considers pain + suffering = fun.

Anyway, tell me THIS cycling video isn't funny:
