Maybe consider taking the bus? - Click above to watch the video after the jump

Being the type of people who obsessively cover the auto industry, we generally prefer four-wheeled travel to pedal-for-yourself bicycling. Not that riding a bike is a bad thing... quite the opposite, actually. Getting out, seeing the sights and smelling the fresh air away from the hustle and bustle of the city is a great way to spend some free time and maybe put a dent in the ol' blogger spare tire.

That said, if we've got somewhere to be, like, say, meeting up with some old Italian friends at the local wine bar, we'd certainly opt for the car. After watching the video after the break, though, we wonder if it would be a safer bet to just hop on the bus. Guess it depends on your chosen occupation, eh? Hit the jump to watch the video and check out veryfunnyads.com for more humorous commercials.

      Sure, bicyclists live longer...those bicycle airbags, crumple zones and seat belts have prevented thousands of bicyclists from dying in an accident.

        its a risk we are willing to take. we aren't weak. many are rude and stupid, but not weak.

      certainly we would not expect any other sacrificial vehicle brand to blow up ...

      Sigh.

      Considering the attention span of the typical cyclist is no better than the attention span of the typical car driver, I don't think cyclists live any longer than drivers. Especially round these parts.

      haha those fat $h!t$ should try it!

      why was this even posted. Most amurrricans would not even get it. They are the guys that just got blown up.

        Speaking as an "Amurrrican" [is that a sic or a slur?] and an avid bicyclist who lives in the state of Florida, the weather here makes it impractical to use bicycles as transportation for anything other than recreation for 9-10 months out of the year. Our high temperatures and high humidity make scurrying from air-conditioned building-to-vehicle-to-building the norm. Even walking a block most of the time in business clothes would result in a sweaty mess.

        Granted, I (unfortunately) perspire more than the average person, and there are some on the other side of the spectrum (lucky sobs!) who don't at all, but I'm representative of the vast majority.

        For those of you outside the US, most of our South is in a similar situation. I'd also seat-of-the-pants-guess that, generally speaking, about 25-40% of the country is in a similar situation 60-80% of the year.

        Now if you're complaining about those who don't bicycle in more temperate areas, I see your point - but that's not the whole country.

      After the stupid VW New Beetle ad and this one, I am boycotting any future veryUNfunnyads.com ads disguised as posts on Autoblog.

      A car commercial?
      FAIL
        • 5 Years Ago
        Come on, you have to understand that it was NOT a car commercial, right?

        It was all about "selling" people on the health benefits of NOT using a car...

      (2) The following posts referencing "veryfunnyads.com" were funny: (null)
      (3) The following posts referencing "veryfunnyads.com" were not authored by Jeremy Korzeniewski: (null)

      We can conclude that (1) "veryfunnyads.com" does not have funny ads (point 1), (2) Jeremy Korzeniewski is not funny (points 1 and 2), and (3) none of the other Autoblog writers seem to think "veryfunnyads.com" has funny ads (point 3).

      I offer the following question: Why are these posts here?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Wait, so they're Italian, and they drive a Cadillac (an 80's one at that), and this is a Dutch commercial?

      Huh?
        • 5 Years Ago
        and speaking French? Une bicyclette? He Haw He Haw
