We can't remember ever seeing a commercial for a bus at all, much less one that was genuinely epic, but we can cross both those firsts off our bucket list thanks to an ad for Denmark's Midtraffik public bus system.

Midttrafik wanted to make riding the bus cool, and the result is this 90-second spot directed by Marc Wilkins that runs through all the awesome features on buses like designer bells with cool functions, donuts of the tire-smoking kind and nice seats. But that doesn't even begin to describe it, so perhaps the tagline on the Midtraffik site puts it best: Drama, desire and plenty of bus. Don't miss it; the commercial (with subtitles) is below.

      Outstanding. It's always nice when organizations don't take themselves too seriously. What the heck can you do when tasked with creating an ad for public transportation? I say they did a darned fine job here. And he's still cool.

      Great ad, but it's like a mcdonald's commercial - it's not all what i seems. and yes i take public transit to work everyday.

      I'm so not convinced! No way I ride in one of those... I'd rather walk or ride a bike.
