Take from the Rich, Give to the Poor


A spot of retro Sherwood-Forest-Taking-from-the-rich-giving-to-the-poor Cycle Chic is this competition entry from the UK for the Robin Hood Tax.

So, poor people are riding (fixed gear) bikes and the rich bank people use much more sophistacated scooters?

Questionable message from a cycling marketing perspective, no?

Marco, that is a good point! And this view of the world is pushed by JCDecaux, with all its automobile and otherwise alienating and climate-destroying adverts.

Those "poor people" have awfully good teeth.

But I think this was obvious pantomime, no?

I liked the Sienna Miller version better :-)

How bad is this? Cyclists driving like crazy on the roads, in between buildings, along rows of columns, on narrow pedestrian bridges etc. It wants to transport the Hollywood car chase idea to the bicycle. Neither is this an idea worth to copy, nor does it work in this spot.
