The World Has Changed


At last, 61 seconds of film in succint reply to the incessant whining about how things can't change, behaviour won't change, people won't ride bicycles in 'my' city, blahblahblah. From the World Wildlife Fund in Canada. Via @katsdekker and @thecyclingjim

This should have gone viral when it first came out.

Lol, how ridiculous that they put disclaimers at the bottom, presumably for people too stupid to understand the point of the video?

Also funny how they cut very quickly on that last scene, otherwise you'd see how hard it is to cycle with a briefcase in one hand!

@Jonathan WWF must not have had access to a Velorbis :)

I loved this! I'm also excited because I plan on being in CPH later this week and can't wait to experience bicycle culture after only hearing about it via blogs, videos and such. I'm already preparing myself for months of depression afterword.

Yes, at the end of the first one they were clueless to give the guy a bike with which he could carry his briefcase. Actually this whole video really annoys me. It is really smug and I really really wonder if it makes a difference.

One thing that struck me is how it's the kind of video that could easily be taken by the usual suspects as an argument for wearing helmets (only for bikes, of course, since bike-riding is so dangerous, unlike anything else).

Maybe in Canada those things have changed...but I've seen them all quite alive and well in the U.S., and quite recently (granted, the smoking doctors and pregnant women are _outside_ the hospital now. Otherwise, though, not much is different.).

Nice to see one of our commercials, I saw that one in the gym on the advertising screens in the change room for the last few years.
