Another Reason to Ride Your Bike

Via Treehugger, the country of Hungary has a new campaign that aims to get more people on their bikes.  The title of the ad, and the warning that this video is NOT SAFE FOR WORK WITHOUT HEADPHONES, is probably all you need to know about the video’s content if you’re not planning on watching the video.

 For those of you still at work, Treehugger gives the video’s translation:

First of all, on the biker lady’s bag it says: bike to work.

Then the lady asks the old man: would you like some tea? He answers:
thank you, that would be lovely. As she is listening to the noises
coming from the other room, she mutters under her breath: you should
rather be biking, too, Rezso. And then at the end, the tag line is
almost the same: You should rather be biking, too or (ride your bike
instead as well – which is a more literal translation). 

  • I LOVE IT!!!! THANK YOU FOR SHARING :-))))
