Has anyone else seen that Eclipse Mints TV ad where the girl makes out with some guy… the same guy that NJS walks his fixed down the stairs (I mean I don’t expect him to ride it)? I’m assuming it’s a fixed, I can’t see any brake levers on the drops.
Is this the first ad on Australian TV featuring a “fixie”?
Or is there more?
Yeah I saw it too. There’s obviously been a frenzy of sharks jumping each other recently.
Jesus I couldn’t stand to be associated with such a fashionable thing.
I’m buying a razor scooter now, those things are fucking everywhere anyway, why not join in?
I haven’t seen the ad yet but I’ll keep a LOOK out for it. NJS walking on TV sounds cool!
I’ll tell you what I have seen though- millions upon millions of fixies locked up on Gertrude St Fitzroy. This street surely has the highest density of fixed gear bikes I have seen, it’s out of control (I seem to use this term a lot when described fixies these days… :|)
Damoh, who works on this street told me to “get used to it, it’s been like this for months…”
And in case any of you were wondering, I survived my wisdom tooth operation, and I’m at home experiencing throbbing pain. But, it’s done. :mrgreen:
saw this advert last night and my housemate gave me shit…
She asked me if I was eating mints for dinner cause thats what the ‘cool fixty kids’ eat now. FML.
I saw a add for a mitsubishi colt or something the other night and it slowly passes a fixie placed next to a pole nothing else in the shot.
The latest subway add had a guy riding fixed behind a few guys dancing under the Brisbane riverside express then after a few airings the bit with the fix was taken out. I think it was Luke from Bros. Must have just been rolling through the shot when they were filming.
when i saw the mint add, I actually had to pause and rewind to believe my eyes… then i played it in slow motion to make out what the bike was, but it was too blurry.
The woman w/ mints appears to devour the fixter’s soul!
