    I’d imagine that there is a substantial “monetary incentive” involved.

    A super talented bike rider and beautiful women.
    Sounds awful 😛

    Why lame?

    I’m a guy and I like women.

    I also think it’s lame. Playboy, Hugh Hefner and the ‘playboy mansion’ are naff and belong in the last century – along with page three. It does nothing for the sport (where female participation is already low) and it appeals to the lowest common denominator male attitude.

    Sad lads huddling round a PC, rubbing their thighs going huh,huh,hu, gurlz, huh, huh, huh, boobz. That’s what this is, no more, no less.

    So, maybe I’ll be in a minority but I’m really disappointed to read (https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152263533303225) that Danny Macaskill has agreed to shoot a video at the Playboy Mansion.

    Surely he knows better than this? Surely he knows not all his followers/fans are 13 year old boys??

    By the hashtag I’d suggest it has more to do with Redbull(sh*ts) marketing strategy than Danny.

    Not impressed.

    In balance, therefore I demand that Matt Hunter comes round to my house. 😆

    Jamesy- I doubt Redbull are holding a gun to his head. He has choices over what is appropriate and what isn’t…

    Not cool. Not even remotely cool. Pretty crap really. -10 on the Fonz scale.

    I know he’s nowt but a lad from Skye who’s nifty on pushbike but I had him on a higher plane than this.

    My 4yo daughter loves watching Danny’s videos, we may avoid this one.

    Maybe it will be better to pass comment once we’ve seen the film. I doubt there will be any flesh on show as his sponsors wouldn’t want that.
    Neither would any self respecting human being. If you want the sex industry its easy enough to find online.
    Beautifully dressed ladies as a backdrop in an iconic location can hardly be a bad thing.

    I agree, let’s see what is actually released but the Facebook postings so far are enough to push this past the mark for me.

    “Beautifully dressed ladies as a backdrop in an iconic location can hardly be a bad thing.”

    Women make a lovely backdrop…discuss.

    Beautifully dressed men are allowed in to the mansion too so maybe I should have said beatiful people.

    Let us men of STW break down the gates of the mansion 🙂

    Why wait when you can whinge and be offended before you even know what its going to contain, maybe 2 of the whingers could get together and complain to ofcom 😆

    Aye Hugh is indeed an unknown quantity and we know nothing of his mansion or the backdrop there…we are in the dark completely here 😕

    If you lot got the chance to be paid a **** load of money to go ride your bike at the playboy mansion I bet you’d jump at the chance. I certainly would. He’s living the dream!

    larrydavid +1. A bit sad given the original, inspirational video. He was just trying not to fall off the fence back then…

    Sexy half naked women are so last century and have no place modern society.
    I don’t think I know anyone who admires the female form never mind uses porn.

    I should imagine since the advent of the internet the porn industry has all but disappeared , mucky blighters.
    As there is clearly no demand for it this century.

    And a young female cyclist would not sink so low as to involve herself in titilation.
    No prudes please

    I’m offended and I’ll watch any footage to ensure my children don’t accidentally witness anything untoward.

    “Wow, he’s doing a no-handed fakey superman”

    I can’t actually believe anyone is getting hot under the collar about this.

    Oh, hold on, it’s STW – of course they are.

    I’ll check with Mrs STR later if she’s offended. I’m sure she will be couldn’t care less.

    Women that disapprove of this sort of thing are ugly and very bitter.

    Men that disapprove of this sort of thing are weak minded closet homosexuals.

    It’s an interesting one, in a similar way Air NZ has got some complaints about their inflight safety video with the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models. The missus even thought that it was in good taste and with humour but others disagreed.

    To avoid looking like one of those over quoted idiots talking about the Brass Eye spoof without watching it I’ll wait to see what it’s all about first.

    I really can’t see an issue. Should we form some sort of moral police to go around making women cover up?

    Can’t see a problem with it myself

    Phone rings: hello Danny fancy jumping over some semi naked chicks with massive cans?

    Danny M: yes.

    That’s how the phone call went in my imagination. Does the op really think some manly hebredian is going to turn down the chance to go see Hefner and his girls!?!?

    That’s not really the issue though, is it? What is, is the objectification of women for commercial ends, and that isn’t right.

    I thought the UK had got past the point of low-grade sexism, but this Twitter feed suggests otherwise.

    Yes. Still doesn’t make it appropriate though, does it?

    I’m pretty sure the playboy bunnies choose to do it for the cash, they are not slaves and are not forced to wear a certain style of dress in fear of being killed by rocks if they don’t adhere to some made up law.

    Playboy may not be your style of choosing, but I’m sure DMac would front flip off a gay and lesbian hessian turban factory roof it looked good on camera and he got payed well, before hes injured enough that his (relatively short) career ends.

    The majority of men are attracted to attractive girls, Dannys a big boy and can make his own decisions and I’m sure you will all watch it anyway and bank a few for later.

    He is only doing it hoping to get an invite into the sex room.

    Reminds me my sex room could do with a lick of paint.

    Can’t say I’m bothered by this, I think any heterosexual man getting offended at the idea of partially clothed women is probably a hypocrite.

    My wife is very into the Everyday Sexism twitter feed and while some of it is actually sexism, a lot of it is just people being rude, which they would do regardless of whether or not it was to do with women.
