    none of us know what it is or isn’t going to show

    well there’s been a number of stills on Danny Mac’s twitter feed.[/quote]

    Fair enough, I wasn’t aware of that – I don’t use Twitter!

    Wonder if danny will be attending a Pride event and doing some tricks wearing a pair of lycra shorts and a tight t shirt.

    Just to prove he isnt sexist and to just balance things out.

    chip it is possible to both have a sex life and not need to mix awesome cycling with mild sexual titillation that adds nothing to the former. You have missed the issue . perhaps its true that it does make you go blind πŸ˜‰

    Its not hypocritical to enjoy sex and object to this stunt [ it does not even mean you object to porn] For example I can object to page 3 without actually objecting to breasts or newspapers.

    I am not sure why you need this explaining to you tbh.

    Sad.

    I thought Danny doing a VW advert that used a Joy Formidable track was bad enough. I know that tits sell, but I’d like to think my sport was a little bit cooler than that.

    Edit, chip? Grow up a bit, yeah?

    I don’t need you to explain anything to me.
    Just don’t watch the video if you don’t want to see playboy bunnies near mountain bikes.

    Simples.

    If other people do, they can.

    I know that tits sell, but I’d like to think my sport was a little bit cooler than that.

    Thinking about it though, is it not the other way round? I’d have thought this isn’t bikes using tits to sell bikes, this is tits using bikes to sell tits… And possibly red bull using tits to sell red bull. But I don’t think Inspired’s budget would run to hiring the playboy mansion for an advert.

    Northwind, you’re probs right, I reckon this will sell more tits than bikes.

    It’s such a naf idea

    Those that support such things should buy the products, those that don’t support should avoid the products – and maybe form a protest group. The end result will determine how much this happens in the future.

    chip – I think it’s you who needs to get over yourself. 😐

    Don’t worry bedwetters, this won’t be allowed when we’ve let the Muslims take over.

    I’m not sure MTBs have ever been cool, apart from to those who ride them.

    And now you can judge/frot/self combust:

    Dude’s gotta earn a living. I’m not going to judge, I have no idea if he does well/OK from riding/hopping etc but he won’t be able to do it forever. I doubt it will be a full “tits out” affair anyway.

    I’m outraged! Way too many swoopy helicopter type shots and not enough bike riding.

    you are a hypercrit.

    I’m not sure what that is but it sounds fast! Can I be one of those please?

    Cliched, and boring. Jesus there is hardly any riding in it, pretty desperate stuff.

    what he said, bit poor for Danny that. Was the fakie nose wheelie whatever it’s called thingy speeded up or is my connection just crap? Looked a bit juddery.

    At least there was a strong story behind it.

    It wasn’t his best riding, although that nose manual down the lawn was pretty heroic (did he manage it all in one go?). It’s actually quite a cool location to film, the overly-manicured gardens look kind of surreal and the waterfall is an infamous location that no one else will have ridden before.

    So it’s a fairly standard 6/10 from me. I am not outraged.

    it was no imaginate and he didnt even leap 50 bunnies in a single bunny hop

    Danny continuing his theme of riding in odd places around the world. Certainly more pleasant backdrop than a rusty railway.
    I liked the backwards nose-wheelie thing down the lawn, but the rest of the riding was a bit meh.
    And the wave goodbye at the end? sheesh….

    I must admit it wasn’t the best danny movie I’ve seen. Hardly any riding. As I previously guessed it would have women as a backdrop in an iconic location.
    I didn’t expect the flamingos and monkeys mind.

    Nah, I’m sure he has it drained. (The pool that is)

    The video was ok, not great, not offensive in anyway.
    Just danny riding around Hugh’s house , a man who has made a fortune through the clever marketing/branding of soft porn.
    As seen on the Simpsons, fresh prince and was it not in one of the Beverly Hills cop fims.
    And was not Bridgett jones dressed as a bunny girl in one of the films, it is an iconic image wether you disagree with it or not.

    Bit disappointed he did not do,

    I’m not offended, just think it’s tacky.

    Well it will be after touching any surface in that compound.

    I’d be surprised if all of the fluid in that pool isn’t Heffners semen. It is probably crystal clear by now considering the amount he’s dispensed.

    Its a sorry concept and he’s gone down in my estimation whatever his reasons or motivation.

    Crap video but cheesy and in no way sexist or exploitative. Ad for Hugh and Red Bull and that was it. Will any of the “Massively Outraged” from pages 1 & 2 like to return?

    So, as well as Danny we saw some monkeys and birds and parrots, oh, and some girls who just happen to be draped around the garden and tennis court and pool in way that almost made them seem like they weren’t really human beings at all but just….objects?

    Hmmmmmmmmm

    Sexism issues aside, I’ve always thought that waterfall feature in the pool would be a gigle to ride trials on. My view hasn’t changed.

    Is the one in the red the head bunny then?

    looked like a shampoo/yoghurt/special K/etc video to me albeit with more bunny tails/ears than usual and a bloke riding his bike. A bit crap, in an advert kind of way.
