- Original Source Shaving Gel Advert…
Is only based around a bloomin mtber! Just saw it on C4 in the Big Brother adverts (yes yes I know!)
Picture the scene if you will…
Guy in body armour etc on what looks like a decent bike riding down a trail centre looking trail saying something along the lines of "after a downhill run I use Original Source minty shaving gel to perk me up again…" before cutting to an arty shot of 3 or 4 guys in the woods riding down a steep slope.
No idea if he's an actual biker but it's interesting that a mainstream brand/product is being advertised during the adverts of a non biking/sport tv programme.
It was a shedload better than the Tour de France Bikehut adverts thats for sure…

I've seen this, good isn't it?
But it was complete coincidence that I used Original Source minty shower gel after a gruelling XC run on this afternoon.
I didn't buy it because of the advert, but maybe my wife saw it and thought "that's the stuff that's good for cleaning mountain bikers".Posted 10 years agomAx_hEadSetSubscriber
Cussons .. same company as Imperial Leather … Rather than the CEO it's would normally be more likely someone in the ad agency who looks after the branding although speaking to Pat at SITS he says they are very keen on mtb and running and are great sponsors.Posted 10 years ago

"I think its one of the Santa Cruz team riders, and the trail is the Fort William mtb track – they've cleverly pasted another guys face over the original "
Could you possibly be confusing it with another video? I reckon his face looks a bit static because of the camera being mounted onto the helmet
I take a guess that the bike in the advert is a new Spesh Big Hit .., though am sure I could be wrong (the white one with domains)Posted 10 years agoI_AcheMember
Strangely I use that shaving gel but I brought it before I saw the ad. I thought it might have been fort bill but as I've never been I wasn't sure.
From Pausing the ad I think its a 2008 Spesh Demo 7. You can see it has a blue rocker and Juicy leavers. The Demo has those features.
