- Singletrack Decide Not To Cover the Danny MacAskill Playboy Video
tbh i would take the view that it’s an absolutely cr@p video as good enough reason not to view it.
I can’t believe the thread about it went on for so long as there wasn’t exactly much playboy bunny content and certainly nothing much to be outraged over. Just a disappointing attempt to make a bike video and not up to Danny’s or Redbull’s usual standards.
But, they were given the chance to ride and film there – why not? As long as they didn’t jump over girls involved in soft (or hard) porn I don’t see a problem. Just next time make the riding worth the effort. (obviously I can’t do anything like Danny can do but know he can do better and enjoy watching these types of videos when done properly).Posted 3 years ago
I’m with Mark on this one. Even the thought of playboy makes me think of sniggering 14 year olds and Jimmy Saville.
You seem like a decent sort, Adam. But u wot m8?
If Playboy makes you think of, world renown paedophile/necrophiliac, Mr Saville, then I would love to see the mental gymnastics that got you to that conclusion.Posted 3 years agofionapSubscriber
Great decision by Singletrack. Another reason to buy their mag rather than MBUK or similar, where you’re still likely to find the odd female in the ads, draped over some obscure bike components or cheesy clothing.
This: “But it’s hard enough getting women into cycling (and getting them accepted by the male egos there) without this kind of dated “mags lad” video.”
Plus the riding in the film was shite.Posted 3 years ago
That’s not exactly shouting about it – it’s just taking a position.
To me it’s the taking a position thing that comes up in here loads on the “What will you be doing to avoid the _______” threads of trying to point out that you just purchased a fine acre of moral high ground to build an ivory tower and a glass house.
If you don’t want to support something and give it publicity then just don’t talk about it.Posted 3 years agoD0NKSubscriber
Presumably Danny is keeping quiet and not making any comments?
too busy slacklining
Fair enough for not wanting to cover it; it’s their choice but shouting it from the rooftops is desperate and a bit pathetic.
is 1 tweet shouting from the rooftops? I’ve only heard about it from this thread, they didn’t put owt up on the front-page (I had to check, don’t hit front page very often 😳 )Posted 3 years ago
what’s the ‘link’ between it and the Danny Mac video?
The Danny Mac Red Bull/Playboy ad is controversial as it has women in swimwear wandering round and objections to the objectification of women.
The Vain Variant vid is a bit weird and using term controversial will ensure more hits to it.Posted 3 years agoJef WachowchowMember
I watched the video over the weekend.
If you want a video showcasing the amazing skills of Danny, all his previous ones are much better in my opinion. The stunts and camera work fall short of what he has produced before.
If you want a video of girls in bikini’s, the internet is full of them.
It seemed to me to be purely a stunt to generate this type of chat and controversy.Posted 3 years agoNickSubscriber
You only have to look on the Mirror website to see how the misogynists see this..
RIDE of his life (snigger)
The Playboy Mansion has seen more than its fair share of action over the years. (action, fnarr)
how to thrill the ladies (go on my son)
scantily clad models (phoar)
audience of buxom beauties parading (hubba hubba)
enjoy a splash with the saucy stunners (bet she’s a goer)
a selection of gorgeous glamour girls (etc etc etc)
Can’t blame Singletrack for not wanting anything to do with that, and disappointed that Danny thought it was a good idea, he deserves all the criticism he gets.Posted 3 years ago
