    He got it through a sports casting agency.

    That’s open season in my book.

    Lets not. He has been whinging like a stuck pig the ungrateful what Wiggins said ๐Ÿ™‚

    wonderful life saving cause

    ?

    He got it because he rides a bike and is called Francis.

    The ads do give the impression that he’s riding the whole tour, but it’s only 4 stages. Actaully I dont even think its 4 full stages.

    Here’s the full length film. He is irritating and I am slightly envious of him but he is very annoying. [video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmN4OF_6qMU[/video]

    From crazy-legs link,

    It takes a man of great confidence, style and integrity to stand next to a cross made from the silhouette of four cocks and not look like a total joey.

    Dan Francis is not that man…..

    Brilliant ๐Ÿ˜†

    People actually pay any attention to adverts? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    I like ITV4’s evening coverage, and was shouting at the telly tonight for Millar!

    That Tour De Dickhead blog is brilliant.

    With my “**** media” hat on (and probably one of those well groomed fashion beards) i guess the advert has worked because its created a marmite response. The Halfords brand gets mentioned lots and some other t&*t with a fashion beard feels important somewhere in Shoreditch.

    Didn’t pay any attention to the advert until this thread, does oldgit work for Halfords ๐Ÿ˜†

    I suppose it was hard for them to come up with sensible things to say/show; mostly annoying as repeated so much – Allez, allez, allez…

    Do chuckle at the cadence up, cadence up, drop a gear one though:)

    Smashing it both up, and then down, THE river

    But who on here would have turned it down?

    And they would have got cheesier quotes off of me

    Every time I see/hear that I think “Do people actually say this when they ride? Why? Just why?”.

    Nice bit of frog’s legs. F*** off.

    I’d just fast-forwarded whenever I saw him as I assumed it was just an advert. Have I been bad?

    Is he really actually riding 4 stages? I honestly thought they’d just shot some one-off set-pieces and he hadn’t actually done any.

    But yes it is very annoying, especially the ‘…really big climb…’ one. Just shut it you whopper.

    Also if it is for some cause or other I really had no idea and I’ve seen about a hundred now.

    I like it. Just assumed he was an actor being filmed for just the bit he was riding.
    Makes me want to do a Tour climb. Better than the usual awesome dudes splashing through puddles

    I enjoyed them the first couple of days, now they’re irritating, but not enough to justify the personal venom of some though.

    Anyway they’re not for us, they’re for non-cyclists who may turn on TdF when they hear things are going well and haven’t seen anything like it before.

    They’ve been annoying me a bit, but I’m clearly less annoyed than some other people as I don’t wish him any harm. I think it’s the repetitiveness of the clips that’s grating as much as anything, more variety would help.

    “AAhhhh ham string crap” … pussy! It is THE most annoying advert ever, if they wanted someone who cycled and was called Frances they could’ve called me! I guarantee I wouldn’t have been quite so annoying and I definately would’ve done more than 4 stages ๐Ÿ˜‰

    As Mr MC calls it “Tour de c***”….. I will be turning to eurosport player as well, due to Sherwen and Liggett being total frigging idiots who talk rollocks “who he has a flat it’s going to be either the front or the rear” .. wow who would’ve thought it! Yet on Eurosport a train was seen going past yesterday and they asked people to text in with what train it was!! Brilliant!

    The clip that annoy’s me is the 3 random people celebrating at the top of the mountain – that is so obviously set up it’s ridiculous!

    I thought it was a Halfords advert. Never realised it was a charity thing. I must be one of the gifted ones who is immune to adverts. Or not? Where’s TJ when you need him?

    How do we know it’s a charity thing? wherehas someone found that out? still doesn’t make me like it any more!
