Pashley Bicycles: Bright orange

For God what reason, a young designer takes to wearing bright orange, lycra cycling shorts. Until she goes back to trousers, her Pashley resists traveling any route but the back streets. Cycling with dignity. Since 1926

The cycling is something way different than what this ad shows.
Go and spend a few hours with cycles. Something better will come out for sure.

Advertising is something way different than what you perceive.
You're being waaay to literal and subjective, erhanali.

>>>> That's not an ad. THIS is an ad.

Believe me or not - I have a leather jacket with that pattern! But instead of the bike there's a big plumber's friend on it.

I was dubious at first, but when I considered the target audience, I think this unexpected style would work well. Very good!

We're going to need more lube.

i don't see how this is hard to understand?
the execution is certainly not the best, but the copy made me laugh. i think it hits the stereotypes for both kind of cycling dead on, the ones we all see riding around town.
