2012 TdF - The TV Commercials

There are three things you can always count on seeing on your TV when the TdF kicks off in July...

  1. Doping stories
  2. Aerial views of castles and chateaus and freaked-out horses running in panic across verdant fields
  3. TV commercials

A comment by intrepid mountain goat cow Willj in today's live thread prompted me to wonder, since we have such an international crew here watching the race on so many different outlets, I imagine that each of you have your own set of new and glorious Le Tour commercials to view? And like us here in the states, surely some of them are worth sharing, so I'll start...

The standout thus far has got to be the Jens! Voigt and Bobke Roll RoadID advert called "Long Hauler". It features Jens!, a big rig, and a case of chilli. It's juvenile, tasteless, and gross, in short, it's fucking perfect!

And the other RoadID ads aren't bad either, including one featuring Levi Leipheimer, Lucas Euser, and George Hincapie, plus a few others, as hippie stoners driving around in Drew and Chris' old Deadhead VW Bus. Inhale deeply, my friends, and you will fail your next doping control, I guarantee....

Any more?
