Giant Bicycles strikes back at stupid GM ad via @grist

GM's ad about how embarrassing it is to ride a bike? Dumb . Giant Bicycles ' parody response? Classy! Also pretty amusing. Click to embiggen, but the main text reads thus: Reality does suck. Luckily bicycles don't... In fact it's the best thing you can do to save hundreds...even thousands of dollars a year. It doesn't matter if you're in college, young, or old. The only thing you have to lose is some weight..and the burden of fuel prices. Okay, it's not the best-punctuated thing I've ever read (what's ".."?), but that comparison between the fuel costs of a bike and a car is priceless.
