Monday funday: bike frames, flashmobs and a timeless tantrum

Monday Funday is our weekly post where we round up the funniest (and sometimes unfunniest) bits of brand humour and collect them all up in one place – so you don’t have to spend your entire workday scrolling through YouTube and BuzzFeed. Get ready to have your ribs tickled.

Ritte Sport

George, our editorial director, came across Ritte a premium bicycle frame builder last week while searching for his next new bike and was delighted to see that along with some top quality tech, the brand also produces a whole bunch of hilarious comedy content. This irreverent overdubbing of a UCI press conference had us laughing out loud.


So did the brand’s approach to advertising posters.

In fact, we loved the brand’s content so much that George is giving some serious thought to Ritte’s super-flash Bosberg frame. Watch this space for pics of the new machine, in the meantime, check out Ritte’s Youtube videos.

Two’s company, three’s a choir

Reading the dictionary is one of the most boring things you could possibly do, right? Well singing it is an entirely different matter. Watch as a renegade choir let loose by mobile network Three, on the people of London, singing ‘random’ definitions from the dictionary at opportune times. Our favourite reaction is the cyclist admonished for not wearing a helmet. The campaign was launched to promote the fact all 0800 calls are now free on the network.


From the ha-ha-harchives

The message in this 2005 commercial is clear: use Vicks and seriously pwn your offspring when they try to throw a tantrum.
