Revenge of cyclists

This is a film that recently became very popular on the web. Although in the end it turns out its a ad for a clothing company it is mostly controversial because of the violent anti-pedestrian message. For me it was quite funny, because I cycle a lot in the city and I often have to deal with rude drivers and pedestrians. Often they just don’t get that it is a normal means of transport for some people (“go ride in the countryside!”, “get a car if you want to drive in the street”).
Recently I was crossing a park on my bike and a dog bit my leg. I complained to the owner, and she said: “it’s because you damn cyclists go everywhere with your bikes!”

Now that’s what I call a violent message!
