I went to the movies this weekend-Slumdog Millionaire. I liked it but it's not for the faint of heart. Anyway there was a Stella Artois spot before it. I know, I hate commercials at the movies but I'll make an exception for this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mcNVb6uDR4 Enjoy. Phil Brown Mysterious in a rainy Berkeley, Calif.

very cool spot, but, as expected, they didn't get the bikes right... in any kind of a hill-climb tandem race in France at that time everyone would have been riding constructeur-style french tandems. The bike those guys are riding looks like a jack Taylor touring... it may not be, but a double-diamond tandem in a french hill-climb race of the 1920s or 30s seems unlikely...Jan Heine would know for sure.. Jan?
