Yeah, looks like a KH36er with a Nightrider tyre. The handlebar setup is interesting. I wonder who the rider is? Does anybody on the forum know him?

Don't know him, but recognize the homemade handle from his videos on here -- it's Pete, website is "Digital Hippie" . OZ or NZ?

I would think most people wouldn't even realize it's a unicycle.

I know, huh..they're problably thinking.." hmmm..there's something
PHP Code:
weird 
about thatbike.."


In my part of town unis' are so rare. 1st time I saw one was at my son's playground last year, where a 5th grader showed he could ride around for a little.
Then second time was when I driving to work. I saw a young guy practice riding a 29er on the street. So excited, I wanted to, and nearly pulled over to have chat as if we had something really, really major in common...

Thinking about it, I might of scared him poopless into a UPD onto upcoming traffic,
thinking some nut head approaching him out of no where....

Wheeew....a unicyclist casualty wouldnt have been a pretty sight

Extremely cool! I don't know how quick I would have been to pick up on the unicycle in that commercial if I were watching it on TV. If I were paying attention I know I would see it, and I imagine the creators of the ad did enough screening of it to make sure random people would notice the cycle was at least unusual. I think it's great.

Glad somebody noticed it and was able to post it! We have a DVR, so we only watch commercials now if we're not in the room, or at a hotel.

My boys got all excited this morning when they saw this advertisement. It played during the Flintstone Movie on ABC Family. So Cool!
