Anyone seen this?

http://visitcalifornia.co.uk/content/view/60/63/

The Jersey and bike suggest that That is George Hincapie, but, unless it is the lack of Oakleys, I am sure it doesn't look like him....

Anyone put me out of my misery?

    It also includes a good recipe.....!
    Dressed for heavy construction work, Quaid makes the POWER
    SHAKE to end all power shakes. He grinds up fruits,
    vegetables, buts, wheat germ, leftovers, several kinds of
    powder. He pours in a dozen shelled eggs--glubglubglub--from
    a carton. Then he mixes it all together in a forty-horsepower
    blender. ZEEEEEEEE!

    No the whole advert is annoying.

    It's like advertising an IT post in the north of Scotland with images of days spent walking in the hills, bombing along trails on a hard tail, Stunning scenery. The only job where your likely to be able to do that every day is working for bugger all as an estate worker.

    I think you've missed the point, they are advertising it as a holiday destination, the "joke" is that they are all pretending they are at work etc etc

    remember "get your ass to Mars"

    Good for what? Don't forget it is pretty much the size of the UK.

    Scenery etc - deserts down south and inland, green rolling hills to the north, mountains to the east, coastal to the west.

    Things to do - depends what you like. For a short visit I liked the very relaxed atmosphere of San Diego.

    I used to live down south, inland from LA, which was essentially desert, hot and polluted. It was an experience however to be riding the canyon roads over Christmas wearing shorts and short sleeves.
  • Hi Guys!

    I just wanted to give you the heads up about California Tourism’s latest ad, which you might have already seen on TV (it’s also on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-puqlYR ... r_embedded

    We’ve decided to spice things up by getting people to audition for a part in the commercial by uploading YouTube videos onto www.californiacalling.co.uk This is an opportunity of a lifetime to travel to California, hang out with A-listers, and to be treated like a star.

    We’re also on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/californiacalling and Twitter @CAcalling

    Is California calling yet?

    No.

    But while you're here, perhaps you could explain why Adam Buxton looks like Captain Haddock in the You Tube vid.haddock.gif

    I loved it, but I'm a bit weird. I could have happily moved there although, I wasn't into cycling at the time. I wouldn't really fancy riding anywhere near LA.
