    That is awesome. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D One of the funniest things I have seen in a long time. So nearly got busted in the office for laughing too loudly.
    Short hairy legged roadie FCN 4 or 5 in my baggies.

    Basically the gist of it was three clips from a French TV show where they went and followed 3 separate riders at different times, who were just out enjoying a sunday road ride in the hills, with the TV presenter/commentator/prankster chappie coming up behind in a topless Citroen 2CV (what else :roll:) with a bike strapped to the roof I think it was.

    As he comes up behind them he's shouting on a megaphone something along the lines of "Come on <insert rider's name> hurry up!", "you're almost at the finish line", "everyone is waiting for you", "what a remarkable performance" etc... :lol:

    Poor rider doesn't have the foggiest clue wtf is going on but keeps chugging away till he rounds the bend and there's loads of spectators along the road cheering him on, and one dude wearing just a pair of Y-fronts pants running alongside or doing a moonie in the third rider's case.

    There's markings spray painted on the road and even a Finish Line banner hung above the road. As he gets across the finish line the cheering crowd mob the baffled rider and hug/lift him off bike into the air/chuck water over, basically everything an excited french crowd watching something like TdF would do if their countryman won. :lol: :P

    There, remembered all that from an 8 minute vid watched almost 12 hours ago!

    edit: just searched for "sunday cyclist" on YT and found another copy of the same vid:

    edit2: here's the official HQ vid from Remi Gaillard's, the prankster, YT channel:

    Dom Jolly did this on a zebra crossing but the car at the head of the queue was a CID car and the coppers got out and had words.
