Random....What's the advertisement of the dad riding at 2am?

Been looking for it, seen it before as a commercial before a youtube GCN show.

It's a commercial of a busy dad who wakes up in the middle of the night to be able to have time to go ride. He goes around his empty city in the night then comes to climb back in bed with his wife at the end.

    LOL! That's a throwback commercial.

    I love older commercials that remind me of good times, like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnXArm-NViI
    Classic Coke vs. Pepsi tv advertisement.

    Don't know that one but the "Rapha Calling" vid on youtube has a hottie going out for a ride before dawn. Inspiring on more than one level.

    That was basically it, but with a guy that's a dad sneaking out of bed from 2am to 4am or something.

    Probably was Rapha. Cruised youtube after you posted that one about the ladies but couldn't find it.

    Anyway, it gave me the idea when I saw it to plan a local midnight ride to bomb some censored roads you always want to but can't between the hours of 530a and 10p. We have a local cycling brewery open that late also, that would be a must stop. :D

    I'm intrigued. I Googled and Youtubed all sorts of variations and... nada.

    Any more detail OP?

    It's about a crazy woman who goes out at night with no flicking lights!

    With no less than 19 plugs of the Rapha logo, never mind the spoken or write over one's.
    Her '...hands and feet are cold...". Well, I won't buy Rapha stuff then - it must be shyte.
