One Got Fat

I don't know what to say about this video other than it is truly bizarre. But it's also hilarious, surreal, and really scary. It's like the Twilight Zone for bicyclists. I'm sure I'll have nightmares. It has nothing to do with urban simplicity other than its main subject is about bikes. It's a 15 minute bicycle safety video put out in 1963...I'd be surprised if anyone ever got on a bike again after watching this. I first came across a shorter version of this on Facebook (thanks Jamie!) and I was so taken by it I had to post it. If you're interested in reading about the plot prior to watching it, click here. I just know I'll see monkey-faced kids on bikes in my dreams tonight.
