Blown up three times. Jpg artefacts are mainly from the original, which BTW is not the one the OP posted; I worked from a slightly higher res version found on the www.
Looks like twice the same uni to me, small differences are probably due to different position with respect to pixel grid when the picture was reduced in size.

here is a better blow up from the linked add



identical unicycles but the valve stems are not in the same places and one has a lower seatpost.

EDIT: the real question is how they stay on there at highway speeds

Maybe these are the famous auto-balancing unicycles? If the unis are photoshopped on the roof, they've done a good job at the reflection.

More likely photoshopped the strings out which are holding them up on the car in front of the backdrop/bluescreen.

Yup, probably a studio shot. Though a wheel is reflected on top of the car, no reflections of the background around the edges of the car. No visible means of support for the unicycles, so the string idea sounds likely. Easier to paint out strings than to do other editing. But it's interesting how the two cycles look so similar, and yet have different valve positions...

Indeed. Perhaps us lot should have done the advert, sounds like we have a much better idea how to do it than those guys

One unicycle, a decent MUni and make it covered in mud!
