Mentos Commercial Idea

At lunch I was stuck (literally parked) in a traffic jam, my unicycle in the trunk.

For the two of you who haven’t figured it out:

You see the traffic jam, the guy throws on his hand-brake, pops the trunk, rides by the traffic on his uni, holding a pack of Mentos up to the camera. No… I didn’t leave my car, I just wanted to.

Thats a good one.

Been there, done that. Sort of. Stuck in jammed traffic for a couple of
HOURS one night on the way to a BJC, Paul and I did pop open the boot and
get the unis out. For a while we WERE the fastest vehicles on the road.

I actually did this the other day too. I was on the way home and got stuck in football traffic. I was planning to ride when I got home anyway, and the temptation was too much, so I pulled out the uni, rode home, then rode back to get the car a few hours later.

Someone tooted when I started riding, but whether it was at me I’m not sure.

You need to spice things up a little bit in your commercial.

Guy is going to pick up his date for dinner at a nice restraunt.
There’s a big traffic jam. He takes his unicycle out of the trunk and rides to his dates house. When he gets there the date says “Where’s your other wheel?” and he holds up the Mentos.
The commercial ends with them riding to the restraunt, via skill level 11.

I like it, but instant disqualification. I mean, inuendo or not using the comment “where’s your other wheel” is grounds for ending a relationship.
