Ad of the day: would you take on a cinema full of bikers?

It’s date night. You and your beloved walk into the movie cinema armed with popcorn, only to find two seats left – in the midst of 148 surly bikers who are staring you down. What do you do next?

We all find ourselves falling into the trap of believing some pretty silly stereotypes. This funny Carlsberg ad shines a light on what happens when you put aside your preconceptions about people and just have a good time.

It might be particularly relevant to Carlsberg, or even beer, but people are really loving this ad!

    I don't think this is about believing in silly stereotypes at all. The theater could have any group dressed in a uniform. Its clear that any large group would be interacting with each other and causing some disturbance. Its quite normal for a couple who are seeking privacy to be threatened by this situation.

    In this world were everyone seems to be demanding their rights, there are some freedoms that seem to be forgotten like if a person wants to do their own thing.

    The group will always take priority over the individual but a person doesn't have to be part of a group if they don't want to. Is bowing to peer pressure a good thing?

    Customers should have been informed at the ticket office that the theater was almost filled with a large group of one denomination. That's if this was a real Scenario

    Not very realistic is it, I don't think I would be going to see the same film as a bunch of bikers.

    I agree. No way realistic and highly unlikely that I would see the same movie as bikers Customers should always be advised fi there is a large number number of bikers or even highs school students

    Why not just say 'excuse me' and take the seats? After all, you are all there to see the film!!

    On the whole if you speak to bikers politely they will treat you the same way.
    Not all in their club uniforms are hard to get along with. Some would do anything to help a person in difficulty. Quite a few years ago there was a group of nurses who were bike fanatics and used to go camping together. They always carried some first aid equipment on their bikes as well as their own clothes etc. One day they stopped to help at a bad car accident. While they were busy helping the victims before ambulances arrived some disgusting people stole clothing and other first aid equipment from on the motor bikes.
