A Year In The Life Of A Chained Bike In NYC, And A Bashful Japanese Girl With A Machine Gun In Her Butt

Okay, to close out the week I have two videos I’ve been dying to post all day. They could not be more different.

Being a sucker for time lapse web videos AND a guy who had four bikes stolen over an 8 year period while living in New York City, there was no way I could resist posting this.

Get a bike. Lock it to a post. Take a pic every day for a year.

Last year, Red Peak Branding conducted a unique urban experiment for Hudson Urban Bicycles. On January 1, 2011 we chained a fully loaded bike – bells, basket, lights and more – to a post along a busy Soho street. We took a picture of the bike everyday for 365 days, watching it slowly vanish before our eyes. The photos we took were then turned into a daily calendar. We call this project LIFECYCLE: 365 days in the life of a bike in NYC.

Meanwhile, in Japan…

Below is a scene from RoboGeisha where bashful embarrassment activates a machine gun inside a Japanese schoolgirl’s butt. You’re welcome.

Y’all have a great weekend!
