“One Got Fat.” The oddest bike safety film ever.

I got turned on to this unusual 1963 bicycle safety film years ago. Something had me thinking about it this morning, so I thought I’d pass it along. The only thing I object to is the implied message that monkeys cannot ride bicycles safely. Not all non-human primate cyclists are created equal! Perhaps the stereotype is rooted in philology: Don’t monkey around on bikes. Click on the thumbnail to watch the video on YouTube.

Creepy.
