Any cyclists out there? Yeah, me too. Try as we might to be taken seriously, it's hard to know who laughs at cyclists more – drivers or pedestrians.
In this guy's case, he was fed up with the lack of respect shown to him and his bicycling compatriots. As he tried to pass over the Brooklyn Bridge, he found that the bike lane was littered to the point of congestion with pedestrians. So, instead of getting angry or yelling, he tried a different tactic to get his message across – he sang at them to ask them to move.
You can see in the video below that using the theme from Star Wars and another tune, he hollers "Bike lane! Don't stand in the bike lane! You're in the bike lane! Would you please move?" over and over while the crowd reluctantly parts in front of him.
People's reactions range from amusement to annoyance but he ends up moving faster than the guy recording it, who doesn't get very far by meekly asking people to please move out of his way.
At the end of the day, it's unlikely that the video made any lasting impact on anyone's consideration of the bike lane but even if one person gives it a second thought, this hero has done his job.
If you're curious, the singing cyclist is Noam Osband, a musician and filmmaker who has his own anthropology-based YouTube channel called The Nosy Anthropologist.
