That looks like Home Depot in the US, even the orange aprons are similar.

Flymo?  Haven't seen one of those since the late 1970's.  When working at the parks dept there was one in a shed, not working.  Don't remember if it was called Flymo, but was told it didn't need wheels because it glided on a cushion of air, sort of like a hovercraft.  Of course back then it was gas engine powered.

Awesome commercial! Someone on the forum has to try this at a Home Depot in the US.

Cool commercial.

I never get off the wheel coming into the Home Depot.  Most of the time I get away with it. A couple of times they finally caught up with me and asked me to stop.

This is far more of a Wheel advert than for pushing paint, exceptionally awesome! Just the type of positive publicity it deserves in a land where Wheeling around is considered in the same spectrum of criminality as being a drunken lout. 

Riders aren't too bad too, not much wobbling going, in the closing scene one of the guys is riding one-legged.  

I've ridden a Wheel through B&Q before, with this advert it's sort of an open license to use inside, maybe...   

You should approach Home Depot about doing the same (with a small ewheel logo in the corner)...

Then they could pay for your advertising!

Must be time for the long weekend. :sleep1: Anyone else read the thread title and think "What UK BBQ Add-in" is he talking about?  Rotisserie motor?  Cast iron grill top?  I tell ya, the English are massacring the English language.  :whistling:

Happy to be able to speak with authority here...

The final rider who places the board "on the screen" is my business partner - wee run a circus company (FlameOz.com if you're interested) - I was unable to attend the audition so I passed it to him. We've both been riding for a couple of years now!

The other riders were dancers/commercial dancers who had been given a couple of weeks to learn how to ride by the choreographer.

Can't say who supplied the wheels, but they didn't give them away at the end of the shoot... (damn ;P) 

 

 

 

 

 

Interesting! Have any been tempted to get their own wheels since?
