Haha, there's already so many threads about this.
It's a sick commercial though.

saw it last night. It totally took me by surprise, I was in awe about the uni rider and didn't realize what the commercial was about. I had to ask my wife what the commercial was about.

I saw it on the discovery chanel a couple weeks ago. It was pretty tight. You got to love Columbia commercials.

He was. When he said off road unicycling, I'm sure he meant street and trials as well.

Its 10 times cooler when you see it on your TV. It really is. I saw it on my computer, and watching TV at random, it just came at me, and I was so in shock. It was like Christmas, only I got something good.

it is pretty sweet, but it said he invented mountain unicycling... which isn't really true.

i just read the above posts, and if you wanna get technical, george peck was unicycling up rocky hills when kris holm was but a wee lad.

The commercial would have been dumb if he just started spouting off random crap about george peck and other old people, it makes it all the more interesting for him to say he pioneered the sport, which he definitely did, he just wasn't the very first person to do it. Frankly I doubt George Peck was the first person to ride a unicycle off road as well, he was just the first one to advertise it. Dan took it the point where it could become mainstream with his movies.

Dan Heaton has never done a 360 unispin on flat. He learned them down a 6 set.
