Interesting. The bloke changes down and covers the brake but doesn't go to set up and doesn't change lane position to move away from the car. If you didn't know what you were looking for I don't know that it's a very effective ad.
It's really all about standing around drinking Dave's beer.

When I enter an intersection and there is a turning car I may just so slightly swerve just so it may attract the cage drivers attention.

Not much of an ad- no buffering from oncoming cars, two fingers on brake lever etc

They were my thoughts also, I wasn't sure initially if they were saying he was a good or bad example, if the car had have turned he probably wouldn't have avoided it!

No head checks, no positioning for road ahead...... Come on Mick you can do better than put your name to that - I agree if that car had moved Cactus - well at least a big swerve across a narrow road.......

Agreed - the intention is good I'm sure, but this was is not nearly as effective as that other one he did:
