What Would You Do

.... What would you do????????

The producers of this beer commercial borrowed a small 150 seat cinema
playing a popular film, and filled 148 of its seats with
rough-looking, tattooed bikers, leaving only two free seats in the
middle of the theater. They then allowed theater management to sell
tickets for the last pair of tickets to several young(ish) couples.

What would you do?

Watch till the end .....

I would have left. If I did drink beer, I would no longer drink that brand. I'm not part of that target market.

It wouldn't have bothered me at all, I'd probably have been quite amused to squeeze into those two seats. But then again, I've been to the Sturgis Bike Rally and know these "biker dudes" are typically pretty cool folks. Sheesh, stereotyping. Besides, a setup like that would come off immediately as being staged, so play along!

Well everyone, those same biker types have helped the Port Alberni Toy Run raise over a million in cash and about 1/2 million in toys for the poor in our area. Denise and I would not have a problem getting to those seats in any way shape or form.

My younger brother played in one of the featured band at the Sturgis Roadshow this past year and we regretted not being able to get there to witness the event. At the 1:10 mark of this video

In my lifetime I have missed opportunities because I was timid and I have walked to the very gates of Hell with eyes wide open. I have no idea what I would do. Course, if someone told me that beer was at the end, I would be there.

I don't drink anymore (my choice) but Thom does. We would have gone in with no problems.
We have been to places that have been known to be hangouts for some not so nice biker gangs. No we are not part of any but they all seem to take a liking to us all the time and invite us to go places with them all the time. Sometimes we do and sometimes not. Some of the best behaved people alot of times are ones that have a reputation of being "bad". On the other hand there have been times that we have come up with an excuse to leave a place early because the attitudes have changed and it just seemed like a good idea.

It's funny - and yes the stereotyping does continue.

I was out riding one day, and my wife called and when I checked my voice mail she said to come to her sisters house for dinner. I did not bother to go home and change.

We were standing around outside and I was in full leathers wearing my red and gold military MC colors. My wife told me later that our nephew came up to her and said, "Aunt E, does uncle Wayne know how much of a bad a.... he looks like?"

Ha! Me! CHL toting nice person that I am.

When we rode in formation, it looked "mean." But it only gets mean for life threatening protection.

I've only had the one "experience" with rough-looking, tattooed bikers that were actually part of the Hell's Angels club. My wife and I were moving from a desert mining camp that we had set up and worked for 2 years. I had a neighbor who was a member of this group that I had befriended earlier. When he discovered we were moving, he had 20 members of his group there to help us. I was asked to stay out of the way and just tell them what to move and where to put it. It was nothing but yes Ma'am and yes sir until the moving van was loaded. There was no drinking and no smoking or course language by this group so I have to say this was a very positive experience. I'm fully aware of the things this group has done or is doing now but I can only address our experience. We would have sat in the seats without being concerned one bit.

If I had gone there to see the show that was playing I would not be deterred from getting to the seats. I am to old to fight but I do have a CC permit and carry a .45 S&W so that the playing field is more equally balanced. Most of these "biker" guys are in reality, just regular citizens who like the biker life when they have time, much like we rv'ers. If you allow yourself to be intimidated by how folks or things may look, you are short-changing yourself IMO.

Probably would have stayed.

Years ago, a buddy and I are on a weekend ride in the mountains. Both riding a couple of non-HD's. (used to be called "rice-burners" but that sounds offensive to me now.) Stopped at a state park to cool off and got invited into a biker party going on. Hesitantly joined in.

Spent most of that evening sippin cold ones, eating hot dogs and playing in a marathon pinochle tournament...
