Mercury production designer Nick Olmstead pointed me toward this hilariously vintage clip in response to yesterday's post entitled "Here's That Fixie Movie You've Been Waiting For." As it turns out (as a few of you B-townies noted), "that fixie movie" was actually made way back in 1986 and called Quicksilver starring the almighty Kevin Bacon. And while fixies may not have always been the main attraction, they are well represented in this pants-wetting Quicksilver clip featuring a fixie dance-off! (Fixie riders: If you guys did this more often, you'd be more highly regarded.)
Thanks for the tip off, Nick and B-town commenters!
