VOD2 2012 – The Rocket takes it
Steel City Media; Joe Bieber and Duncan PhilPOD, have just been awarded VOD over on PinkBike. Their advert for Cotic’s latest full bounce creation ‘The Rocket‘, sticks a tongue firmly in the cheek of slow-mo heavy, over produced, marketing mens creations. Instead it shows what Sheffield Talent can accomplish. A great local bike (designed here anyway), ridden by a great local rider (the one and only Swinny) and shot and edited by the TiS dream team. The video also stars Hanna, Joes better half, as the Damsel in distress who, despite the portrayal in the video, is a great rider finishing 3rd in last weeks Hammers gravity enduro.
The video picks up where the last S.C.M.-Cotic Epic, for The X, left off with Swinny leaving his meeting and being summoned on the hot line to help Hanna. This brings out his secret side, his inner hero, Rocket Man. And what would rocket man ride? Hanna??? The Cotic Rocket of course. Swinny tears the shit out of some great local spots to get to the Damsel in time, showing the capability of the Rocket for fast, fun riding. Watch out for the Power Pout and sideways drifting action. Classic Swinden, I can’t believe he’s a Pro, I’m so much better than him #ShefGnar.
The Video has seemingly been universally well received, chalking up nearly 44,000 views to day across all platforms. A great success all round.
This is Bowman and Swindens Second VOD of the year so far, with their previous ‘quicky’ with Swinny picking up a VOD back in Feb.
