Canadian Cadbury Lovers Do-Good For Africa

Find more videos like this on AdGabber

"The Bicycle Factory" is an uplifting piece about the many uses of bicycles in Africa. Under the weight of a single enterprising pedaler, one bike can deliver food and water, or play the roles of ambulance and school bus.

Put together by The Hive/Toronto for Cadbury Canada, which is raising funds to send 5000 bicycles to Africa. Whenever users enter a Cadbury UPC at, they're adding a bicycle part to somebody's spiffy new ride. 100 UPCs build a complete bicycle.

Sorry, couldn't resist.


This looks great, but do yourself a favor and pick up the book it's based on "Push" by Sapphire. It's an amazing read. And yes, Mariah is playing a social worker.

"Fuck the record labels who push bullshit wack ass artists down our throats and fudge 1st week soundscan numbers to make it look like their investment was worth it. Fuck the labels for never having their artists best interest at heart. Fuck what the labels say is hot……………."

Dear Jazmine, Not Sure How To Feel About This Commercial

On the one hand I'm happy that she's getting endorsements -- and hey, I like wearing cotton too-- but something about me strikes me as very "Gone With The Wind" for some reason. And don't you dare tell me we're living in the post racial era.
