Ad of the Day: Schwinn

The bike company targets twee millennials

Leaders from Glossier, Shopify, Mastercard and more will take the stage at Brandweek to share what strategies set them apart and how they incorporate the most valued emerging trends. Register to join us this September 23–26 in Phoenix, Arizona.

The bike: It’s cheap, it's "green," and it's the preferred method of transportation among certain twee millennials. (Seriously, Google “Zooey Deschanel on a bike.” There are 13.4 million hits.) But when was the last time you saw a bike ad during an episode of New Girl or Portlandia or whatever the latest show is with girls who like vintage dresses and boys who like bow ties? Seems like a bit of a wasted advertising opportunity.

Kudos to Schwinn for finally taking advantage of the lack of adorable bike commercials with a new series of TV ads targeted at the millennial consumer.
