In the video, a man on a bike, with a megaphone in hand, rants against “plonkers” people who would spend £300 grand on a car: he’s standing in front of a Rolls-Royce Wraith parked on the double yellow lines. Such “silly” purchases could be prevented if friends of these people would just step in and “take away the credit card,” he says.
“Is this really necessary?” the cyclist asks, while passers-by stop to film him, cheer him on or tell him to shut it. He continues telling the car owner that he would be better off on a bike, just like him, which would mean getting some “much needed exercise and not do so much damage to the ozone layer.”
The hilarious part is that the Rolls-Royce owner is not even there so, even if the cyclist is right in everything he says, he’s wasting his breath. Or putting on a show for passers-by, more like it: as it turns out, the cyclist is street activist / performance artist Danny Shine, who has been a fixture on the London streets (with his megaphone) since 2013.
Ironically, last year he was found guilty of being a nuisance by causing too much noise, so he announced he was retiring. Having been proven a criminal by the system, he was hanging up his “boots,” he said: so he sold his megaphone.
Shine also seems to have a genuine hate-on for Rolls-Royce. Also at the bottom of the page is a 2-year-old video of him in London, picking on Ron Stewart for buying himself a Rolls when he could have given the money to a family in Africa and bought a Chevrolet instead.
