Cyclist who bikes around Philly with his cat gets a commercial

    It really isn’t fair that the rest of the world doesn’t get to enjoy watching a guy bike around Philly with a cat on his shoulders.

    If you haven’t seen the pair on the streets, you’ve probably seen them on YouTube, where RudiElias86 shares videos of the cycling duo.

    And now, the two will get wider attention.


    The Philly Post reports man, cat and bike are now starring in commercials for GoPro, which sells specialty cameras. So no, not some kind of cat food commercial.

    All we have to say is thank goodness this isn’t an April Fools joke; we wouldn’t be able to take the disappointment.
