    This is great. I love seeing the love courier uniforms from the 90′s, it’s great.

    Ha… love it at 3:42 when that dude is talking about being an athlete as he sips the 40oz. from the brown paper bag… probably his breakfast!

    Wow, “Bike Boy” is a real tool. I love right at the end of the posted clip where he can’t think of a big enough word to use.
