Shatner is a true Pedego customer passionate about electric cycling
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, California, January 15, 2019 – Pedego® electric bikes today announced a series of new commercials starring William Shatner, who was the guest of honor at the annual dealership conference in December. Shatner, is a true Pedego customer who regularly drives his Pedego for exercise and fun, often with his 15 family members spanning three generations.
“At my age, I’m riding my Pedego electric bike which makes me feel like a kid again,” said William Shatner. “Electric cycling helps me stay active, exercise and spend time with my family. And most of all it’s fun! ”He said. He discovered Pedego bicycles in 2012 at the Pedego store in North Hollywood, where he received his first two bicycles for himself and his wife Elizabeth.
“Bill Shatner proves that age is just a number. Riding a Pedego is fun and great exercise for all ages, “said Don DiCostanzo, CEO and co-founder of Pedego.
Produced by the Los Angeles-based BPG, the commercial stars William Shatner in three scenarios:
- Hunting: Shatner is on his Pedego electric bike being chased by a traffic cop. When the cop finally catches up with him, he asks where Shatner got the bike.
- The doctor: In a doctor’s office with a patient undergoing a proctology exam, Shatner shares that Pedego electric bikes are so much more fun.
- The sensation: Shatner is enjoying the feeling of freedom his Pedego electric bike gives him as he rides with a singing gospel choir.
As an accomplished actor and savvy businessman, Shatner enjoyed getting creative input in Pedego’s “The Chase” commercial.
“I had a lot of fun making these electric bike commercials. It could be said that I have been accused of making them, ”William Shatner said.
“It’s not every day that you work with a legend and an icon. Mr. Shatner not only brings his unique personality to the table, but he truly believes in the product he is supporting, “said Steph Sebbag, CEO and partner of Bgp.” He’s one of Pedego’s biggest fans! And that adds a lot to the story. . We are also advocates of the brand and enjoy witnessing how communities of people are inspiring to go out, have fun and be active. “
