Video Review: Rain Radio & DJ Craig Gorman “Talk About”

A twentysomething man pops a wheelie on his bicycle as he rides bicycle on the road. Cars turn to the left lane to avoid him. He and his several friends look at the cars on the expressway as they stand on the bridge. They ride their bicycles on the bridge and pop wheelies. A thirtysomething man shakes his hand as he and his friends arrive at a building.

One of his friends pick up the traffic cones. A second twentysomething man swerves on his bicycle. He and his friends walk up the steps with their friends. The twentysomething man discusses where they could go next in the subway. They get on the subway and talk. At night, one of his friends walks on the side of the bus as he rides his bicycle. They ride through a tunnel. A second twentysomething man falls as he rides his bicycle.

Several police officers watch the twentysomething man and his friends as they ride their bicycles. One friend rides their bicycle on the escalator. A third friend wipes out as he tries to fly over some bicycles. They sit together on the concrete, the skyline behind them. In the parking lot, they sit on the bicycles and stare at the buildings at night.
