Editor's Bike Commute Caught on Video (Eat Your Heart Out, Michael Bay)

Cell phones have clearly taken any remaining magic out of videotaping your life, but there is still one area that may still hold some of that excitement. I will call it the Michael Bay Moments (although Peter Berg may be stealing his thunder).
