Step Brothers (2008)

In "Step Brothers," John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell play two losers still living at home with their parents well into their thirties who are brought together by the marriage of one's mother and the other's father. They don't have jobs, they have bad table manners, they are immature, they're a little dense, and they have juvenile interests, so of course they travel by bicycle. We don't see that until towards the end of the movie, when they are returning from a failed job hunt to show their step/parents that they really are responsible after all. Prior to that, the bicycle makes an appearance as a weapon in a front-lawn brawl between the step brothers.

Boost Mobile Commercial (2009)

It's been a while since examples of The Law have been added to this blog, but that is not due to any shortage of choices, as this commercial for Boost Mobile shows. The woman and her companion are clearly portrayed as losers, she for having ridiculously long armpit hair, he for having a girlfriend with ridiculously long armpit hair and allowing her to tickle his nose with said hair, and both of them for riding a tandem bicycle.
