Default Bicycling in pop culture music video

Karmin's "Hello" on American Top 40 (www.at40.com) shows her sporting fashion and her love for bicycling at the 45 second mark and beyond.

It is nice to see the prominent use of a bicycle in a video in a manner not showing the user to be a loser, reject or klutz.

Either the videographer has a shoe fetish or they want to repeatedly remind the viewer that the performer is cool because she is riding a fixie. I was watching and thinking "huh was that a fixie? I'll have to rewind... guess it is... back up... back to gear hardware again? Wow are they proud of this bike."

I mean this is a top 40 music video of a young female performer. She is... "easy on the eyes"; the videographer could have gone the traditional route and simply kept the camera POV exclusively on the eye candy.
