Really America?

Happy Wednesday Night! Wow you have no clue how happy I am to say that because wow, just wow this really REALLY is the never ending week but that is not what we are here to talk about.

I am here to talk about the new Nike ad. Just in case you don't know what ad I am talking about here it is:

I don't understand what is wrong with this ad?  I took a few marketing classes in college because it is what I thought I wanted to do with my life one day and this ad has everything that any good ad would have and then some.

Some people say that this is Nike using this kid to make fun of him, others say that this ad is just a joke, and then there is all kinds of crap all over the Internet.

Really America? I love LOVE love this ad.

This ad is telling people all over the country to get off their fat buts and do something to find their greatness. That greatness is not something that just some people are born with, it is something you work for and that anyone can have it.

I find this ad to be inspirational.

I find this ad to be a push that I need because if that little boy can do it why can't I?

I find this ad to something everyone needs to see!

And yet people all over the country who are fat and out of shape have a lot of negative things not just about this ad but about the boy who was brave enough to take part in this ad.

I don't understand what is wrong with this country.  People are not only attacking Nike for trying to inspire you (and yes sell shoes) but also the boy who was brave enough to be "that fat kid" in this commercial.  I hope this boy really does go on to find the greatness within and change his life for the better.

Everyone who has a problem with this well I hope you just change the channel, don't ever buy any Nikes, and keep doing whatever it is you have been doing and don't change your life. 

I am not a fan of Nike shoes, my feet are to wide I tend to love Adidas but hey this is still a great ad.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

This was my favorite ad during the Olympics, I agree with you that it's so inspirational! I have so much respect for anyone who gets their butt of the couch and does something, anything, active and it's important for all of us, especially kids, to understand that these athletes work hard for what they achieve, they aren't just born with it.
