Nike Fat Asses?

Does anyone else find this somewhat pathetic?

Not sure what part is pathetic? The ad or the comments?

I hate the word TONE but I love the commercial

For a second I thought this was a new ad, but then I saw 2005.

This one!

Call this ad “reality advertising.”

What part is reality? The author talks about people with imperfect parts but do any of them have a ass like that chick? Hell no.

Nike, Greek Goddess of victory was actually overweight and unsightly.

That is not a pic of a “real” woman. That is a pic of a woman with a nice, tight ass, and what looks like really good legs. On average, women do not look like this. Women who work out or are athletic look like this.

Sounds like this guy is just angry at the fact he’s fat.

I didn’t see anything wrong with that ass at all.

Is that Serena Williams’s behind?

Just found this:

^^ The front of that left thigh is pretty weird.

Not really…

Please let this be the future of advertising.

Why would obese people latch onto that ad as a sign of acceptance? She’s built. I doubt there are too many guys who would find that unattractive except for those who think a completely flat ass is sexy.

Her ass has nothing to do with the asses of people who don’t work out or have 50+lbs of weight to lose like that author.
