Fun — Nike shows us some naked running in new commercial

Although we’ve written about running in the nude before here on, I don’t think we ever thought that we’d see some of the top American runners in the buff doing there thing. Nike has brought us a new commercial that does just that.

The commerical, which promotes the Nike Free running shoe, takes us to a fictional high-altitude training camp called “Bear Butte”. The catch is that all of the runners are running in the nude. Of course, for the sake of showing the spot on TV and the Internet, some digital protection has been applied to keep us from seeing their. . . private parts.

The spot features many top runners including Lauren Fleshman and both Adam and Kara Goucher in a funny closing to the sport.

    That is my long run attire. No chafing. I always assumed that this is the reason nobody picks me up when they see me struggling through a 20 miler. HAHHAHAHAHA 🙂

    Mildly funny. The jokes were predictable. I will never buy any Nike products, however. Their record on human rights is abysmal. See, for example, Naomi Klein’s “No Logo” or the documentary “The Corporation.”

    I can’t think of anything more liberating than running naked. Wish we had more of these events all across the country.
