I do so hate it when commercials make me cry. It’s as if those ad agency mindbenders sitting around the boardroom table, drinking coffee and talking really fast, had my profile on a clipboard in front of them. And then, when they wrapped it up, they said ‘We’ve got her with this one!’
And Nike got me with this one.
As much as I would love to know what it feels like to grow wings on my feet, Hermes-style, and fly across the finish line along with all those other super humans, I would love it even more if those super humans could experience the race from behind the mid-packers. I think maybe one of the Nike mindbenders working on this commercial is from behind the mid-packers.

And, just for good measure, what I wish I looked like in my Nike FlyKnits!
