Check out the new Under Armour ad featuring Gisele Bündchen and then watch the one featuring Misty Copeland:
Aside from being a brilliant advertising creation, I think it’s incredibly empowering and moving. Essentially, they started with Misty and then let out that they were doing another with Gisele. People responded, “A ballerina makes sense, but a model? She’s not an athlete.” Hence, some of those comments you see in the background.
“This incredibly inspirational initiative serves as a powerful reminder of all the amazing things women can do despite the pressures and criticisms we may encounter,” Bündchen said in a statement. “Having the strength to tune out negativity and remain focused on what I want gives me the will and confidence to achieve my goals.”
