The New Under Armour Commercial About Ballet (Yes, Ballet) Is Fantastic (Video)
We don’t usually think of ballet as a sport. In fact, if the half-hour situation comedy has taught us anything, it’s that the ballet is where a nagging wife drags her husband against his will, forcing him to sneak in a radio and headphones so he can surreptitiously listen to real sports, which invariably results in some sort of embarrassing but ultimately humorous situation.
Will this commercial from Under Armour make you think ballet is a sport? Probably not. But it will most definitely make you think that ballet dancers are incredible athletes.
That is all I’m going to say about it, though, because I don’t want to spoil it. Just watch it yourself:
I have a feeling Misty Copeland is probably the first ballet dancer ever to sign an endorsement deal with a sports apparel company.
I’m certain she is your new favorite ballet dancer, because she is obviously amazing.
