The one minute version of this commercial is all over my television lately, and since the song has been beaten into my brain, I tried to figure out what it’s a cover of. My research brought surprising results: It’s not a cover. It’s an original song written specifically for this ad, and the actors are actually singing. I am impressed. Here’s the full version:
The other reason I’m writing this is because twice in the last few weeks I have been asked to name a celebrity that I liked/had a crush on. I couldn’t come up with anything even close to a current answer (I think I may have mentioned Winnie Cooper). So my new response is going to be “the running redhead from the Nike commercial.” I guess she’s not quite a celebrity yet, but she does have an IMDB page. Her name is Stephanie Lynn, and it seems as though she’s also a little bit of a crunchy Vermont hippie girl musician. Here’s her website.
Also, from what we’ve learned about both of the characters in that 2:30 long video, based on personality, clothing, running ability, looks, etc; she’s clearly too good for him, right? Leave a comment and let me know what you think, or tweet me @LucidSportsFan.
