Nike SuperNatural Running: Review by Larry Eder


Okay, there is some nudity in this commercial. It is tastefully done. The WK team has taken Nike Free and taken it to the nth degree-running supernatural, meaning, in this exercise, running au natural except for shoes on one's feet. David Olds, a top marathoner in the 80s ( I remember him at San Francisco with Pete Pfitzinger from about 1986-7), is the camp coach/counselor/guru. The truth is, David Olds is just being David Olds.

Laura Fleshman, with a guitar on her lap, does her best hippie impersonation, noting that there are some tough trails in the camp. Nudity is not really spoken of, but the scene on the barbeque, and a question by an inquiring runner on size fifteen shoes does get in all the scatalogoical humor, with some semblance of taste. Note the qualification of semblance.

Nick Symmonds does a nice job about giving it one's all, but the award goes to the totally constrained performances of Kara and Adam Goucher. Kara speaks very non chalantly about how they love the Nike SuperNatural Running Camp, and how it takes Adam, who is sitting next to Kara, very naked and very relaxed, " a little longer to come down" from the camp.

Enjoy, you have been warned.
