Ads You Must See: Under Armour’s Olympic salute

Michael Phelps' first farewell and Lane Bryant's rejected ad for plus-sized lingerie

Expect to see a lot of Michael Phelps in the coming months. The world’s winning-est Olympian is prepping for his last Summer Games, and his sponsors would never let such a milestone in American sport pass without some kind of salute. Under Armour has kicked things off with a dark and dreamy look at how Phelps trains, setting the bar for those that follow.

Less dreamy has been the reaction to Lane Bryant‘s latest TV ad featuring plus-size models. Apparently turned down by a few TV networks, the spot features scantily clad women in various poses speaking to body positivity.
