Nike released an interesting video after the United States women’s national team won the World Cup against the Netherlands on Sunday.
In the ad, it’s talked about the women strive to be champions and all that good stuff. Obviously, there’s nothing wrong with that at all. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Hottest Women On Instagram)
I think most Americans are agreement that our women’s national team is as badass as they come. However, there’s a line in there that is just outrageously dumb.
“We will be four time champions and keep winning until we not only become the best female soccer team, but the best soccer team in the world,” the voiceover states. Give the full video a watch below.
This whole ad was awesome up until the last part of the line above. The best soccerteam in the world? Why can’t we just celebrate the women’s team for what they are? They’re the greatest women’s program to ever exist.
Are we really hoping they become the greatest team ever? Is that something people think is actually possible?
I love the women’s national team, especially my girl Alex Morgan, but let’s cut the dramatics. If the women’s national team got on the field against Germany, Brazil, Portugal, France or the US men’s team, they would get blown out of the water.
