Oh just take a freaking walk and stop asking for a Nobel Prize already
"Every stumble keeps me humble?" Um, really? Then why are you, and all the other women in this ad, talking as if you deserve some Great Humanitarian Award for going outside and taking an f--ing walk???
I walk between eight and ten miles every day. Without these sneakers or whatever you're trying to sell me, and without expecting someone to write poems to my awesomeness. After watching this ad, I'm starting to think that the woman in the Good2Go Insurance Commercial who proudly explains that she chose food for her kids over the luxury of car ownership might just deserve a medal after all. I mean, she didn't even mention walking among her many admirable qualities. I'm sure wondering where my Congressional Medal of Honor is. I had no idea that putting one foot in front of the other was such a rebellious, in-your-face act, but then again, I'm male and single- maybe American women have been told that they can't take walks because that's just Not Something Women Do? If that's the case, continue to Aim High, Sister!
And I apologize for mentioning that I walk a lot. Just my white male walking privilege showing, I guess.
What the hell is this commercial about, anyway?
