I’m not trying to be the perpetual naysayer here, but this is seriously the stupidest ad I’ve ever seen. “Jumpin’ Jack Flash!!!”Uhmmmm…what? Like…what!?!
Thanks to bandwagon jumpers Merrell for putting this ad out in Mens Health magazine. Way to portray Parkour in such a respectable light. As if I don’t already have a hard enough time explaining to my skater friends what I do. “Yeah, it’s kinda like skateboarding, but without the board so it’s a lot easier. We call ourselves Traceurs, organize ourselves into clans, shop for active-wear at Sport Mart, and oh…we like to grab our feet in the air and yell ‘BLAWAHHHHHHHHHHHA’”.
