Is This an NBC Olympic Video, or an Adult Video Preview?
Mental Recession ^ | 08/12/2012

Posted on 08/11/2012 10:00:21 PM PDT by rustyweiss74

A producer at NBC recently decided to make a video called "Bodies in Motion", showing off Olympic athlete's bodies in various states of competition. Unfortunatley, the music production department chimed in, adding uber-creepy porn-like music to the clip.

Critics slammed the network for what seemed like the blatant sexualization of athletes competing for Olympic gold.

NBC promptly pulled the video, but left us wondering - What were they thinking?

Via LiveLeak:

Someone at NBC Apparently Approved This Creepy, Porny Video of Female Olympians.

Have you barfed yet today? Get thee to a drain of some kind before watching this video the pervs over at NBC have put together in order to show their appreciation for Olympic bodies of the 2012 London Games.

It’s the fault of: both former President Bush’s, Ronald Reagan, Rush Limbaugh, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, and man-made global warming! Glad to get THAT out of my system.

I was more bothered by NBC’s pro-gay piece profiling the Australian diver. Most sane people don’t give a damn if he’s queer yet NBC thought it necessary to tell the world.

I am wearing out my Tivo’s Fast forward button with this Olympic crappy NBC coverage. I zap EVERYTHING except the finals. Don’t give a damn about preliminary races and I don’t watch any athletes profiles or what they did in a prior olympics or trials or world meet etc.

This is the MSM attempt to get more viewers with the “OMG I Can't believe we did that!!!” by condemning it while at the same time promoting it.

It is just self made controversy to try and make themselves news worthy. The MSM is dying and they are doing everything they can to hang on to life support.

I'm a Tivo owner also. Have you seen Shawn Johnson's favorite video?

NBC's coverage blows. Add the inescapable banner ads provided by Tivo and the entire thing has really been unenjoyable.

Why blame the network for the choices athletes make in their sportswear? It’s not like networks have never before made montages of athletes to music - it’s just been going on as long as I’ve watched sports.

Blame the athletes for the crotch high shorts. And freaking hugging each other and patting each others’ bottoms every damn play.

I haven't seen the video. I don't see any banner ads on my Tivo when I am watching.

During today's coverage on NBC I fast forwarded for 30 minutes before they showed any footage at all. Then I saw it was 10 meter platform prelims so I fast forwarded until the "real" competition began.

The Shawn Johnson banner ad pops up every time I pause. I thought everyone was seeing it. I have a lifetime subscription so they know I can’t cancel. Maybe that’s it.

I’m trying out this Nook by Amazon. A friend’s father recently passed away and he gave it to me.

I know there is a spell checker in here somewhere but haven’t found the setting yet.

It’s been there throughout the entire Olympics. And what’s worse, there is no way to get rid of it...not permanently, anyway.

Welcome to another thread on FR trashing the athletic human body.

I think most of the criticism comes from people who are jealous.

The video cannot be considered porn because Serena Williams in on it.

adding uber-creepy porn-like music to the clip

I must be missing out, probably because I skipped the whole porn phase. The music did not make me think of porn, just elevator music. As for the video, there was certainly a bias toward beautiful athletes, but it seemed to be about their grace, fitness, and athleticism, not wardrobe malfunctions. I don't see a problem here.

I watched the video with sound off — maybe it’s me but I didn’t see much to suggest the protest is valid. Other than the rather queer butt pat of the beach volley duo Just didn’t see nothin to protest. Maybe the protester preferred watching everyone in Islamic gunnysacks?Just think protest overrated—maybe they were just having a bad day?

I have been recording every days events all day long since the Olympics started, and with my remote I have skipped every interview and event I was not interested in, just this morning I was reviewing last nights show and I had to skip a very long segment all about London during WW2, I’m sure it was necessary to show it but guess what NBC, the times are a changing and we have the power at our fingertips to have “choice”.

I change channels whenever Bob Costas is on - what a condescending, no-talent creepy snot he is. He makes my skin crawl. Any of those puff pieces they have are totally cheesy - I just want to see the events. I quit screaming “NBC sucks!” after the 4th day, but my opinion about their coverage remains the same.

I am disappointed that I have not seen the more obscure events like the shooting competition, it would have been nice to have tapped the BBC instead of being a prisoner to NBC and its ideology.

I was thinking that if the Olympics ever returned to their classical dress code, i.e. full nudity, it’d be ratings gold for them. Obviously, there are exceptions.

The video would never be seen as soft porn if the female athletes were a bit more modest in the outfits they wear. NBC did not choose the outfits and the music is just bad music. There needs to be a return to modesty.

Come of to think of it I bet this video was put together by the one and only straight guy at NBC. He has probably been fired, and the whole network is now 100% certifiably pure queer.

Really? It sounds like a Physics course subtitle (or textbook name) too me.

skimpy..but nothing that we don’t see every day at the beach.

I don't know what all the fuss was about; I was just commenting on the name: it really does sound like a Physics textbook (or section) to me.
