Skip to comments.Is This an NBC Olympic Video, or an Adult Video Preview?
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?
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.
Meh. I think we often way overreact to these things.
“Bodies in Motion” sounds like something I don’t want Mrs. MAexile finding on my computer.
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.
Oh, fercrissakes. Next go-round they’ll all be wearing burqas.
Some folks have a high internal steam pressure.
McKayla is not impressed.
So “sprunger” is Swiss for breasts then?
I’m not giving yer blog any hits.
Post the entire article of your prescient thoughts and let’s see if the invisible hand finds them.
If your articles are good enough people will flock to your site to learn more.
Gotta put her with Katrina man.
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.
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.
Post the entire article of your prescient thoughts"
You should hit the dictionary.
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.
You say I should hit spellchecker?
I dunno, is she hot?
I don’t know if NBC is gay, straight, or bi. I just know they will go down on anybody, for a dollar!
Now that you mentioned it, I just noticed the banner ad of Shawn Johnson. It shows how much I pay attention to them.
I dunno, is she hot?
Does it matter?
You need to read this note from The Boss.
It’s addressed specifically to pimps, er ...”bloggers” like you.
Read and learn, padawan.
It’s been there throughout the entire Olympics. And what’s worse, there is no way to get rid of it...not permanently, anyway.
At 2AM in the morning....no....
I wasn’t even watching the Olympics when I saw it. It was on Fox Business Channel.
I think most of the criticism comes from people who are jealous.
The video cannot be considered porn because Serena Williams in on it.
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 see nothing wrong with the video or the subjects of the video.Those were some beautiful woman.
I’m outraged, OUTRAGED I tell ya.
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”.
One can go to any lake on the 4th of July and see sexier females!!
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.
Roger that. My reaction was as much to the outrage of the poster as is was to the content of the video.
I had no idea that was porn music any more than Mitt Romney knows what the inside of a whorehouse smells like.
Demonic evil is running NBC, ABC, and CBS. No surprise here.
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.
No. I'm saying learn a word's definition before you use it.
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.
Can we use the word “plagarize?” Word for Word?
Really? It sounds like a Physics course subtitle (or textbook name) too me.
What’s the fuss..all I saw was some healthy young women engaged in high level sporting activities. No porn here..
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.
