Lightning Bolt

“He was joking on the starting blocks.
He reacted last to the gun.
He ran against the wind.
He didn’t tie his PUMAs.
He jogged over the finish line.
He broke the world record.
And then he danced.
And reminded us that
Being the best should be fun.”

What a simple and great ad and especially the part about being the BEST should be fun. He outshone an otherwise dull and uninteresting track and field event. Heck, he was even given a hard time by the media for "extended" celebration after winning at the Beijing Olympics. But seriously....untied shoes, 28mph and eliminated the world record! Front that.
