Another Corporation, Reebok (Adidas), Jumps Into Politics – Against President Trump…

President Trump created a stir amid his political opposition when he was reported to have told French first-lady Brigitte Macron: “you’re in such great shape“.   Apparently, according to the ever-pliable rules of the virtue signaling political left, it is “sexist” to compliment a woman on her physical appearance.

Of course it didn’t take more than a news cycle for yet another corporate entity to jump head-first into the opportunity to attach their own brand-image to anti-Trumpism.  [Adidas is the parent company of Reebok]  The hypocrisy behind this opportunistic marketing endeavor/virtue-signaling is stunning.  Here’s the tweet from Reebok:

(link)

As you can see, Adidas/Reebok have made a political decision.  Virtue signaling your superiority in defining what is/isn’t appropriate is never a good look.

You would think the loss of brand value for companies who previously did this (Macys, Starbucks etc) would be enough to stop any reasonable corporate marketing head with a fiduciary responsibility. Alas, the allure of scoring cheap political points finds another victim.

However, when contrast against the actual marketing image of Reebok, the outcome is even worse.

Reebok is specifically stating that complimenting a woman based on her appearance is “sexist” and “inappropriate”.

Sexism?

Inappropriate?

OK, well let’s check out the latest Reebok commercial (WATCH):

.

Or how about the print advertising for Reebok:

Oh, these are only the PG-13 versions. There’s full naked female imagery within the European Reebok AD campaign.

Somehow using a woman’s physical shape to create a marketing brand is ok. But pointing out a woman’s physical shape, born out the success of applying that marketing brand approach as an outcome, is… well, “inappropriate”.

Tell a man he’s in great shape and it’s no big deal; no-one would even think twice of it.

Tell a woman she’s in great shape and it’s an immediate crisis.

Yeah. Gender equity. Huh?

Anticipate a diminished brand value to Adidas and Reebok as an outcome.  Financially position yourselves accordingly…

I know I’d be impressed enough to remark her casual athleticism PC maggots be damned ! But let’s face it, any compliment by our President to any female is going to “misconstrued” by a hate-filled media.

        If your paper’s editorial position is as bad as mine, you can write letters to the editor – said letters WILL BE published – or just skip the editorial section.

    This is all marketing.

So it makes sense they’d be buttkissing their equally vapid anti-Trump political preferences.

    I’m a Yuuge Trump fan, don’t get me wrong. A supporter from day one and to this very day. But I gotta say: I wish President Trump would stop making [stupid] mistakes like this. Sure SD is right to point out the double standard [and there certainly IS one]. But we could avoid the battle altogether if PDJT was [just a little?] more polished. Because frankly in today’s world, even I cringed when I heard him say it. Not because it is ‘in itself’ horrible (it’s not). But because I knew how 90% of the world population would PERCEIVE it and the firestorm that would surely follow.

    Mr. President, we LOVE you and would vote for you a hundred times again. But, please, THINK for just a half-second before you speak and before you tweet. Thank you, sir.

Heck, while he was at it, why didn’t he say something like this to Macron: “You know, Manny, I think the French aren’t nearly as arrogant as people say they are”. You have to have some sense of what is appropriate and what is not. What he said to Madame Macron was not.

          • Yeah, I do like to receive compliments for my looks. I even miss those days when I was young and men did the ooh-la-la whistle when I walked by. At a summer job at a factory as a teenager I sometimes got whistled at when I walked by. It made me feel pretty and appreciated, which was really important to me. I was being bullied at school and called all kinds of names, including nasty comments about my looks. I was a tall, thin, kinda pretty blue-eyed blonde with A cup breasts and at school boys often called me a plank, referring to the size (or lack thereof) of my breasts. It felt good to notice that in the outside world there were men who thought I was pretty and even sexy. It didn’t bother me that the men were my dad’s age, because their reactions gave me hope that one day I’d be able to meet guys my own age who’d find me pretty too. At the factory I was just me and my dad’s daughter (he worked there too) and my status as a school outcast didn’t affect their reactions to me. I felt empowered when I managed to get the whistles just in my regular jeans and T-shirt. I really appreciated the compliments those whistles expressed. I’m sad that current generation of girls and young women are taught to get offended by compliments. They’ll never know how good it can make you feel.

          Going further, Trump understood the downside completely. That’s his specialty. His weighting of priorities was correct – Macron, Brigitte, France, USA, rest of world. He took a rigorously and completely calculated hit with the (mostly) AMERICAN public to make a better relationship than was otherwise possible with Macron, Brigitte and France.

          And now we see the real Joe, the establishment repub who likes to pay a pennance to the PC police. So “properly” is defined by the PC left for Joe. Sundance just showed you above how hypocritical the left is by showing you the Nike commercials. The greatest gift Trump has given us is to show everyone on the right that we never again have to cower from the left and their PC nonsense.

          When Roof murdered people our side as usual, felt the need to pay a pennence, a fine by removing southern pride symbols like the confederate flag. But when Kate Steinly was murdered, did the left pay a pennence by backing off on sactuary cities? NOT ONE INCH, NOT ONE MILLIMETER did they back off their position, they NEVER EVER EVER pay a pennence.

          Fina;;y we have someone on our side who NEVER cowers or allows the PC left to define what is acceptable. YOU DO allow the PC left to define for you what is acceptable, obviously.
          There was NOTHING wrong with what Trump said, PERIOD!!! if their was then show us the rule book and let’s see who decided it was innapropriate.
          The biggest gift Trump has given us so far is that he has shown everyone on our side in the future that they can WIN by totally cramming that PC crap right back down their throats. The entire question for our future is if our side will learn from his lessons.

          So in all your nonsense spouted in the end you offered NOTHING but PC opinion and CLAIMED what he said was innapropriate. Then you back your garbage up with hilarious insults of trailer park stupidity. We see by the comments afterwards who most everyone agrees with, don’t we? Trump did NOTHING WRONG, and in fact the more UN PC he is the better for our side.

    Reality check. A question. Or maybe a few.

    When people say that a compliment means we are “objectifying” women – how do they know? Are they reading our minds? Why do they have a right to tell me my intent?

    Is the problem too many compliments about beauty – or is it actually too few compliments about brains and courage? It seems that the left’s attacks on all women but their own – their mockery of brave women who don’t agree with them – leaves little room for compliments of any kind.

    The feminists have proven themselves to be terrible judges of character, even trying to foist a criminal on us as President. Why should we listen to them on anything, let alone our culture?

      It’s sour grapes from people whom nobody would compliment in a million years. They can’t *stand* it that there are people out there who get compliments, so they mouth their old-maid high horse and preach at the rest of us. Qu’ils mangent la brioche!

      That is funny! Our First lady looks so fabulous. Ms Macron, not so much.

      Anyway, Reebok can forget about me ever buying their stuff. It is really foolish to ignore how many people voted for Trump, and then think that we would ever tolerate someone like Reebok dissing President Trump.

    So I want to see cartoons, videos, funny clips of Reebok being made fun of. If you have any funny one-liners, or images that would make fun of this company , go to town. 🙂

    Seeing that sexist stuff Reebok puts out as commercials that Sundance just showed, whoever owns stock in Reebox might want to sell the stock fast, because Trumpers will come knocking on this company for putting down our President.

    I love Adidas running shoes. However, this will definitely make me look for another brand the next pair. Corporations need to wake up and STAY OUT OF POLITICS, at least visibly. Just make the best product you can and people will buy it.

      I think that’s the whole point of their PC proselytizing. These global corporations are pushing shoddier products, made of cheaper materials in sweatshops. For the same prices as back when the products were quality, and Americans could make a living wage producing them.
      Remember how products like Craftsman got brand loyalty by making good tools? Now these corporations put out a political platform instead. They can’t sell as flimsy sneaker as a sneaker, and compete with Walmart. So they sell it as a belief system.
      I believe in God, not corporate logos.

        Perhaps true. I can’t remember when I last bought Reebok so I can’t comment on current quality but they were not too good way back. Adidas running shoes, on the other hand are not cheap and you pay for it. I emailed them my “recommendation” that they reign in their people’s political comments and stick to making shoes.

    Reebok always sucked, they quite literally disintegrate within a year. Always went with Nike’s instead which lasted years.

    Marketing Creatives are liberals. Liberals think with emotion not logic and the emotional side of the brain is typically elevated with artistic folk. It is best to have a balance between your right and left brain but some allow emotion to dominate and they disregard logic.

    One can easily see that Mrs. Macron is uneasy about her appearance. Some have suggested she may have an eating disorder.
    On top of that, she is a Frenchwoman. The country that brought the world Brigette Bardot.
    Donald Trump was not boorish enough to assume that what plays in Peoria is the same standard that applies in Europe. He is much more sophisticated than that.
    A woman who goes to as much trouble as Ms. Macron, to keep a trim physique, not only deserves but EXPECTS such a compliment.
    Does anyone think that Melania wasn’t garnering many flattering remarks about her appearance? How rude would it have been, to be dismissive of the other woman at the center of the events?
    Sheesh.
    These people who claim to be all about ‘diversity’ are insisting that their one size fits all paradigm be applied worldwide.
    Who asked them?

      THIS!

      The way a woman dresses is a demonstration of her pride in self.
      This is a woman especially proud of her legs. Now one need not say “great legs with a leer” as a compliment but a general compliment with a non-threatening smile is not likely to be taken amiss outside the arena of SJWarfare.

    I don’t want to be a hypocrite, so I’ll say it right here. I think Reebok’s ads with the semi and unclad women are beautiful pictures of beautiful women. That being said, I just sent an email to Adidas corporate telling them that as much as I liked, trusted and depended on their GSG-9 boots and loved the comfort of numerous pairs and models of Reebok trainers, I would not be purchasing their products any longer. I specifically stated that Keen and New Balance were my next stop on the interwebs to purchase footwear.
    I also mentioned that I’ve been a customer of theirs since 1972, but no longer.

    I have to admit I cringed a little bit when President Trump complimented Mrs. Macron’s physique — but for a different reason.

    I think it was condescending — not because it was sexist — but because it was obvious BS.

    If there is anything we know about the President, it is his taste in women. Brigitte simply is not a 10 or anywhere close to it in his book.

    President Trump was trying to be polite but Mrs. Macron is so obviously past his “sell by” date when it comes to women that it just came off as awkward.

    ‘You’re in great shape…beautiful.’ is a pretty good icebreaker, I think. Considering the stress on the Macrons, with the worlds eyes upon them, it must have been a relief to have something so ‘bold’ to respond to! I’m sure it gave Melania and Brigitte something to talk about.

  33. I am not for or against President Trump on this but what will you expect when a similar comment in corporate environment will land you in “sexual harassment” trouble? I am sure there has to be some background to the comment our President made that is not public knowledge – my conclusion is based on – I don’t remember which state of head visiting the white house had equally impressive spouse as our first lady and our President did not compliment her.

    Having said that, according to MSM, THIS is perfectly “presidential” –

    Frankly this “presidential” thing is so irritating. I guess it is “presidential” to encourage ideologues to ruin Thanksgiving dinner or to comment that a cop doing his duty acted “stupidly”.

      While it your statement may be correct, it shouldn’t be. Context is everything and women are being short changed on honest, non-aggressive compliments because no one dare say anything anymore.

    So…isn’t the whole purpose of their product – running and athletic shoes and apparel – to encourage and assist people to get “in great shape?”

    So why should anyone bother using their product if it is sexist or inappropriate for someone to even notice and acknowledge that their product has been successful?

    Won’t even go into the hypocrisy of their advertising.

    I guess it would have been just fine if the President had said: “You are in such great shape…you must be using Adidas products when you workout.”

  39. I looked at it closer. They set up the shot with all clear windows, and have a P.O.V. shot from outside the window as she romps though the place naked. And when she leans out of the shower door she gives a knowing smile and glaces to her window as if knowing someone was watching. You could say this ad encourages Peeping Tom.
