What do you think?

I recently came across this advertisement: . . .

It seems like that girl took a class when she was 3, and that's it. What the voice over is saying doesn't match what I see at all! Horrible! Why would you dare to go on TV saying you are a pro, when you don't even know how to position your arms?

As she says, "At this point, I just let myself go and I don't think about what I'm going to do. I just do it"...and it shows. She fakes it and most people are impressed by someone who goes on pointe. She seems like a model who took some ballet dance training. They really could have gotten so many accomplished dancers to do this!

That advert has been around for a while and Free People have fairly much been ripped to shreds for it, even non dance people have posted mickey takes, you'll notice there are a few linked on the side bar. I don't feel there's a lot more to be said that hasn't been gone over already.
