There’s also a companion TV spot that’s a total knockout.



Except it will no longer appear on TV because “U.S. Olympic Committee rules generally ban marketers who are not official sponsors from featuring Olympic competitors . . .  This year’s ad blackout runs from Jan. 30 to Feb. 26,” according to The Drum.

The Five-Ring Circus.
