Foot Locker – Subliminal Shoe Selling

Here’s an advert for Foot Locker I happened upon in my trolling of the internet. After JB’s lecture on banned ad’s, I wonder wether this would be on the list. Having a look at past Foot Locker ad’s, it seems that they use sex quite a lot to sell shoes, eg. Spank. However the guy at the end of the ad saves it from being totally obvious, with humour. The ad doesn’t work for me as it doesn’t make sense. Why would someone, in a towel, in their bathroom, put trainers on…. not even trying there. What do you make of it?
