'Levis 501 Jeans' Commercial circa 1992 pays homage to the 1968 move: "The Swimmer" which stared Burt Lancaster.
Yes, swimming, swimmers and pools are sexy. Why isn't there a reality show based on swimming and swimmers? Have you seen the crap on Discovery channel as of late? Sons of Guns, Ice Truckers, Deadliest Catch, Pitchman, American Chopper, and soon a show about launching anvils into the air with dynamite.
Let's be serious, there are men out there whose chests are wider than their wastes, who don't smoke, don't have to compensate, and are both strong and graceful in a sport that could almost 1/3-of-the population if they accidentally fell off a docked boat.
On a ranking of 1-to-10 with a ten being best, I give the commercial a 10. It's colorful, sexy and very "Americana."
