For some reason I've become engrossed with this today.
They are struggling and took a hit when they aligned themselves with crossfit which is a pretty controversial workout regimen. I'm not really sure stirring up negative publicity was a plan. People who were complaining to Reebok via email all last week over the ad were sent out responses from the company that they didn't approve or create the ad then basically did a 180 today and admitted they made a mistake. Pretty much they admitted to lying. I'll see if I can find a copy of those emails that were sent out. I did see one on Facebook.
