SOUND OFF: New controversial Nike commercial

(WOIO) -

A new Nike commercial featuring an overweight Ohio boy is causing controversy.

The commercial features 12-year-old Nathan. The London, Ohio boy is shown slowly jogging down a rural road, while the narration insists that greatness is not beyond his reach. Not for Nathan, not for any of us. 

What do you think? Is Nike exploiting this overweight young man or should they be touted for encouraging people to get physically fit?
