Fake! Nike Advert

The Nike Advert making the blog rounds today really is repulsively homophobic, but folks rest assure it's a fake. It's a student created work... STUDENT... so this is what the future of advertising holds?Blatant homophobia?  Sad. Nike has been very fast acting denouncing the fake advert and making it clear they neither commissioned nor condoned the piece. 
Side note- Ballet dancers are bad ass athletes, which i think we already know. It's curious this continued streak of American sports related de-masculization advertising. Feminizing and queering the male subject to promote a sports product as the cure-all is a tired and bigoted trope in culture that should have been done away with long ago.
