NBC has decided to stop airing its “Bodies in Motion” ad after it has been deemed “creepy” and incurred a backlash.

The online video shows close-ups of female athletes’ “bodies in motion,” featuring what some are calling “softcore, fetishist slow-motion highlights” with “porn-tastic jazz music” in the background, according to SFGate.

The clip shows the female athletes “spiking a volleyball, jumping off the starting block, and everything in-between,” according to NBC.

The girls are scantily clad in their swimsuits, track suits, tennis wear and other revealing dress, and the images of them are taken from angles that focus on their breasts, buttocks, abdominals and thighs, which encourage the viewer to watch their bodies rather than their sport playing.

The Team USA ladies have won substantially greater amount of medals than their male counterparts, 23-to-10.

Highlighting their accomplishments was a great idea of NBC, but it is argued that the network should have featured those actual accomplishments rather than their accomplishments.
