Misty Copeland Shows Off Her Under Armour With a Message

By  |  1 Comment

Just when you thought that Misty Copeland couldn’t get more elegant or inspiring—she did.

The American Ballet Theatre’s history-making star is the newest face of Under Armour and in her new commercial for the brand, she shows what it truly means to find success against all odds.

The Black prima ballerina is seen practicing in a ballet studio with a voiceover playing that reflects a rejection letter that she received when she was 13 explaining that her advanced age and mature body type was not ideal for ballet. The next shot shows her on the main stage in Under Armour doing what she does best—dance.

Like the “RE2PECT” commercial that the Jordan Brand made for Derek Jeter, Misty Copeland’s Under Armour commercial makes her super human ability relatable by showing how much she’s accomplished in her career and in life.
