Fitness guru, Shonda Lewis, who appears on Bravo's Millionaire Matchmaker on February 5th and co-author Tony Reynolds spoofed an ad set to appear on the Superbowl telecast on February 3rd, 2013.
"I saw the Gildan ad, "Getaway," in a MediaPost.Com blog and thought it was funny, but very topical for the subject matter in our new book, "Get Fit For Your 50 Shades of Adventure," Reynolds, said. "I said, 'Shonda, we should make a spoof of this to promote our IndieGoGo crowd funding campaign!' and she said let's go for it," Reynolds finished.
The advertisement is Gildan's first entry into the Superbowl.
"I loved the simplicity of the ad, but how it makes a statement," Reynolds said.
