Some kind of Audi sedan. It really stands oot, eh?

[UPDATE: If you people on this shot actually got just straight-time minimum wage and you went over eight hours in one day, you should have been paid more, just saying…]
Now when I say stylized I mean non-naturalistic, ala Soviet Realism or some old propaganda poster series.
But instead of selling The Revolution, Comrade, we’re selling shoes (and the Nike Lifestyle) to women.
Man, I can just see the crew coming up from Los Angeles* County, scouting out the locations, hiring the fitness models (not just models, fitness models, who don’t look very 415 to me), checking the weather forecast and then heading out all over the City, and then it’s clickety clickety at 11 frames per second on a full-frame SLR camera* (a Canon or Nikon, one or the other) after telling the models to hop ever higher, and to pose this way and that way until it’s time for post-production, when some other crew picks out the “perfect shot” out of thousands and thousands and then we end up with this series of “aspirational” shots.
Who runs like this, everyone from head to toe in Nike Gear? Not anyone IRL
Does Nike really “run” SF? Mmmm… I’m thinking these shots are from some other shoot. Very stylized, nevertheless:
Who exercises in tandem like this? Not anyone IRL
More of the same
N’sync! Did somebody have a clapper metronome to keep all the models in sync?
And what’s this?
Don’t real people look straight ahead or down when they’re jogging? Yep, but not in the Nike Motherland, Comrade. We’re Looking Forward, Towards The Future!
Very SF, but I hope they didn’t have to shut down this block for Nike. (Assuming they did this right before the weekly street sweepers came by.)
Very SF, but not a good place for jogging
And here we go again, in triangle formation, to fulfill some dude‘s vision
IDK, perhaps this aspirational fantasyland looks great Down South en LA or Up North in Oregon, but it looks a bit funny, stylized, over the top to somebody from the 415.
Why not use real women 100% from San Francisco next time, Nike?
*One assumes. Just guessing here. Prove me wrong!
San Francisco Viral Video: An Uptown Tenderloin Thief Patiently Waits to Steal a MacBook Air – Blonde vs. BrunetteMonday, April 7th, 2014
This one’s gone viral, this coffee shop video.
Watch the last part first and then watch the whole thing over again:
Note the thief’s ridiculous get-up. Is she really a blonde? Is that a wig under the beanie hat?
Note her dime store purse – see how she asks her original mark to watch it for her, you know, to establish a trusting environment?
And of what use is a MacBook without its expensive power cord?
But I’ll tell you, millions of people will end up seeing this video of the Tenderloin District of San Francisco, up there at Post and Taylor.
The victim feels that SF is “an amazing city otherwise.”
“UPDATE: If you have any more information about the girl in black and white, please reach out to the San Francisco Police Department at (415) 315-2400.
Case Number: 140281005
I am a freelance iOS developer. I live and work in San Francisco. A total tragedy happened to me yesterday. My virtual limbs (aka MacBook Air and iPhone) were stolen at a local coffee shop on Post st. and Taylor st. in SF Downtown area. Months worth of creative work I stored on my device will be lost forever, if I can’t catch this girl and get my computer back. Click here for new New Updates
PLEASE SHARE THIS POST AND HELP GET MY COMPUTER BACK!
Video found at : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbrzOLh8Eb4
Location: Post & Taylor
Time of Crime: April 4, 4:35pm (The time in surveillance camera is 12 hours off)
At 3:20pm, This blonde thief comes into the coffee shop and eyes my computer.”
And now a word for the trolls:
“Thank u thank u. All my friends and good Samaritans out there who are helping me in my effort to get my computer back. Had a few people on YouTube and Reddit who claimed they know her. Yay!
The thief still remains at large. Any tips will be appreciated.
On the side note, too many trolls are flooding the posts with hateful comments and are distracting people from finding this thief. Most of those people are putting blame on me. Calling me stupid and deserving to have these expensive electronics stolen from me. I know I shouldn’t have left my computer unattended but I had false sense of security because I go to the same coffee shop every day and I know every single employee and regulars who were there when the crime happened. But how can a decent person defend an apparent thief who came in with one motive in mind, which was to steal someone’s computer. The thief sat there for an hour looking around to find her target and did not hesitate to take advantage of the opportune moment. This could happen to anyone the moment you drop your guard a little at a public place. I’m determined to find this thief for the principle of the matter and hope that no other coders/designers/any other techies around the Bay Area who love their computer more than anything fall victim to this bottom feeding scumbag bitch.
One more note, I got all my codes backed up unlike some trolls bashed me about. What I lost is some of my illustrations and most recent personal files.”
