The Seattle and Portland offices of Cole & Weber/Red Cell have teamed up to produce a series of very potent images in a co-op print campaign for Nike's Retail Resources division. We've never seen jump roping portrayed with quite such a sheen of pure eros before, compliments of photographer Markku Lahdesmaki. Even the less sexy ads about baseball and running are gorgeous. Contortionist yoga is always a turn-on. As for the notion of a hottie knocking the stuffing out of a heavy bag, we call this pure genius.
