Female athletes have been garnering a lot of the attention at the 2012 London Games, but NBC apparently thinks the reason people are watching is because of their bodies and not their abilities.
The network was getting a lot of criticism Friday morning after releasing a video called "Bodies in Motion," a slow motion montage of female athletes set to what the website Jezebel describes as "soft core porn music."
In the video, all of the women compete in scantily-clad sports and the camera angles seem to concentrate on the ladies' specific body parts— i.e. T & A. They also throw in some lip licking and teammate hugging for more thrills.
The video shows only women in bikinis, short skirts and tight uniforms. So if you're looking for any fencers or judoka, don't bother.
It is noteworthy that NBC has not yet released an all-male version of "Bodies in Motion."
NBC did not make the video embeddable and attempts to download the page Friday morning was met with an error message, according to the New York Daily News. A media representative told the newspaper he was "looking into" whether or not the video had been taken down.
