Nike Free: I would run to you.

And hand you a toothbrush so you could scrape the saccharin off of your gums.

Nike spells twee with a capital T in this spot for Nike Free Run+. It's a duet between a man and a woman in a Long Distance relationship who have made a pact to run across the country to be with each other. Except the man craps out early, ends up in the hospital like a pathetic schmuck who can only lay in a heap until his lady woman shows up to smother him with kisses and cause his EKG to go on the fritz.


Nike Free, I would run to you.

It's excessively sweet. So sweet I am picturing the day when She and Him cover it.

Unlike adidas' recent "We All Run" effort, which showed Katy Perry's "running," this spot actually suggests women can run better than men.

And hey, what's a better reason to run than for love? Especially if it ends in an EKG rise.

Here are the lyrics. They may cause sugar shock, so read accordingly.

Woman: You're so far away.
Man: You're so far away.
W: Ain't got too much pride.
M: Want you back by my side.
W: Well baby I want that too.
M: And baby I would run, run to you.

W: I would run to you.
M: I would run to you.

W: The first time you talked to me.
M: I knew we were meant to be.
W: And when we finally embraced.
M: Baby, I can't keep this pace.
W: I love you. There I said it.
M: I think I'm gonna need a medic.
W: You filled the hall with flower petals.
M: Why does my mouth taste like metal?
W: Baby I might die without you.
M: Baby, I might die.

W: I would run to you.
M: I'm not as strong as you.
W: I would run to you.
M: I (unintelligible heavy breathing) to you.

W: Love is a speeding comet.
M: I'm in a pool of my own vomit.
W: Love is a perfect vision.
M: This was such a bad decision.
W: Love makes everything serene.
M: Give me all of your morphine.

M: (Spoken)
Baby, I know we said we'd run across the country to be together, but I thought we were being symbolic. Why can't we fly, and meet somewhere in the middle? Like Kansas City? It's the Paris of the Plains...

W: Baby I love you so much that I would run to you.
M: You would run to me? You would run to me!
W: Baby I love you so much that I would run to you.

Together: I (you) would run to you (me).

She doesn't even break a sweat. Yep.

If she didn't break a sweat, she's not doing it right.
