USA olympians form different sports are running through the airport and on a Dreamliner 787, desperate to catch their plane, I guess, because airports suck. Still it's fun to watch Dartanyon Crockett, Kerri Walsh Jennings, Carli Lloyd, Simone Biles, Missy Franklin, Logan Dooley and Ashton Eaton do their stuff. Nice touch updating the Gershwin theme (which United has been using since the 1700s) to give it that Brazilian flavor. Then again, it's not the first time something like this has been done. It reminds me of Nike's World Cup ad from 1998 featuring, what else? The Brazilian soccer team running through the airport and playing their sport,in a charming way, all set to a cover of a Brazilian song-- Sergio Mendez'"Mas que nada."
