Confession: we’re still not quite sure what Zumba is.
Many face the same dilemma despite the fact that the company “counts 15 million weekly dance class participants in a 180 countries worldwide.” For this reason, Zumba enlisted 180LA to remind viewers what it’s all about, and the resulting spot — which debuted yesterday — is energetic enough to qualify as a public health hazard:
The main concept here is to promote Zumba to the public at large rather than catering to the sort of “gym junkies with unattainable bodies” that you might meet at, say, a Diplo set in L.A.
For the record, we also appreciate the presence of “nightclub bouncer” and “pudgy middle management dude” to subtly counter the idea that Zumba is a strictly-for-women phenomenon.
