This Teyana Taylor Reebok Classic commercial is reminiscent of the grainy workout videos that were once popular in the 1980s.
The 25-year-old Harlem-born recording artist and actress functions as a narrator at the beginning of the ad, as she tells her audience what the brand means to her. Specifically, she mentions the "54-11s" as a favorite, which are also known as the Reebok Classic Freestyle His -- "the first fitness sneaker that was specifically designed for women."
As energetic music blasts, Teyana Taylor poses seductively in a striped red bodysuit, leg warmers and of course, Reeboks. At first, the Teyana Taylor Reebok ad is filmed in a gritty style, however about halfway through, it switches to high definition. This combination makes the nostalgic inspiration clear, as well as the brand's longevity. By transitioning to high definition shots, Reebok shows its successful progression into the current market.
