I’m a sucker for YouTube series. And tutorials. And reviews. Awkward Black Girl fostered this love and now shows like Part Timers make me a bonafide Stan. I love it so much that I have my own YouTube channel with one lonely public video (I pinky swear I will make more!). However, there is no way I believe someone wants to see me working out. Sure, in my mind I look gazelle-like and could be one of Beyonce’s back up dancers but that’s not reality. So when I came across Nike’s new series aimed at millennials and those who make or lust after fitness videos, selfies, and the like. I think Nike’s new YouTube series Margot vs. Lily may be my new favorite thing.
Nike’s New YouTube Series, Margot vs. Lily, May Be My New Favorite Thing
Margot vs. Lily is a new original eight-episode series that will air on Nike Women’s YouTube channel weekly from the beginning of February, with Nike+ members given early access to the shows. And yes, I’m a Nike+ member so I’m in there like swimwear! Made in collaboration with celebrated filmmaker Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, acclaimed director Tricia Brock and bestselling author Jesse Andrews, Margot (Brigette Lundy-Paine) vs. Lily (Samantha Marie Ware) is about a fitness-obsessed YouTube celeb and her exercise-allergic sister make a bet on New Year’s Eve, and it’s game ON. The series ties in with Nike’s Better For It campaign, which honestly I was aware of but not completely in the know about.
Yes, I may the love-child of Margot and Lily. Oh wait, they are sisters so that’s just plain yucky. So maybe I’m a mish-mosh of Margot since I want to be a YouTube celeb and I’m a recovering exercise-allergic who loves video games that wills herself out of bed because Zumba, yoga, spinning, and running calls to me. I listen to the calls. I don’t necessarily like it all the time but I know it’s best for me. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think.
If the trailer is any indication on how funny it can be, I’ll be watching with
buttery popcorn granola in hand hoping Margot makes friends IRL and Lily creates an alterna-fitness craze for those that aren’t necessarily gifted in the fine arts of YouTube but want to be.
