Bryce Harper Sports Glow-in-the-Dark Under Armour, Clown Gym Clothes, Bro

Do you even lift, perhaps while wearing glow-in-the-dark Under Armour, bro?

It's MLB spring training time, which means those Rob Gronkowski updates and Harlem Shake videos will melt away to Bryce Harper videos. 

The latest is a commercial from Under Armour looking to capitalize on Harper's image as a hard-working, all-out superstar. It even starts with "I don't have 'gears.' I play one way. That's all I've ever known." 

I would agree. He's Pete Rose with a cooler haircut. 

Of course, that's not what will have you talking after this short ad for cool Under Armour apparel. No, it more likely to be that odd moment at the :25 second mark when you realize you have been working out all wrong. 

Sure, you head to the gym and lift to your little heart's content, but have you ever lifted with glow-in-the-dark weights and clothes?

It's so brief you almost have to wonder whether you just saw Harper train in the dark, aided only by the luminescence normally seen at raves. 

The rest of the commercial is your average, run-of-the mill, bigger-than-life stuff. We are meant to believe Harper taking soft toss in an empty field is the biggest event in the history of the world. Fine. 

I just want to know why he went glow-in-the-dark for two seconds, and why my local gym doesn't offer such ambiance. 

Hell, I might even go if they did.
