Watch NBC Olympics Thanksgiving promo video
Actress Eva Longoria narrates the newest NBC promo video for the Rio 2016 Olympics.
The 60-second spot features several athletes with their families in their home countries, including:
Simone Biles (USA, gymnastics)
David Boudia (USA, diving)
Genzebe Dibaba (Ethiopia, track and field)
Murilo Endres (Brazil, volleyball) and his wife Jaqueline Carvalho (Brazil, volleyball)
Dylan van Baarle (Netherlands, cycling)
Kerri Walsh Jennings (USA, beach volleyball)
The promo will air on television on Thanksgiving day towards the end of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
“The spot reflects the crucial role that family plays in the journey of so many Olympic athletes,” said John Miller, Chief Marketing Officer of NBC Sports Group. “With the Games being one of the few family-viewing experiences left on television, we felt this message was appropriate for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.”
