I just passed it on to my friend who had to race Carl back in the day. He'll burst out laughing (as did I). He says Carl tried stealin' his girl at one of the meets…so maybe the impression of a little too much sugar in the tank is just a ruse. Who knows what makes this man move? Ha! PS, all the comments on Youtube are pretty funny, too.
There are so many other disturbing things in that video that I didn't even notice the makeup: 1. Carl Lewis in black leotard with belt 2. Backdrop for love song video takes place in a health club 3. Random video clips of long jumping, sprinting, and nautilus machine ab crunches 4. Terrible dancing on exercise equipment 5. Random bubbles showing up for no particular reason 6. Carl Lewis presumably going in to a sauna with an overweight old woman in over-sized sunglasses for hanky panky.
