Awhile back Under Armour posted their ridiculous trailer for this expedition.

I can't find the trailer any more. did Under Armour get enough negative feedback and comments that they took it down?

Does anyone know where to find that trailer again. I was in need of a laugh and was trying to show it to a fried that doesn't believe that someone is gonna climb Everest in 8 hours for the children in Nicaragua.

He appears to have removed the videos and downplayed most of the initial bravado that he started with.

I can't find the video either.

Mission 14 has been very quiet since their initial media blitz. The response from the climbing community (not just on this site) was very negative, and the comments on the video and FB page reflected the general outrage regarding this ill conceived, and quite possibly fraudulent, endeavor. In response, Mission 14 has removed ability for users to post on their FB page, disabled comments on their videos, re-written the website and will not respond to any questions about the "mission." They will still take your money.

I am hopeful that this boondoggle is losing traction and will not become a reality. Spending $5.6 M to haul this fraud up a cliff is a travesty. Claiming that this is somehow benefitting children in need is disgusting.

Nick, I hope you are reading this. You should be ashamed. You are truly a vile person.
