The Dutch Reach - Safe For Work, Outside Online Magazine

Outside Online's in-house videography team produced this now viral video within 10 days of reading the first news story about the Dutch Reach. It's title and teasing start plays on the [entirely unintended and unsuspected] of the quirky coined term itself. Apparently 'Dutch' & 'Reach' have connotations which many Millennials suspect and smirk about.  Hence the subtitle: Safe For Work or SFW as opposed to not safe, or NSFW.  After the intro, OO's Fitness Director makes a very graceful presentation.

The video has since been viewed over 3 million times world-wide as of 20 August 2017 - on Outside's home and YouTube portals alone. Outside's viewers voted it their most loved video of 2016, though it only started running 19 September 2016!
