"An explosive pair," noted the internet users after seeing the XXXIII Summer Olympic Games promotional clip, set to occur in Paris in July and August. The ad features the world's fastest man, dynamic athlete Noah Lyles, and captivating actress Lily Collins.

In the promo, Emily assists with the design of the American sprinter's outfit, set to be worn during his performances at the Games. However, the outfit, a brainchild of the fictional designer Pierre Caudault from the Netflix series, is impractical. We observe that Lyles' field of vision on the track is notably restricted.

This amusing clip was produced for NBC TV, the network airing the Olympic Games in the USA. US viewers face a unique challenge this year, as most live sports events will be broadcast late at night or early in the morning.

Conversely, Netflix viewers will have to wait slightly longer for the fourth season of the lighthearted "Emily in Paris" than Olympic fans will for the Games. The premiere of this much-loved, though also polarizing, series is anticipated for the end of this year.
