Nike sanitizes "American Woman"

The lyrics -- written by Jim Kale, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Garry Peterson - include....

Don't come a-hangin' around my door
I don't wanna see your face no more
I got more important things to do
Than spend my time growin' old with you
I don't need your war machines
I don't need your ghetto scenes

The commercial strikes me as tone-deaf; I'm definitely not in tune with it.

But who am I to say?  USA Today thinks it's just groovy.
