Oh my bad--it's actually a very direct parody of a dancewear spot (which is already ridiculous). Here is another parody that hews close to the language of the original target of satirical attack.

The parodies are wonderful.
I do feel sorry for the original model, who surely did her best and had no idea what she was getting herself into.
