Need a sports bra after the beating? I might no longer be part of the young-mainly-student-clique, but this series is completely beyond me...can someone explain the "sense of fun" in this process, I'm lost...

My take is that they're going for a cheeky way of showing that without a sports bra the girls are getting black eyes from their breasts flouncing about whilst they engage in sporting activities. I'm sure this will provide plenty of unwanted backlash.

Woah...ok, nicely spotted and not as bad as I thought. But not very clear, is it obvious to everyone else?
