American Apparel has teamed up with "exercise" photographer of the '80s Ron Harris to create a tumblr. The page explains how AA fished the collection out of Harris' personal archive, which includes VHS tapes, 35 mm slides, and laser discs of sundry Aerobicising happenings. The company then refashioned them into videos and GIFs and sifted its merch alongside them in a tumblr, which doubles as a tribute to monochrome spandex from the '80s and beyond. Hop after the jump for the product of this... Of this.
