Because we need more Nike ads

From Jacob Trusheim:



Here is another NIKE commercial; it is from a few years ago.  I am sure most people remember this commercial, it was really popular.  There were many spoofs including a spoof in one of the Scary Movies.  The commercial was NIKE’s attempt to reach out to the streetball segment encouraging players to freestyle and be unique.  The ad includes appearances by some of NKE’s biggest athletes at the time including Rasheed Wallace, Jason Williams, Steve Francis, Vince Carter, and others.  I like the ad because it is simple; there is no talking, no fancy backgrounds, just the sound of the ball and the athletes.  The simplicity of the ad forces the viewer to watch the athletes freestyle and show off their moves.
