You know when see an ad that's so good you stop caring that it comes from a big corporation that's just trying to sell you things and just marvel at the impressiveness of it all?
That's the way this new Nike ad feels.
The ad (which Nike calls a "film) is the third the sportswear giant's "You Can't Stop Us" series. It features 53 athletes (both elite status and everyday folks) in 24 sports, shown in a series of split screen moments that blend different athletes and sports into one. Narrated by U.S. Women's Soccer star Megan Rapinoe, the film celebrates sport and the human spirit, with a fitting message fo the moment we are in.
And the overall impact is, well...just watch.
