Nike - Leave Nothing



How rare it seems that we get to see a good commercial that's actually on the TV. But several times now I have caught this new Nike spot at the bar while the game is on. It's both simply glorious. And gloriously simple. And while the cinematography, scene transitions, and choreography are amazing, I think there are two things that we can really learn from this spot: Music and Suspense.

They could not have picked a better song. It's straight from that epic ending of the Last of the Mohican's and is packed with passion, drive and determination. But instead of rifles our players carry a football. And instead of doing whatever it takes to save the love of their life, they are out to save the game. Your brain can't help but carry the passion from the film into the spot. And it works.

But the other thing to take note of is the ending. The build up is intense. We want to see the ball cross the line, and the crowd cheer. And in the hands of another agency, we would have. But it ends 3 seconds before it should. It slows down to that moment everyone in the bar stands up. You're leaning in. And then it ends. It's brilliant. Take notes. Wieden + Kennedy, you've done it again.

It looks like Nike is riding on Reebok's coattails. Reebok is the official outfitter of the NFL.

I too am curious why they are allowed to use the NFL uniforms and marks if Reebok supplies them. You can even see the Reebok logo on the sleeves in this commercial.

check out what they have done with nikefootball.com as well. they have some hot animations with jackson and merriman up there too.

Why on earth would Nike use Shawn Merriman as the star of this commercial? He was suspended last season for 4 games because of steroids. Granted, he lead the league in sacks, but beacause he cheated. What message is Nike sending?

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
