Check out Nike's latest "Just Do It" ad featuring Colin Kaepernick.
Nike's 30th anniversary "Just Do It" campaign went viral this week, thanks to a simple black and white image of free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick along with the caption, "Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything." The polarizing ad has been the topic of discussion all week as supporters and Nike boycotters have taken to social media to weigh in on the ad, which is part of a much larger campaign meant to specifically speak to 15- to 17-year olds.
"We believe Colin is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward," Gino Fisanotti, Nike's vice president of brand for North America, told ESPN.
"We wanted to energize its meaning and introduce 'Just Do It' to a new generation of athletes," Fisanotti said, per ESPN.
The latest spot in Nike's 30th anniversary "Just Do It" campaign was revealed today and it features a video with a voiceover by Kaepernick. In it, Kaepernick references several star Nike athletes including LeBron James, Serena Williams, Shaquem Griffin, Odell Beckham Jr. and others. According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, the new ad will air tomorrow during the Atlanta Falcons vs Philadelphia Eagles game.
