Staying fit at home can be tough. Staying motivated is an even bigger challenge. With “Play the for the world,” Nike celebrates all home athletes during this difficult time.
As all sports events have been canceled, seasons halted or never begun, and all of us asked to stay at home, staying fit and motivated has become a challenge for many.
Space is limited, equipment is scarce, and the whole situation and its economic consequences can weigh enormously on our mindfulness and the well-being of our families and communities.
Following on its “Play for the World” message, Nike is back with a simple, yet strong message of solidarity: ” You can’t stop us” is the brand’s new 60-second spot in which Wieden + Kennedy Portland compiled still and video footage shot at homes.
The spot features world star athletes including LeBron James and Nike-backed talents like Somali boxer Ramla Ali plus beach volleyball star Sara Hughes. But the message appears to be one of unity, a beacon of hope and a celebration for all of us.
It got me motivated.
