Nike releases first Colin Kaepernick 'Just Do It' ad

Adjust Comment Print

Nike isn't backing down from its Colin Kaepernick ad campaign - they just released a brand new 2-minute commercial featuring the QB - and it's slated to air during the National Football League season opener.

Nike's stock dropped 3.2 percent on Tuesday, and the new ad inspired a rash of protests, with people destroying the company's products and sharing the photos and videos on social media, according to The Hill.

Kaepernick was the first athlete to kneel during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest police brutality against blacks and hasn't played a game since 2016.

Usain Bolt is shown, while Kaepernick says 'Don't try to became the fastest runner in your school, or the fastest in the world, be the fastest ever'.

"It's unsafe territory to suggest something like that - for me, when I hear 'sacrifice everything, ' the last thing I think about is money", Boyer said to KIRO Radio's Dori Monson. "What the f**k would have happen if he wasn't there?"

Nike revealed on Monday that Kaepernick would be at the center of a new campaign to mark the 30th anniversary of the company's "Just Do It" slogan.

Trump's tweet also referenced the NFL's declining TV ratings and said that he finds it "hard to watch" and "always will, until [the players] stand for the FLAG!"

Nike will feature Kaepernick on several platforms, including billboards, television commercials and online ads. It features ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The quarterback posted a two-minute version on Twitter, in which his voice is heard over images of other prominent athletes, including LeBron James and Serena Williams.

"Don't ask if your dreams are insane, ask if they're insane enough", Kaepernick asks at the end.

I believe in fair trade even if it means sacrificing everything.

"Our policy is that you stand during the national anthem, toe on the line", said Jones.

But someone on the other side of the argument commented: "I can't believe THIS is the guy that @Nike want's to be the "FACE" of their company!"
