If a big corporation can do evil, it can also do good. This is an example of the latter.

Cool move by Nike with Kap. New commercial has Kap, Nyjah and Lacey. Will be on TV tomorrow. Nike ain’t dumb though, they calculated they will win more than lose from this.

Are there multiple versions of this ad, with this one being the extreme sports version? If not skateboarding got a lot of shine in it, like pretty much the same level as football/basketball and more than athletics/soccer etc.

Honestly the execs at Nike & Adidas must laugh when they sign skater's contracts compared to their other athletes.

I was impressed with Nike for signing Kaepernick, but they ruined it by signing Nyjah.

Also, I'll just leave this here:

As said before, a flawed company doing a really good thing.  Good marketing strategy with risk and simple politics involved.


Not to turn it into one of thos threads, but we all know of the sketchy allegations against nyjah, he ruined the commercial for me.
only in skateboarding is putting an adult in a position where they might have to actually work for their income "ruining their life"  ::)

Kaepernik is a douche and a mediocre player, he shouldn't be shocked he isnt playing. Great ad campaign as far as looks go but to say he is "sacrificing everything" is a huge stretch. Having said that, I will only be burning 1 maybe 2 pairs of nikes with my "not a flamethrower" this weekend, not because of the ad campaign, purely because theya re old shoes and I want to burn shit.

Nike needs their controversial figure since losing Kanye and finding Adidas making major cuts into their market share. I guess Kaepernick was the best they could find and in all honesty its a great ad campaign aside from the blatant irony.

I can't help but wonder what the ultimate blowback will be with the fact that a consumer cannot make any purchase decisions anymore without having to choose a side, from seeing a movie to buying a pair of sneakers. I imagine people will end up getting sick of it but for right now that seems to be the reality we live in and these 'hype' based business strategies seem to be resinating at least in the short term.

These made my day.

Is Nyjah included in this because he has to overcome wearing tights and t-shirt dresses while he skates?

His fashion sense does bust some gender norms.

Why do you all think they released this ad now, waiting almost 2 years after he did his little kneel?

To me, and it might seem obvious, but it seems much more of a calculated marketing decision rather than an honest solidarity with Kapernik’s protest.
