Nike’s “Dream Crazy” Ad, Featuring Colin Kaepernick

On Monday, Nike received praise and (stupid) outrage for unveiling a new ad campaign starring Colin Kaepernick. Now, it’s released the first ad, which will debut during tomorrow night’s NFL opener. “Dream Crazy” is an inspirational 2-minute spot, with a voiceover from Kaepernick urging people to strive hard for their goals: “Calling a dream crazy is not an insult…it’s a compliment.” The spot includes famous athletes like LeBron James and Serena Williams, along with lesser-known ones such as skater Lacey Baker and young wrestler Isaiah Bird. But Kaep is the headliner here, and he’ll get most of the attention. His last words in this ad are especially powerful…”So don’t ask if your dreams are crazy, ask if they’re crazy enough.” Wow. Good stuff, Nike.
