America Is Falling In Love With The Chubby Kid In This Awesome New Nike Ad

via Business Insider:


Nike is not an Olympic sponsor this year but that hasn’t stopped it from borrowing interest in what it takes to compete in the games. The result—this thoughtful, unexpectedly moving video of an overweight pre-teenager, Nathan, forcing himself to run down a lonely road in London, Ohio—is fantastic. Note that it’s filmed in a single, unedited take.


Check the comments section under the video:

To me, this is the best ad nike has ever done.

This kid is a f—ing champion

Genius ad. Absolutely genius.

And so on.

Here’s the spot. Nike’s lead agency is Wieden + Kennedy.
