Top 5 Nike commercials

Top 5 Nike commercials

nike find your greatnessAs Nike release their umpteenth commercial, this time featuring Wayne Rooney playing golf with a football (as you do), we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to trawl through the archives and share with you our top five ads from the famous brand. Have we missed any of your favourites? Then let us know by commenting below or via our Facebook page.

1. Good vs. Evil

In our view, the best Nike ads are the ones that feature an array of sporting stars. In this 1996 offering, a bunch of footballers including Eric Cantona compile a European dream team and take on the devil.

2. Take it to the next level

Ever wanted to know what it feels like to be a famous footballer, playing with the likes of Wayne Rooney and living the rock star lifestyle? Using a POV shot this video does just that, immersing the viewer in the big game.

3. Cristiano Ronaldo vs Rafa Nadal

Some of Nike’s best ads are the ones when they feature a skilled sportsperson showing off their talents in something they’re unfamiliar with. In this case, it’s Ronaldo playing tennis with Rafa Nadal, but only using his feet. Easy, no?

4. Defy Gravity

Forget George Clooney and Sandra Bullock floating in space: this commercial goes one better, but with a variety of athletes all mid-air whilst performing their individual skills.

5. Find Your Greatness – Jogger 

This one doesn’t feature any world famous sportsmen or women, no fancy shots, thumping music or editing; just a chubby kid running down a road. Recognise the voiceover? It’s our very own Tom Hardy.
