    [VIDEO] Nikeís new ad is an editing marvel and itís breaking the internet!



    Amid the uncertainty of Covid-19 pandemic, with no clue when normalcy will return, Nike has dropped an ad that has left many inspired with the thought that ďNothing can stop what we can do togetherĒ.

    With a tagline ďYou canít stop sport. Because you canít stop us,Ē the video is giving hope to people in such trying times, especially when there has been cancellation and postponement of sporting events.

    The ad highlights the power of sport and how it has the ability to bring us together and become agents of change. With a powerful narration and with an equally stunning voiceover delivered by Megan Rapinoe, the ad has transcended all boundaries and achieved what it aimed to do ó bringing everyone together.

    From fighting against everything that is unfair to taking responsibility to make the world a better place, the poignant 1-minute-30-second ad touches all the right notes.

    ďYou canít stop Megan Rapinoe, Serena Williams, or Lebron James. Just as you canít stop Naomi Osaka, Cristiano Ronaldo or Leo Baker. Because as athletes*, we are never alone. Sport unites us. Strengthens us. Keeps us pushing ahead. No matter what, we will always come back stronger, together,Ē the company wrote on YouTube while sharing the video.

    The advertisement created by Wieden + Kennedy Portlandís team put 72 sports action together in 36 split-screen slides, merging actions in brilliant editing, and the results are outstanding.

    Reminds me when they made that London diversity advert but they excluded Asians in it.

    Does it matter?

    Like, I didn't even notice it or paid attention to until you mentioned it.

    I prefer to focus on the message instead of scanning each and everything through the lens of political correctness.
