Nike has released its commercial starring Colin Kaepernick — as well as Serena Williams and LeBron James. Nike released the commercial on Wednesday, following this week’s announcement of a partnership between the two that prompted boycott threats as well as criticism from Donald Trump.
… The ad, narrated by Kaepernick, showcases various inspirational sports-related stories, including amateur athletes such as a football-playing homecoming queen and an Ironman participant who lost 120 pounds and recovered from a brain tumor. Professional athletes, including Serena Williams, LeBron James, and the Seattle Seahawks’ Shaquem Griffin (whose left hand was amputated when he was young), are also featured.
… Kaepernick is shown only in the closing seconds of the commercial, wearing a turtleneck and a tan coat. The ad concludes with the words “It’s only crazy until you do it. Just do it.”
