In the Play-New retelling, from the female perspective, Nike is revisiting the international campaign that advanced the London, Olympics. Shinning a spotlight on the female perspective, with new attitudes for new times.
Was the revisit designed to combat toxic masculinity in sports or was the female version simply overlooked by filmmakers and marketing alike...
“Girls are not commonly encouraged to pursue a serious professional career in sports if anything they could have a hobby and watch the boys play.”
In a series of sport-specific shorter films, designed to ignite conversation around how athletes everywhere find their own greatness.
The new advert features two female leads whose who are not professional athletes, there are no boys watching them, they are two women playing for fun, playing for themselves. The commonality is not focused on winning a competition but on how you play, using character as fuel to measure greatness.
