Nike Brand In Free Fall Following Release Of Colin Kaepernick Ad

What did Jerry Jones say about Nike’s new ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick? | Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarter-back, is now without an NFL team after he became the first player to take a knee during the national anthem before a match.

"I feel they can choose or they cannot choose and it's their choice".

Nike's favorability rating has plummeted after the brand rolled out an ad campaign featuring former National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick. "Even if it means sacrificing everything" - a move that was seen by some as controversial. The Nike ad showcases these athletes doing their thing, while Kaepernick's voiceover serves as a reminder that "crazy is not an insult; it's a compliment".

On Wednesday, amid the thick of the controversy, Nike unveiled another part of its collaboration with Kaepernick. "I guarantee they could get more from a smile on a child's face than a symbolic burning of a pair of shoes". "By pursuing this approach, Nike is back in the public conversation - and, yes, they'll create some enemies (that's for sure) but they'll also reactivate their core base - and create true believers".

As the line, "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing something", is read, Colin slowly turns toward the camera.

Tennis legend Serena Williams is also featured in the same series of ads from Nike.

Some shoppers, on the other hand, were more interested in scoring a good deal than taking a stand.

Replying to an official post on the Nike Twitter account which read "Don't ask if your dreams are insane". While Nike may be feeling some heat from critics after the release of the Kaepernick ad, the company has earned $43 million worth of media exposure in the first 24 hours, according to one estimate.

"We believe Nike executives are promoting an attitude of division and disrespect toward America", said College of the Ozarks President Jerry C. Davis to KY3.
