Woods Calls Nike Kaepernick Ad a 'Beautiful Spot'

Nike releases new ad featuring Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James, Serena Williams

The news, which was announced on September 3, led to an initial dip in Nike stock, but MarketWatch reports that the brand has rebounded with a 31% growth in online sales from September 2-4.

On Thursday night Colin Kaepernick will officially, in front of a national audience, become the undeniable face of the the company's Just Do it Campaign.

Nike has sponsored Kaepernick since 2011 and the advertising campaign marks the 30th anniversary of its "Just Do It" slogan. That percentage was down to 10 percent among millennials and 6 amongst Generation Z. Conversely, a staggering 56 percent of those surveyed said they were more likely to purchase from Nike after seeing the commercial. "Because what nonbelievers fail to understand is that calling a dream insane is not an insult; it's a compliment".

Jones had spent the past five seasons on the roster, including three as Ben Roethlisberger's backup, before being let go Saturday. That's not to say Bouchette is a team mouthpiece, but logic and observing practice led to him putting his assessment out there.

Tiger Woods said on Friday that the Nike commercial narrated by National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick was "something that's special" but added he did not know the company was producing the advert. An obvious reference to Kaepernick's decision to kneel in protest of police brutality during the pre-game national anthem ceremony, and the years of controversy and joblessness which ensued, the pictures immediately went viral, prompting outrage from the far right, including the president himself.

The 90-second ad showed a variety of athletes, including the Lakers' LeBron James and tennis star Serena Williams, and it ended with the slogan: "It's only insane until you do it. It's sad", Williams said of Kaepernick on Tuesday.

James, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump, has shared on social media both an image of Kaepernick from the campaign and the two-minute ad. He has also called Kaepernick a "son of a bitch".

Most notable was the speed with which Amazon hit the milestone, with its shares having more than tripled in the past three years. A major contributor to the company's massive profits has been its cloud business, Amazon Web Services (AWS).

"You have to think beyond what you see around you", Kaepernick says in video posted to social media of his speech.

While many others applauded Nike for taking a risk to make a statement about racial injustice in America. "They came out with a campaign that they feel is who they are".

"Nike is a company", he said. I don't know why they're not enforcing it and in cases where they don't have it, they have a new thing where they don't have to do that.
