Nike #SummerIsSerious Campaign

Dig­gin’ these cam­paign videos that Nike has been putting out. The head­lin­er is Kevin Durant; with a bit of help from James Hard­en. Both ath­letes of course are stars, not only on the court but off.

I like how the play the game. They stay hum­ble, and let their game talk for itself. Mon­sters.

Nike #KobeSystem VII Campaign

This cam­paign was ran by Nike in the first quar­ter of 2012 for Kobe Bryant’s shoe­line, the “Kobe VII”. Can’t beat humor and mega-stars.

Update
Nike Bas­ket­ball seems to have tak­en down the cam­paign videos from their YouTube chan­nel.

KD Vs from Nike iD

I was this close “>” to get­ting them Air Jor­dan XI “Play­offs” aka. BREDs dur­ing yesterday’s release by Nike. But, no cook­ie for me. It would’ve been my very first Js. For real.

I nev­er got into the AJ game as I couldn’t afford it going to school. That, and Js won’t do well in Track & Field, and Base­ball.

A wise friend told me once, try­ing to put things into per­spec­tive cost-wise, “you know how many Del Taco soft tacos you can get with that?“1 =)

You Can't BEAT LA

This year, they released a bit more of an aggres­sive (but hilar­i­ous) design using the same style of typog­ra­phy:

Of Hamsters, and Blake Griffin?

It’s not news to most that KIA has been pro­duc­ing awe­some car com­mer­cials for the past cou­ple of years now. They have been boost­ing up their mar­ket­ing dol­lars with cre­ativ­i­ty and humor; and they have the increase in sale num­bers to prove it. Whether the star of the show are char­ac­ters from Yo Gab­ba Gab­ba, ham­sters, or a bas­ket­ball star on the rise—Blake Grif­fin.
