Leave Nothing

Nike has a great reputation for makes some of the best commercials. They lived up to their expectations last year w/ their "Leave Nothing" campaign...

Two of my favorites...

First up is the commercial directed by one of my favorite directors, Michael Mann. This commercial stars Shawne Merriman (San Diego Chargers) and Steven Jackson (St. Louis Rams). The song is called "Promentory" from The Last of the Mohicans.




The next commercial is made by the man behind the genius of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, David Fincher,featuring LaDainian Tomlinson (San Diego) and Troy Polamalu (Pittsburgh Steelers). The song is called Ecstasy of Gold from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

i remember when i first saw both of those commercial i was glued to the tv. i can not think of a company who puts out better commercials. it does not make me want to buy their product, but i do not think that they are always pushing the brand, sometimes it goes deeper than that.

like with these commercials the message is more inspiring than "come buy our stuff".
