Nike Korea’s latest advertisement encourages you to follow the company’s slogan and “just do it” — no matter what the haters say.
The spot features retired Korean soccer star Lee Young-pyo, who plays multiple characters, all of whom essentially tell young athletes to give up on their dreams. He’s the umpire who says, “This is a waste of time,” the onlooker who says, “This won’t help you” and the coach who says, “Learn your limits.”
But this is a Nike commercial, so do the young athletes give up? Obviously not. They roll up their sleeves, lace up their shoes and work harder so they can silence the naysayers.
Warning: if you’re watching this from your couch, it might inspire you to get up and go for a run or something. Maybe.
