This Omar Salazar Nike commercial is otherworldly to say the least. With many elements borrowed from the science fiction genre, the ad is a great example of Nike’s creativity when it comes to marketing its product.
The Omar Salazar Nike commercial represents what would happen to space travel if it got into the hands of skateboarders. Salazar is shown doing an array of tricks on board a makeshift spaceship. Although he is seen floating around the craft to make it look like he is actually in outer space, the most gravity-defying moments in the commercial are when he rips off his various tricks. The professional skateboarder gets so much air at times, you start to question whether or not the ad was actually filmed on Earth.
The Omar Salazar Nike commercial will be one of many leading up to the release of his shoe, the Nike Omar Salazar LR.
