Nostalgic Sports Commercials

Nike and Movie Producer Spike Lee Have Joined Forces

— May 17, 2022 — Fashion
Nike and Movie Producer Spike Lee have joined forces for Nike's 50th-anniversary flick. As a filmmaker, Spike Lee has directed numerous basketball movies, such as 'He Got Game,' starring Denzel Washington and star NBA player Ray Allen.

Spike has had a long relationship with Nike which includes multiple partnerships.He has a shoe with Nike called the 'Jordan Air Spike 40', and multiple versions of the 'SPIZIKE.' Spike directed the 'Think you've seen it all?' advertisement, featuring actress Indigo Hubbard-Salk. The film is only a minute long but is filled with questions such as what-ifs and comparisons of athletes from different eras.

Spike reminisces about all-time great athletes such as Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods during the flick. Hubbard-Salk gives Spike a much-needed sports lesson and reminds him that we have great athletes today, such as tennis star Naomi Osaka and NBA player Ja Morant.

"Look OG, no disrespect, I know you think you've seen everything, but you ain't seen nothing yet. Checkmate!" says Hubbard-Salk just before the commercial ends.
