Plain and simple: Nike always has had ads that rock. From Bo Knows to the "herd" of trail runners I just saw in their apparel ad, their creativity (or their ad firm for that matter) is second to none.

So what was your favorite?

The lastest one i saw was for their clothing, and had a herd of runners, male & female doing pseudo trail running... it was more like mountian running as they didn't always follow atrail. They moved exactly like a herd of gazzels or water buffalo They even played the sound of a heard in full run for effect :)

Very cool

you guys see what I'm saying? every one y'all ahve listed are clean memories in my head, ones that I really liked... I can't think of one I don't like...

how about the one where tiger woods boucned a ball on an iron and then wails the thing like 200 yds baseball style? Unreal... i read about that ad, and it turns out that was improv; Tiger was jsut screwing around between shots for this other commercial and they let him just go w/ it and they used that footage instead! :D

I like the one with all the runners come out of their houses, various shops, or just off the street, and start running in the pouring rain. All the while everyone else who isn't a runner is trying to find shelter form the rain.

Also, the Y2K ad that appeared showing utter chaos (cause of the whole YSK scare), and yet there were still people running among the chaos.

the one of the athletes warming up was pretty creative. especially since the soundtrack was of an orchestra warming up. get it?
I think this ad was great. The music progresses to the point where it is just going to explode into musical harmony matched perfectly to the point where the athlete begin their competition or sport. Very nice.

I liked the olympic ad too...but I really liked the Presto ads with the french narration and a crazy chicken. That was the best for me!

The presto ads were good... Unholy Cumulus.

Also liked the one where the guy is running around the city and everyone is scattering, hiding behind sh*t... They are playing a game of tag... At the end its the swoosh and "PLAY"

Do you know which ads were really great, IMO?

1) The add with the Brazilian World Cup team passing and dribbling in and around an airport, with Ronaldo, Rivaldo, etc...I thought that add was amazing, and they used a Sergio Mendez 66 song that was just perfect.

2) the ads with Tiger Woods bouncing the golf ball off the face of his wedge in 50 different ways.

3) The ad a couple of year with the different basketball players doing trick dribbles while turning the sound of the bouncing balls in rythms and beats.

4) "IS IT THE SHOES??" :lol:

here's a nother great one i saw recently (on their website): A dude is walking down the street and you see a nike billboard above him featuring a large photo of a shoe... As he walks past the show comes to life, and transforms into a robot, and hops down off the billboard :)
