The third chapter in Nike’s ‘You Can’t Stop Us’ campaign, a short film of the same name, debuts today to coincide with the NBA’s return to hardwood action.
This third installment is an incredible video comprised of dynamic split-screen footage, putting together the world’s greatest sports superstars with everyday athletes.
Featuring 24 sports and 53 athletes, the spot narrated by footballer Megan Rapinoe celebrates sport as a source of inspiration. Its action shares a dynamic split screen series detailing 36 pairings of athletes and relating the kinetic movement of one sport to another.
Developed through research of more than 4,000 pieces of footage, the resulting montage underscores commonalities shared by athletes around the world.
Seen in the short film are Megan Rapinoe, LeBron James, Naomi Osaka, Eliud Kipchoge, Caster Semenya, Cristiano Ronaldo, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Serena Williams, Colin Kaepernick, and Kylian Mbappé.
Closed gyms and empty stadiums haven’t stopped athletes from pushing forward and using their platforms to help create change. Through those actions, sport shows us what an equal playing field looks like—and reminds us that a better future is possible.
