“Bring your game,” is the tag line for Nike’s newest spot, which debuted on Christmas Day with a special five minute commercial featuring their full slate of Nike athletes, most of whom are playing on X-Mas. This isn’t really a commercial, so much as a novella where an adorable foursome of kids go around spending time with Nike basketball players to decide who is their favorite.
LeBron James, Elena Delle Donne (of the WNBA’s Chicago Sky), Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis and Paul George all spend some time with a pretty cute foursome of children who start the spot off arguing about their favorite players on the local stoop (seriously).
Our favorite was probably Kobe’s meditation section with the kids. When Mamba reveals the shark tank — sans shark — one of the kids rightfully asks: “Where’s the shark?”
