Those Creepy Nike Ads

POST #    1609

Has anyone else seen the Nike advertisements for Nike Pro Brand Apparel? If so, please tell me you find it really creepy too. The ad, which you can watch and download from their site, features six athletes - Albert Pujols, Mariano Rivera, Ladainian Tomlinson, Brian Urlacher, Tori Hunter, and Ben Roethlisberger - who are all wearing the various Nike Pro apparel while in some room with creepy music on in the background. Add that to strange masks that they are wearing and you get a pretty scary advertisement.

Effective though, since it got my attention, but I'm not sure that I'll make a purchase as I don't really have a need for form fitting athletic wear right now.

It's definitely one of the weirder Nike ads. They are going for the whole tribal warrior mask thing, I really like it. But I have to say for all of the masks, Brian Urlacher's barbwire mask is the creepiest.

That Urlacher mask kills me. If he's wearing that mask, who should be more afraid? Me or him?

Love that commercial, music is great as well. Makes me want to run out and buy Nike Pro stuff, and strange masks.

look at those hairy arms.. my boyfriend doesnt have hairy arms like that, but his face kind of looks like that mask... so in a way, it isn't so scary
