Tiger Woods on new Nike Colin Kaepernick ad: 'It's a attractive spot'

Nike memes

Brady was one of many athletes to like the Instagram post of the first ad with Kaepernick, which Nike released Monday.

US President Donald Trump has been a harsh critic of the protests in the past and told rightwing website DailyCaller that he thought Nike was spreading a "terrible message" with the ad.

Online sales jumped 27 percent from Sunday through Wednesday, according to Edison Trends, a Silicon Valley digital sales and trends research firm.

Woods is a longtime Nike endorser who started with the company on the day he turned pro in 1996.

The video, part of Nike's "Just Do It" 30th anniversary campaign, boasts several young athletes in action, with Kaepernick narrating.

Nike Inc.is taking a beating in the public relations department over its recent foray into politics with their Colin Kaepernick advertisement, but it may be paying financial dividends.




Nike released the full ad campaign, which also features athletes like Serena Williams and LeBron James, on September 6 before the National Football League season opener between the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles. He said, "As much as I disagree with the Colin Kaepernick endorsement, in another way - I mean, I wouldn't have done it".

The bounce recouped 41 percent of the stock's decline since the campaign began and reduced Nike's market cap loss to $2.4 billion. The NFL should have taken a bold stand on this, but they fumbled it badly and now Nike is piling on.

The NFL unilaterally passed a policy requiring players to stand at attention for the anthem or to stay in the locker room or in the tunnel under the stands.

At the start of the ad, Kaepernick says: "If people say your dreams are insane, if they laugh at what you think you can do, good".

Kaepernick had signed with Nike in 2011, but the reveal of the new advert was accompanied by the news that the sportswear giant had retained him on the roster for the last two years, even though he was not competing in the NFL.

The former NFL quarterback who has become famous for his kneeling protests of social and racial injustices during the national anthem stars in the ad, which premiered during NBC's broadcast of the season-opening game between the Eagles and Falcons.
