"Nike believes in the unique power of sport to move the world forward. Nike's mission as a company is to bring the world together through sports, to strengthen active communities, and to create equal opportunities for all athletes. However, Germany and many other countries are facing a challenge: kids give up any sporting activity at an alarming rate. To make sport and play regain their importance, Nike dedicates the new chapter of its Just Do It campaign, titled 'Du tust es nie nur für dich' ('You never do it just for yourself') to those communities and athletes that go beyond the next goal or medal. The campaign from Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam portrays Germany's new heroes and their inspiring stories. The hero spot was directed by John Hillcoat through Serial Pictures x Somesuch.
Helden features a new generation of German athletes, who work hard on and off the pitch, on the track and in their communities. They go beyond winning to pave the way for others.
We believe in a world in which everyone can become a hero, leveraging the powerful platform sport provides to those who speak up.
You never do it just for yourself.
Just do it.
