    Sorry if this is already on here somewhere. And apologies moddy for not putting this in the Olympic thread.

    But Nike did outstanding here with this commercial. Enjoy!!

    Marvin is my hero.
  3. No problem with the song, but dude, the entire video is in slow motion.

    A lot better than their HyperDunk campaign.

    Kinda hated it.

    Not a big fan of that version of the anthem, or any version in which the singer turns it into a remix. And the basketball footage was nothing special.

    Just didn't work for me.

    Would have been better as an Olympic commercial had they used athletes from different sports rather than focusing on the most over exposed athletes in the world.

    Decent commercial, but Nike has done much better.

    The Tiger Woods commercial with his father during the Open beats this commercial like a French leg.

    Heck, Tiger juggling the golf ball on his wedge beats it.

    Fabulous commercial. Ranks among the best that Nike has ever done.

    I don't care if he's Marvin Gaye, singing the anthem is not about YOU. We don't want a soul anthem, a country anthem, a R&B or a hip hop anthem.

    Just sing the damn thing in a minute and get off the damn floor/turf/ice.

    That goes for O Canada.

    Nothing terribly creative about the commercial

    Agreed. And where was Tay-Tay didn't even see him in the commercial?
