Nike Unveils “Just Do It” Campaign For Russia

Today Nike unveiled a new “Just Do It” campaign for Russia. Aptly named “Play Russian”, the campaign portrays the harsh Russian winter and heroes the athletes that keep moving to defy the cold. The campaign aims to inspire movement in the streets of Moscow, and around the country, building momentum around the Winter of Sport. Physical, digital and social media activations will inspire and enable athletes at any level to live out their Russian spirit, even when the temperature drops far below zero.

Nike Tries to Get Canadians to ‘Play Less Nice’ in Latest Spot by Weident+Kennedy



In Nike's 'Play Less Nice' campaign, Canadians play down the nice guy/gal role to show off their competitive side. Conceived by Weiden+Kennedy and filmed in Vancouver, BC by veteran director Keith McCarthy of Stink Films, the campaign features some of Canada’s top athletes like snowboarders Mark McMorris and Spencer O’Brien, elite 800-meter runner Melissa Bishop and Vancouver Canuck star Bo Horvat.

The various creative spots starts with an everyday Canadian athlete going on a training run. While not in training mode, the Canadian man is polite and generous, having helped an elderly neighbour take out the trash. But once he begins his training routine, things become very different. The spot's premise is intended to show the stark difference between a Canadian's sport and non-sport personas.

The 'Play Less Nice' campaign has nine different versions of the same 90-second commercial. Knowing that sports fans are often subjected to the same commercials multiple times during a sporting event, the brand wanted to create an ad campaign that evolves like a storyline wherein the main character becomes increasingly more focused on winning and, thus, less “nice”


Wieden+Kennedy’s creative director Chris Groom notes that, in fact, the creative was guided by the campaign’s large media buy, with the goal of adding longevity to the campaign by keeping viewers engaged throughout their campaign run. See four of the nine spots below and see if you can find the subtle differences between each ad!

Play Less Nice: 'You Must Be Canadian' Nice


Play Less Nice: ‘Excuse Me, Out Of My Way’ Nice


Play Less Nice: ‘Not So’ Nice


Play Less Nice: 'Friendly Competition' Nice



Play Less Nice: ‘Grandmother’ Nice
