NIKE Short A Guy (2015)

Nike North America has released a new commercial featuring star athletes from several sports to showcase the value and fun of playing multiple sports as a young athlete.

With long summer days and lots of opportunity for pick up games that rarely have the perfect number of participants, someone’s inevitably always short a guy. And in a season where you need to be ready for anything nike can provide the gear you need.

Along the way a young athlete plays stickball with MLB MVP Mike Trout and pitcher Garrett Richards, he plays beach volleyball with three time gold medalist Misty May-Treanor, faces off in lacrosse against superstars Lyle and Miles Thompson, he is coached by National Soccer Hall of Famer Mia Hamm, catches a touchdown pass from NFL pro-bowler Andrew Luck and finishes his day at the court with the NBA star Anthony Davis.
