Nike Strikes Again With a New Inspiring Commercial

Published

Nike strikes again with yet another powerful commercial, not only did it feature strong confident women, in the hope of refuting common stereotypes that athletes face, but it also accepted them.

The commercial is actually saying yes to the stereotypes. Want to define all the dreamer women as crazy? Do it, the ad ends with, “So, if they want to call you crazy, fine. Show them what crazy can do.” Because crazy is sometimes good, it is sometimes what women need to defy rules and break barriers.

The ad is featuring superstar Serena Williams as she highlighted other fierce and iconic female athletes, and it is scheduled to air during the broadcast of the 91st Academy Awards.

The commercial featured the USWNT, Sam Gordon, Chloe Kim, Ibtihaj Muhammad and Simone Biles, and Williams for the narration; urging women all over the world to “Dream Crazier.”

The Nike commercial is already going viral online. In just the first hour on Twitter, the post garnered over 9,200 likes and 4,100 retweets.

And over the 4 millions views on Instagram in the first 4 hours!

One of the highlights of ad is also the featuring of a hijab woman, it’s definitely not the first time for Nike to include Muslims but it still deserves the attention.

As a feminist myself, I have loved everything about the commercial. How the narration said one thing and the footage refuted the claim.

It expressed thoughts of every female athlete, and tackled gender-based issues, and that’s why Nike, once again, doesn’t fail to impress us.

Oscars Show 2019 Recap: Highlighting the Best Moments

Published

By

The 2019 Oscars had had its share of twisted events, before the awards were handed out. Starting from the Best Popular Film category that was supposed to happen, then it didn’t, to Kevin Hart who was going to host the event, but then he didn’t.

And also, the four awards that were supposed to be announced during the commercial breaks… but then they didn’t.

It actually turns out, watching the Oscar even without a host, wasn’t as bad as expected! In fact, the evening went very smoothly for the three hours that it clocked. It was definitely a nice save when they had Adam Lambert perform for the audience.

So in case you have missed the show, here is a full recap on all that went on during the Academy Awards, and its highlights.

First the winners list:

Best Picture: Green Book

Original Song: “Shallow” – A Star Is Born

Animated Feature Film: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Actor in a leading role: Rami Malek, “Bohemian Rhapsody”

Actress in a leading role: Olivia Colman, “The Favourite”

Director: Alfonso Cuarón, “Roma”

Production Design: Black Panther

Costume Design: Black Panther

Sound editing: “Bohemian Rhapsody”

And for the best moments:

Lambert’s Performance  

Adam Lambert performing ‘We Are the Champions’ by Queen, this entry surely made it up to the crowd who had no host for the show! They were up on their feet, as the tunes of Queen came blasting through the speakers.

Best Emotional Moment

When Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga locked eyes during their brilliant performance of ‘Shallow‘, together they delivered a very emotional performance which was the perfect celebration for Gaga’s win for Best Original Song. Proving once again, that if there is anyone who’s capable of making a crowd tear up, it is definitely Lady Gaga.

The worst follow up is them not kissing, and I believe all fans agree!

Best Speech and Quickest Cry 

Another emotional moment by once again Lady Gaga, as the announcement came for “Shallow” as the Best Original Song, Gaga bursts into sobs, once she composed herself, she blessed us with yet another inspiring speech “It is not about winning, but it’s about not giving up. If you have a dream, fight for it,” she said. “There’s a discipline for passion, and it’s not about how many times you get rejected or you fall down or beaten up, it’s about how many times you stand up and are brave.”

History Makers 

Ruth Carter won Best Costume Design in Black Panther, Hannah Beachler won Best Production Design, prior to their win, only one African-American had won an Oscar for a category other than acting, and after their victory, they have tripled that statistic.

“Marvel may have created the first black superhero, but through costume design, we turned him into an African king,” Carter said. “I give the strength to all of those who come next, to keep going, to never give up,” Beachler said shortly after.

And Rami Malek’s win, makes him the first actor of an Egyptian descent to win the prestigious award, which is another breakthrough for Arabs.

Most Awkward Moment 

Rami Malek falling off the stage is definitely in the category, after winning the award for the Best Actor for his role in Bohemian Rhapsody, but shortly after he slipped off the stage and clumsy people everywhere are totally relating.
