Beat the Pants off LeBron and Serena to Celebrate 25 Years of Nike's 'Just Do It'

Bradley Cooper Narrates Energetic Spot Encouraging the Every-athlete to Strive for More

What can you do? Can you run a mile? Can you dance? Can you fight? Nike says well, that's not good enough in "Possibilities," a new spot out of Wieden & Kennedy celebrating 25 years of the sports giant's famous "Just Do It" tagline. MJZ's Nicolai Fugslig directs and Bradley Cooper gives the kick-in-the-butt V.O. that disdainfully sneers at your sporting accomplishments while playfully teasing you to do more.

Quick cut scenes illustrate a call to action to the everyman athlete: You should be running races, not miles, riding rhinos, not bulls. You should also be beating the shorts off athletic greats like soccer star Gerard Pique, boxer Andre Ward, tennis player Serena Williams, and basketball pro LeBron James -- who all make cameo appearances in the spot.
