Came across this really cool Nike commercial which was made in Australia. As somebody who loves to go for hour long runs of between 10 km to 12 km each, I can empathise with the agony faced by the guy in whether he can or cannot go on. While the title of the ad is Reincarnate, I thought that the way the man behaved in the advertisement bore a remarkable resemblance to a character popularised by a leading fantasy film.
Would anybody hazard a guess who I am referring to? And yes, like the earlier series of viral commercials by Burger King, parody does work sometimes.
Shall I shout out the answer here? 🙂 Well, in anticipation of youngsters reading this post in 5 to 10 years, who may not even remember that the “leading fantasy film” originated from a book, I say go read J.R.R. Tolkien!
