A Really Cool Nike Commercial

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!
