First look - Nike 'Play in the Now' campaign

By: | Thu 16 Jan 2014 | Comments

With the first piece airing on January 25th, “Play in the Now” is a series of TV spots that takes a humorous but pointed jab at golfers who are afraid to try new technology and, as such, reject advancements in innovation. The  United Kingdom the spot will debut on Sky Sports’ coverage of the Dubai Desert Classic, January 30th with Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods participating in the tournament - as well as later in the season on Sky Sports Golf and Premier League coverage.

The “Play in the Now” takes a snapshot journey through the different eras of golf technology. It makes a stark distinction between the change-fearing golfers of yesteryear and what it takes to move the sport forward.
