Nike gets Tiger, Rory, Wiesy, Barkley, and Bo Jackson all in one 30-second ad

February 26, 2015

There's no shortage of star power in Nike's new commercial for its Vapor driver with Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Michelle Wie, Charles Barkley and Bo Jackson making appearances in the 30-second ad. Those are some heavy hitters.

In the clip, all the athletes ponder why they would change drivers before the final message "There's Always Better," explains it to them. OK, so it's not the most original sales pitch. But we still enjoyed the spot, especially the "you can get a little better" line about Rory and the "you, sir, can get a big better" to Barkley. Give it a watch:

Also not original? Having Bo Jackson say "Bo Knows" in a commercial -- not that anyone minds. More than 25 years later, there's no reason to change that.
