Taking on the perspective of a 10-year-old footballer from California, Makena Cooke, the three-minute video explores the young athlete’s ambitions as she dreams about the future of sports alongside women she admires, including the likes of Dutch football player Lieke Martens, Crystal Dunn of the U.S. Women’s National Team and Wang Shuang from China. As the action-packed visual journey comes to an end, the campaign concludes with an empowering slogan: “Don’t change your dream. Change the world.”
The short film marks the next chapter of Nike’s iconic “Just Do It” series, which originated from an advertisement of the sports giant 30 years ago. In the past year, Swoosh has also released a number of other memorable campaign videos, including “Dream Crazy” featuring Colin Kaepernick, “Dream Crazier” narrated by tennis star Serena Williams, as well as “Dream With Us” highlighting the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team.
