NIKE "Vapor Trail" TV spot
Motion Graphics, Consumer
In this spot from Wieden+Kennedy's Portland and Tokyo teams, there is something moving insanely fast out on the pitch. It’s creating a legendary trail of carnage in its wake. It’s pulling up the grass, lifting defenders into the air and taking the stadium with it. What could be moving at this uncatchable speed? The Vapor Trail is the story of one incredible act of blazing speed, to remind everyone that the Nike Mercurial Vapor IX boot is fast.
