Last fall, Nike celebrated its 30th anniversary for its iconic Just Do It marketing campaign. The year-long journey to inspire the next generation of athletes enters into its next phase with ‘Dream Crazier.’

In the spot, Nike continues to champion female athletes and change the game for women in sports. ‘Dream Crazier’ is the start of a journey celebrating women in sport ahead of soccer’s biggest moment in France this summer, the Women’s World Cup.

The spot features a compilation of moments by some of the greatest athletes in the world and shines a spotlight on female athletes who have broken barriers and inspired generations of athletes to chase after their dreams, including Simone Biles, Ibtihaj Muhammad, Chloe Kim, members of the US Women’s National Soccer Team and Serena Williams, along with rising stars and young female athletes. The film is narrated by Williams, who takes offensive statements of female athletes and turns them around to be empowering and motivational.
