Inspiring Olympics Ads We Love
If athletes’ amazing prime time performances don’t make you want to hit the gym with a little more oomph in the morning, the TV commercials that air throughout the games just might move you to put in that extra mile or go up one more weight. These motivational messages are our favorites. While you might need a tissue or two, watch them the next time you could use a pick me up.
The Olympics can intimidate the everyday exerciser, but Nike’s “Find Your Greatness” ad serves as a reminder that athletic greatness isn’t reserved for elites. With a little effort, anybody, including the overweight 12-year-old boy in Nike’s “Jogger” commercial, can achieve it.
We love that Proctor and Gamble’s “Best Job” ad gives a big shout out to moms for the huge roles they play in helping their kids succeed in sports. Bounty’s adorable “Let the Spills Begin” ad is also worth a watch.
AT&T's “Warming Up” ad features Ryan Lochte swimming across the Atlantic to London as a metaphor for the hard work that is required to make it to the Olympics.
Visa’s “The Difference” ad, which features Michael Phelps and his mom Debbie, reminds us just how far support from fans and family can carry Olympic athletes. Plus, could there be a more uniting message than “Go World”?
While we typically care most about seeing how athletes finish a race or match, Kellogg’s “Swimmer” ad takes us back to the beginning.
