Nike’s “Dream Crazy” ad, which was narrated by Kaepernick and also featured athletes like Serena Williams, LeBron James, and Shaquem Griffin, was nominated this week, for Outstanding Commercial.
While Nike faced some backlash for partnering with Kaepernick, but saw online sales jump 31 percent after the campaign launched.
More recently, Kaepernick and Nike were back in the news after Nike pulled a Betsy Ross flag shoe design, reportedly at Kaepernick’s request.
