Nike launches 'Yards' TVC featuring Indian cricket team

MUMBAI: Sports footwear maker Nike has announced the launch of “Yards,” its next Nike Cricket TV spot.


The spot makes its world premiere on 30 March on ESPN and on the Nike India YouTube Page: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgOR1Xwxvyw.


The spot will also air on Star Sports, Star Cricket and
http://www.Facebook.com/nikecricket.
 
The new ad brings to life the ‘Just Do It‘ attitude that exists throughout street cricket across India. It seamlessly captures the relationship between the raw street-style of cricket played by youth all over India and the bold, best-of-class cricket played by Team India itself.


The 60 spots will premier today during the semi-final play between India and Pakistan.
 
The ad takes the viewer on a visual journey by bringing to light the spirit and the passion of the game while showcasing the connection between the two styles of play. At center stage of “Yards” are the heroes of street cricket: the local youth who live and claim their 22 yards all over India.


Yards offers an interplay of scenes that shows how the game feeds off the street and how the street feeds off the game. The spot opens with a neighborhood kid preparing to bowl. Anticipation builds as images of kids in different settings cut seamlessly to athletes from Team India preparing for a match.
 
Crowds hang on to every ball bowled and every swing. Quickly switching from gully cricket play to match play, there is intensity of the game that is felt on the streets, on
terraces, and in the stadiums, from the fans to the players, uniting them all.


The ad includes Team India athletes Zaheer Khan, Virat
Kohli, S.Sreesanth, M.S. Dhoni, and Yuvraj Singh.


By depicting how both street cricketers and national team athletes create their own stadiums wherever they choose to chart out their 22 yards, “Yards” expands the story told by athletes in Nike’s previous “Bleed Blue Athlete Pledge” TV spot launched last week during the quarter final play.


The ad is not just about cricket but rather cricket in India, distinctive from the rest of the world. In India, cricket unites everyone.


Nike India marketing director Sanjay Gangopadhyay said, “Cricket is more than just a sport in India. It’s more than just about runs scored or games won, It is a unifying force that represents dreams fulfilled and barriers broken. Nike’s new “Yards” captures this idea by creating an authentic visual link from the young cricket crazy kids to the sport’s elite athletes. The ad is yet another milestone in Nike’s deep connection to cricket in India and we are confident that it will stir the emotions of ‘Bleed Blue’.”


Yards features a soundtrack inspired by the very sounds that surround the street game in India. Composer and co-founder of Blue Frog Sound Lab, Dhruv Ghanekar, scored the original musical composition. By utilising both social and broadcast media, “Yards” will reach millions of India’s devoted cricket fans and allow them to share their passion for the sport and team.


The ad was directed by Omri Cohen (Hello Robot Films) with creative direction by Senthil Kumar of JWT.
