In my opinion, Nike “Unlimited You” was one of their best ads logically and reasonably; the numbers on YouTube show that this is their most viewed ad and it is one of their most recent as it was uploaded on Internet one month ago! Moreover, the infinite passion, the recognizable faces, and the glory of winning to ordinary people made what it takes to move the spirits of audience.

The Mini Case manifests that Nike’s core competency is to create heroes. Nike spends over $1 billion per year sponsoring athletes, and transfer its brand image via celebrity effect.
