This spot for Nike is simply a long take of preteen Nathan Sorrell running. He is 5’3″ and weighs 200 pounds…
Unfortunately for Sorrell, the footage was shot an hour after lunch and he wasn’t able to keep it down, so they had to stop filming for him to be sick on the side of the road. But, he says, “They were lenient with me.”
Filming this ad has inspired him and his mom to get healthy together, after which Nike says they’ll return for a follow-up.
