Give me the ball

Agency Network: 
March 2013


Wieden + Kennedy Shanghai and Director Stacy Wall of Imperial Woodpecker throws down some serious Chinese basketball cool when he shows how the basketball dreams of a young boy really can come true with a ball and the right pair of shoes in this new spot for Nike airing in China. Edited by Lisa Gunning of Whitehouse Post, the viewer sees a seamless fast-paced sequence of the boy's potential basketball career from getting his Nike shoes to rolling with the crowd and finally going head-to-head with the Black Mamba himself, Kobe Bryant. Visual effects work done by the team at Carbon VFX and telecine by The Mill.

Music: Artist/Title: Steve Reich/ "The Clapping Song", Kendrick Lamar/ "Backseat Freestyle", Terrence Bernardo/ "Gameplay"
