    Nike's Latest Ad Campaign

    It's common knowledge that one of the most effective marketing tactics for brand advertising has always been through celebrity endorsement. However, when choosing which celebrity to work with, companies have to be extremely careful, since controversial celebrities can backlash on the brand image. Nike announced Colin Kaepernick as a major part of its 30th anniversary for the “Just Do It” campaign at the beginning of September. It soon led to several boycotts nationwide – a Rhode Island town council even approved a nonbinding resolution to boycott Nike products (although it was revoked a week after due to the widespread backlash).

    Despite the outrage of some consumers (with extreme reactions, such as burning their Nike shoes), Nike’s sales, in fact, has increased 31% from Sunday through Tuesday over Labor Day. In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares what impact Nike's latest ad campaign had on the brand and discusses how it succeeded with its controversial celebrity endorsement.
