NIKE SIGNS NFL’S COLIN KAEPERNICK TO FRONT ‘JUST DO IT’ 30TH ANNIVERSARY CAMPAIGN
Nike has „thrown caution to wind“ and risked incurring the Twitter wrath of US president Donald Trump after it selected Colin Kaepernick as one of 30 faces to mark its 30th anniversary celebration of the ‘Just Do It’ tagline from Wieden + Kennedy.
Kaepernick is best known as the first NFL player to kneel during the pre-match national anthem as a protest against racism, a campaign initially shunned by brands fearful of being seen to take sides. Trump even called on NFL to fire players who disrespect the American flag.
Confirming the move Nike spokeswoman Sandra Carreon-John said: “Colin has been a Nike athlete since 2011. Colin is one of a number of athletes being featured as part of our 30th anniversary of Just Do It.”
Kaepernick himself has already taken to his new role with gusto, posting a moody Nike branded black and white photo of himself to his followers on Instagram and Twitter overlaid by the slogan: “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”
WPP ISSUES HALF YEAR FINANCIAL ANOUNCEMENT
WPP has made its first half year financial announcement since Sir Martin Sorrell left the business earlier this year, just one day after appointing former Wunderman leader Mark Read as his permanent replacement.
Overall, the outlook is still tough for the advertising giant as reported revenue was down 2.1% at £7.493bn, but, as Read points to in his first financial commentary as CEO, it’s the first quarter to see like-for-like revenue to grow since 2017, with Q2 2018 up 2.4%.
As part of the announcement, he briefly outlined his intentions and announced a new strategy for the holding company is in the making. Commenting on the results, he said new business and client retention had factored into early signs of recovery.
The tone overall was lighter than Sorrell’s last few comments on financial results, which were regularly blunt about the outlook, calling 2017 ‘not pretty’.
