Nike’s triumphal Women’s World Cup ad backfires

Arguably the worst thing that could happen in the Women’s World Cup was the US winning again – for the fourth time – and the inevitable wave of triumphalism.

Nike was clearly expecting such a result and rushed this out as soon as the final whistle went.

Not often that Nike unveils a raucous, vulgar bummer but this is one.

MAA creative scale: 1 (quick off the mark.)
