One of the biggest stories over the last week, at least in the sports word, has been Nike's endorsement of former NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Now, a new two minute ad has dropped, narrated by Kaepernick and featuring some of Nike's highest profile athletes including Lebron James and Serena Williams. Ever since the iconic company revealed the polarizing former quarterback as the center of its new marketing campaign, everyone has seemingly taken a stance on the issue. "As far as the National Football League is concerned, I just find it hard to watch, and always will, until they stand for the FLAG!" "They owe America an apology". Kaepernick tweeted the video with the caption, "Believe in something".
