Nike “Leave Nothing”

15 10 2008

I just witnessed one of the greatest sports commercials ever made. I had goosebumps at the end.

The spot follows two of most dynamic players in the NFL from childhood to one moment on the turf. LaDainian Tomlinson and Troy Polamalu are featured. Quite possibly, the emotional charge I felt throughout the commercial came from the background music – Ennio Morricone‘s “The Ecstacy of Gold” from 1966’s The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

I had goosebumps too. That was definitely a worthy following of the the Steven Jackson/Shawne Merriman Nike spot with the theme from Last of the Mohicans. Both songs I have wanted to use in videos for use in the church for their emotional buildup and driving nature.
