Nike has released their new video for the thirtieth anniversary of their “Just Do It” ad campaign. It features some of the world’s biggest sporting stars like LeBron James, Serena Williams, and the United States Women’s National Soccer Team.

It also features Bayern Munich-bound Alphonso Davies.

The ad, narrated by former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, is based on the premise that nobody’s sporting dreams should be dismissed as “crazy.” After showing amazing athletic feats and accomplishments, the ad ends with Kaepernick saying, “So don’t ask if your dreams are crazy. Ask if they’re crazy enough.”

The Davies portion shows him scoring a goal in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup for Canada when he was just 16 years old. Kaepernick’s voice-over says, “If you’re born a refugee, don’t let it stop you from playing soccer for the national team at age 16.”

It’s probably wild times for Davies. First, he secures a huge transfer to one of the biggest teams in the entire world. Now, at the age of 17, he’s the face of an advertising campaign with some of the world’s biggest stars.
