Nike Air Collection Unit

Nike celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Nike Air shoe on April 1, 2010 with Air Secrets, a satirical short film aired on TV in the USA and online globally. The Nike Air Collection Unit collects air from Nike athletes such as Maria Sharapova, Carl Lewis, Sanya Richards, Paula Radcliffe, Brandon Roy, P-Rod, Troy Polamalu and John McEnroe, all for the cause of equipping a new generation. David Koechner, star of Anchor Man and Curb Your Enthusiasm, won Gold for Best Actor at the British Arrows for his humorous work as continuity man in this ad.
