The Nike commercial that featured civil rights activist and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been nominated for a 2019 Emmy award. The ad, titled “Dream Crazy,” went viral upon release September for its uplifting message, but it was also met with controversy because of Kaepernick’s previous protests on police brutality and racial inequality during the national anthem.

Nike’s two-minute spot was nominated in the outstanding commercial category on Wednesday. The winners will be revealed on September 22.

The ad initially received backlash with some customers burning apparel and vowing to never buy from the company again. Despite the backlash, Nike’s stock soared and added nearly $6 billion to the company’s value.

I can hardly wait to see the conservative freakout if this ad actually wins the Emmy.

I personally do not give two shits about Nike, but I do love me some conservative freakout.

    If anyone watches college sports, I give you University Of Oregon. Phil Knight OWNS it, withdrew his money disagreement, Dave Frohnmeyer cried.
    Anything you say, Massah Phil! ALL about the Benjamins.
