The Ad was narrated by the one and only Serena Williams. Her powerful explanation of the ad during the Oscars did touch everyone in the feelings. After the glitz and glam of Sunday’s 2019 Academy Awards, the biggest star of the night may have been Serena Williams after she took a major stance against sexism in Nike’s new ad campaign.
Williams narrated and appeared in an ad called “Dream Crazier,” which premiered during the Oscars. The commercial highlights female athletes who have overcome barriers in sports, including fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, who became the first Muslim woman wearing a hijab to represent the US at the Olympics; 10-year-old pro-skateboarder Sky Brown; Becky Hammon, who is the first female full-time employee on an NBA coaching staff; Olympic gymnast Simone Biles; and more.
Each clip of these women breaking glass ceilings is paired with the sexist language that’s often used to dismiss women in sports, such as “hysterical” and “crazy.”
This ad is part of Nike’s Dream Crazier campaign, which highlights female athletes who overcame gender discrimination and defied the odds.
