A Nike U-Tube commercial that began airing today as the London,England Olympics is set to launch – features many of towns named London around the world that are not so famous including our own London, Tulare County, California – not far from Traver. Also called New London to some here, the impoverished town is a farm worker bedroom community.
A Nike film crew came to shoot our few seconds of fame in the commercial last month and the clip shows a quick shot of skateboarders near the green London population sign as well as a quick shot of a neighborhood ‘homie’ with London tattooed on his back.
Turns out Nike is trying to make the point that everyone aspires to greatness around the world.Nike is not an Olympic sponsor so there is no mention of the London,UK games.
