Dream Crazier Little Girl, Nike Gets A Slam Dunk

Nike’s latest dream crazier commercial hits the right chords

I have a daughter who just turned five. It is my absolute life’s mission to raise her to be a fierce, badass woman who kicks butt and takes names. I want her to do whatever it is that sparks a fire in her belly. I never want her to be afraid to take risks or ever to feel like she can’t do something because she’s female whether it’s athletics, school, business or her personal life.

I want her to set goals for herself and not only achieve them, but I also want her to surpass them, like a damn rocket. I never want to hear any of this, ‘but only boys can do that’ nonsense. I want her to be able to hold her own in a business meeting, to be able to command a room with one look. If she wants to play football, Imma buy her a helmet.

This little girl of mine is precious. She’s sweet, feminine, intelligent, decisive and strong-willed. I want the devil himself to quiver when she gets out of bed in the morning. Times are definitely changing for the better for women these days. It may not be completely equal yet, but I don’t think that’s too far away.

There are so many people still who think that girls can’t do certain things because they’re weak, or silly, emotional or fragile. Well, Nike has hit it out of the park with their new ‘Dream Crazier’ commercial.

During the Oscars, Nike’s new commercial aired, and I don’t think there was a woman watching it anywhere in the world who didn’t want to shout ‘f**k yeah’ at the tv!! Not only was the commercial full of badass female athletes, but it also took all the stereotypical phrases used to belittle women, rebounded them and slam dunked them, in a huge up-yours to any a**hole who’s ever dared to try to demean a woman and call her crazy for having a dream.

The dream crazier commercial is narrated by none other than the most bada** athlete of them all, Serena Williams who also stars in the ad, along with gymnast Simone Biles, fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, Chloe Kim, and members of the US Women’s National Soccer Team, former WNBA superstar Lisa Leslie, San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon and more. It shows these strong women passionately striving to reach their goals while being labeled as, crazy, emotional, unhinged and delusional.

Take a look at the ad for yourself. Let those unhinged, delusional, crazy tears of pride flow!!

Well, let them call you crazy for having dreams and goals, show them what crazy can do. Dream CRAZIER my little girl.

    I bet you won’t be teaching her how to ask men out when she’s a woman though, will you…
    2019 and women are still terrified of rejection, refuse to approach men, and thus are obsessed about their looks – because they have nothing else to attract a man.

    I’ll be raising her to have the self-confidence to ask out whomever she chooses, and the smarts to be able to deal with whiny-ass man-babies such as yourself! ^^^ that right there ladies is a prime example of a ‘toxic male’. Thanks for proving my point tho, Steve. You have a wonderful day now.
