Denver-born director David Fincher's new ad is among Nike's best

I just stumbled on the perfect excuse to share the new Nike ad that's been buzzing around the sports world since it ran during Sunday football last weekend. Turns out the Nike spot, called "Fate," was directed by Denver-born filmmaker David Fincher, heretofore known for directing Se7en, Fight Club and Zodiac.

They might exploit the hell out of their workers, but damn it if Nike doesn't know how to make a commercial. "Fate" and a few other faves are after the jump. -- Joe Tone
