Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

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

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
