Kaepernick says: "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything".

The former 49ers quarterback is revealed as the narrator toward the end of the spot. It features young athletes who compete amid various challenges, touching on issues of gender, disabilities and weight loss, among others.

While Nike may be feeling some heat from critics after the release of the Kaepernick ad, the company has earned $43 million worth of media exposure in the first 24 hours, according to one estimate.

The commercial ends with Kaepernick speaking to the camera and saying, "So don't ask if your dreams are insane". "If they had asked the NBPA, we would have told them that they are out of line, and that the NBPA supports any person or group who exercises their right to peacefully protest against any form of social injustice, including police brutality and racism".

Kaepernick's grievance against the league and team owners accuses owners of colluding to keep him off any roster. But with Twitter getting literally lit up with video of people burning their Nike gear, "Just Do It"-mocking memes trending online, and Trump having a blast watching it all from afar, you start to wonder if this is what Nike had in mind".

"You are going back ... that shows you just have no respect for the anthem or the flag", he said.

Nike is the official uniform maker for the National Football League and recently extended its contract through 2028.

He may claim he's being persecuted for being politically active - he originated the controversial national anthem kneeling actions, after all - but he's received bigger and more successful offers since then.

"I stand for anybody that believes in change".

"I don't like what Nike did". "I stand with Nike, every day, all day".

US President Donald Trump has criticized the company for the advertisement.

Mr. Trump tweeted on Friday morning, "What was Nike thinking?"
