Biscuit's Rachel McDonald Directs Gatorade's "Every Day Is Your Day" For TBWA\Chiat\Day
Gatorade’s inspirational new film, “Every Day Is Your Day,” features sports icon Mia Hamm and rising U.S. star Mallory Pugh and taps into the iconic Dr. Seuss poem, “Oh the places you’ll go,” to demonstrate the powerful impact that sports can have on young athletes’ lives.
The film is part of the brand’s Sisters in Sweat initiative, which addresses an alarming stat: by age 17, girls drop out of sports at 1.5x the rate of their male peers, and as a result, disproportionately miss out on the skills and long-term benefits associated with playing sports.
“Every Day Is Your Day” is meant to inspire young athletes about the power, skills and confidence instilled by playing sports.
Rachel McDonald of Biscuit Filmworks directed the piece.
