Narrated by tennis star Serena Williams, this Nike spot--directed by Kim Gehrig via production house Somesuch for Wieden+Kennedy, Portland, Ore.--shows what aspiring and professional female athletes have to combat beyond their competitors on the court or on the other side of the net.

Titled “Dream Crazier,” the piece has Williams sharing, “If we show emotion, we’re called dramatic. If we want to play against men, we’re nuts.” Women who dare to excel and compete are furthermore labeled with adjectives ranging from “unhinged,” “hysterical” and “delusional.” Williams concludes , “if they want to call you crazy, fine. Show them what crazy can do.”
