Top Spot of the Week: Gatorade's "Cadence"
Whether you’re a professional or an everyday athlete, “Cadence” celebrates the dedication, persistence and repetition of sports competitors around the world who all know what it takes to win. Featuring Dwyane Wade, Serena Williams, Derek Jeter and Robert Griffin III, Gatorade celebrates a day-in-the-life of athletes by showcasing the hours and relentless practice they all put in prior to competing.
The spot was helmed by directing team Josh & Xander (Josh Melnick and Xander Charity) from @radical.media.
“This will break on the BCS bowl games in early January. At a moment when the world is setting goals for the new year, we thought it’d be good to show the work and effort that goes into any athletic success, whether professional or everyday athlete,” said Brent Anderson, global group creative director, TBWA\Chiat\Day.
