Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s “Dream Crazy” Nike commercial won an Emmy Award for outstanding commercial on Sunday at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
It beat out impressive ads for Netflix as well as Apple’s Macbook, iPhone XS and Sandy Hook Promise.
Nike announced Kaepernick as the face of its “Just Do It” campaign last September, prompting immediate backlash due to his controversial decision to start kneeling during the national anthem at NFL games in 2016. The move, he said, was an effort to protest systemic racial injustices against the African-American community in the country.
