Excellent Nike "Fate" Commercial (Video)



This Nike commercial is great for so many reasons, from the beautiful score to the inspiring theme of two kids (pro footballers LaDainian Tomlinson and Troy Polamalu) living through a lifelong friendly—though no less serious—rivalry. According to Wieden & Kennedy London's blog, here's the deal with the music: "[The] Soundtrack is a remix of 'L’estasi Dell’oro,' (The Ecstasy of Gold), by Ennio Morricone, written for The Good The Bad and the Ugly."

Here's the video to the original of the score

Ennio Morricone also did a lot of excellent music for the Kill Bill soundtrack.
