Athlete-turned-activist Colin Kaepernick is now part of an Emmy-winning campaign.
The Nike ad he was in won an Emmy for outstanding commercial at the 2019 creative arts Emmy Awards.
The commercial – called “dream crazy” – features Kaepernick and other sports icons like LeBron James and Serena Williams.
They were all part of Nike’s 30th-anniversary commemoration of its “just do it” campaign.
Nike released the ad in September 20-18 – days before the start of the n-f-l season.
Kaepernick made headlines when he began kneeling during the national anthem before games as a protest for injustice.
