Tisch Institute’s David Hollander Quoted in NYT on Nike Ad Campaign

Tisch Institute Clinical Associate Professor David Hollander Shared His Perspective in The New York Times on Nike Winning and Emmy Award for it Colin Kaepernick “Dream Crazy” Ad Campaign

In a recent New York Times article on Nike winning a Creative Arts Emmy for its Colin Kaepernick ‘Dream Crazy’ advertisement, David Hollander, assistant dean of NYU Real World and clinical associate professor at the NYUSPS Preston Robert Tisch Institute for Global Sport, shared his perspective that great advertising captures the spirit of the times that we live in.

“All of the best advertising is reflective of the zeitgeist of the times, and the zeitgeist of today is a divided America,” said Hollander in the New York Times story, published on September 16, 2019. “It’s no secret to anyone that we’re in an extremely tense time, and it’s the job of marketers to translate that into the movement of their product or service.”
