Nike celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. The Swoosh brand does this with an extensive programme in which members profit from exclusive actions. Nike also presents the Spike Lee 'Seen It All' film, which pays tribute to 50 years of Nike. Until 20 May 2022 Nike Members can enjoy various activities. This is what we can expect:

I Seen It All

The year 2022 is a big year for Nike. Models like the Air Max 1 and Air Force 1 celebrate their 35th and 40th Anniversary and also the brand itself celebrates its 50th Anniversary. The brand does this in different ways.

On 16 May 2022 for instance, Nike released a mini movie 'I Seen It All' in collaboration with Shelton Jackson Lee, also known as Spike Lee.

Spike Lee is a well-known director with many iconic films to his name. These include titles such as 'Do The Right Thing', 'She's Gotta Have It' and 'Malcolm X'. In the film for Nike, Spike Lee looks back on Nike's history, while his opposite number, Zimmie, looks to the future.

In his famous role as Mars Blackmon, Spike Lee comments on various highlights of Nike history. His commentary includes sporting achievements by athletes such as Koby Bryant and Tiger Woods. "I Seen It All", says Spike Lee.

On 16 May, the brand kicked off with 'Swoosh Stories', in which Nike paid tribute to the famous Swoosh.
