Nike pays tribute to Kobe Bryant with an advertising tribute before his funeral.
The death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter and the other components of the wrecked helicopter has shaken the world of sports. A loss difficult to understand for all those basketball lovers. And more in the case of Kobe Bryant, the successor of the mythical Michael Jordan.
In these cases you have to have tact to make any tribute, especially if they come from the brands that sponsored Kobe. You have to go with lead feet to want to say goodbye to the star and not try – let’s not forget, we’re in advertising – get a revenue as a brand.
