Megan Rapinoe. The All-American Hero. She’s chasing a historic three-peat championship for the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team on her final journey to the massive stage, the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Watch her let it rip!
This retro-tastic tribute for Nike was a challenge destined for our director Gary Levesque. We usually are not shy about saying that he and the entire group actually kicked this one out of the stadium.
Thanks to Psyop, our companions in manufacturing and to the company W+Ok Portland for his or her belief with this challenge. Also, sorry, not sorry, however you’ll now be singing MEGAAAN RAPINOE! all day.
