This week's top picks include a breathtaking Nike spot, Snapchat's invitation to brands and the return of Coca-Cola.
Coca-Cola opens up
After a seven-month ad pause, the longest in its history, Coca-Cola is back from its hiatus. 72andSunny Amsterdam worked with spoken-word artist 'George the Poet' on a campaign that urges people to be 'Open, Like Never Before.'

Life after lockdown
To help 'Generation Lockdown' picture life after Covid-19, the National Citizen Service has unveiled an uplifting visual manifesto and statement of intent, created by Karmarama. Starring the first 'Young People’s Laureate' Caleb Femi, the spoken word piece highlights what really matters to younger generations at the present moment.
Just do it
Nike commemorated the victorious return of the NBA with a breathtaking film that utilised a split-screen to seamlessly illustrate the parallels between sports, and the social causes many top athletes stand for. 'You Can't Stop Us' was produced by Nike's long-term ad agency, Wieden + Kennedy.

As Snapchat looks to reclaim some lost ad spend, it has debuted its first brand-facing campaign - 'Meet the Snapchat Generation'. With Facebook and TikTok both in the middle of very public scandals, this tactical campaign by Snapchat could help it get a competitive edge.
