Under Armour launches "Rule Yourself" campaign

Aug '15
American performance footwear, apparel and equipment maker Under Armour has unveiled its Rule Yourself marketing campaign, which defines the brand's vision for training as a lifestyle.

The 60-second "Anthem" spot and a series of shorter films that will debut this fall, showcase the self-discipline of NBA MVP Stephen Curry, American Ballet Theatre Principal dancer Misty Copeland, two-time golf major champion Jordan Spieth and NFL MVP and Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady, to raise the bar on what it means to be successful in training, the company said in a press release.

The "Anthem" spot shows a different side of the road to glory for athletes Curry, Copeland and Spieth. Even as a champion, principal dancer and MVP, their commitment to getting better is just as strong as it was on day one. In the spot, Curry, Copeland and Spieth are multiplied in front of the viewers' eyes, becoming an army of synchronized athletes, completing repetitions, relentlessly practicing the skills that set them apart. The visual is impactful not only in its literal execution but also in its metaphorical significance—that each of these athletes must grow and rule their own "army" within to provide the discipline, dedication and relentless spirit required of the best.

"The concept of the 'Rule Yourself' campaign is simple — you are the sum of all of your training. It's the only way to get better, and it's the common thread that unites each of our all-star athletes around the globe," said Adam Peake, Executive Vice President, Global Marketing, Under Armour. "Under Armour provides the gear, equipment and digital tools the athlete needs to push through a tough workout. But we also want to give them that extra inspiration to improve everyday, to keep building their inner army and to stay focused on success even when the going gets tough."

Throughout his rise to NBA MVP, Curry was never the biggest, strongest or fastest player on the court. But he was known as the hardest worker, the first to arrive at practice and the last to leave, drilling shot after shot. "This story captures the hard work that happens when no one is watching, and that's the part of the game that has always kept me coming back for more," said Curry. "When you love the game, you have to embrace the process and learn how to push yourself to get better every day."

The brand will launch the 360-degree global campaign with media partners including ESPN, NBC, CBS, MTV, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and a variety of lifestyle, digital and mobile outlets, the statement said. (SH)
