Nike Italy’s new ad from W+K London encourages viewers to “Stop at Nothing.”

Directed by Georgia Hudson, the spot features Italian Paralympic fencer Beatrice Vio, who also provides the voiceover.

“They said it was crazy. … But if you stop at nothing, even a crazy dream is possible,” she says in the opening.

The visually impressive spot rapidly cycles through a series of athletic performances of all types, with especially interesting transitions. It concludes with Vio typing “Stop at nothing” with a prosthetic hand, followed by the long-running “Just do it” tagline.

“Stop at Nothing” follows Wieden+Kennedy’s “Dream Crazy” campaign with Colin Kaepernick, exploring a similar theme—pursuing dreams others may think are crazy—and “Rallying Cry” featuring female athletes (including Serena Williams) from around the world.
