Nissan pranks Team GB stars ahead of Rio 2016 Opening Ceremony with #DoItForUs

Nissan has been having some fun with the nation’s potential gold medalists in #DoItForUs. Their new campaign asks Team GB athletes to promote the brand in ridiculous ways during the games.

In the ad below Paralympian Stef Reid is asked to "steer yourself into your starting position" to promote the Nissan Leaf - her reaction is priceless

These videos are a must watch - even if it’s just to laugh at their hilarious reactions, well done guys!

Be inspired by Mini’s #DeffyLabels

Rejecting derogatory labels and refusing to let prejudice hobble your success is the theme of BMW Mini's Olympics push. With #DeffyLabels, the automotive group celebrates diversity and individuality by introducing us to eight U.S. athletes heading to Rio.

With the campaign they have also launched athlete interviews where we can hear very emotional and inspiring stories from each of them. We really enjoyed listening to Serena Williams!

Yoghurt brand Danone surprise the Spanish athletes with support

Spanish yoghurt brand, Danone, has been surprising some of the Spanish athletes during their workouts. Connecting them with family and friends across the globe and sharing supportive messages from different celebrities Danone take team spirit to the next level.

Athletes like gymnast Rayderley Zapata, and hockey player Bosco Perez-Pla  have been involved in #siganatuganas campaign (which translates to if they win you win). The campaign aims to reward their hard work and perseverance over the past four years. Good job you guys!


Adidas sets the focus on the game

As a part of their campaign #FirstNeverFollows Adidas asks all of us to stop the speculation and gossip around football to let the players do the talking instead.

Well said Adidas, we are behind you!
