The Man Who Kept Running

There appears to be some serious Forrest Gump vibes floating about in the zeitgeist these days.  First, we elected Donald Trump president, and now Kevin Hart is starring in a new series of commercials for the Nike+ Apple Watch that appear to have been inspired by the film. The series is called The Man Who Kept Running.

As you might have guessed, Hart is The Man Who Kept Running, and he’s aided by his new Nike+ Apple Watch, which helps him track his progress.  Of course, it also keeps him connected to social media and other forms of communication, which sort of contradicts his bearded hermit presence in the commercials, but whatever.

You can see one of the spots in The Man Who Kept Running series below, and you can find the associated collection from Nike’s online store right here. And keep an eye out for Forrest Gump 2 in theaters for the summer of 2018 (just kidding, I think).
