Sports are back. Gatorade is celebrating their return from the coronavirus pandemic with a new campaign starring former UK track and field star, Sydney McLaughlin.
McLaughlin was set to hurdle her way onto the podium at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Postponed for a year, during her free time she’s been working with Gatorade. In their latest ad, McLaughlin says, “Put me in coach.”
You may seen the ad but missed McLaughlin. Starring alongside Bryce Harper, Elena Delle Donne, and Todd Gurley, I am not afraid to admit that my Kentucky bias clouded my view. When Zion comes on my screen, I tune out. The grudge against Duke isn’t going anywhere.
In addition to the ad, you can find McLaughlin on Gatorade bottles that fill the shelves of supermarkets and gas stations nationwide.
