'Nike say, if you have a body you are an athlete!' The Money Show interviews branding expert Andy Rice about the Play New campaign

Nike is one of those brands that gets consumers excited about the advertising they'll come up with next, says branding expert Andy Rice.

The sportswear giant's latest Play New campaign celebrates trying new things, even if your efforts are not terribly successful.

"Trying new things is always a win. That's how you Play New."

'Give it a go even if you're rubbish' is a very, very smart marketing campaign to get people like me to buy their gear.
