Star Spangled Marvin

You don't have to be American to appreciate this awesome version of the Star Spangled Banner by Marvin Gaye. Originally performed at the 1983 NBA All Star Game, this is arguably one of the best versions of the anthem I've ever heard. Gives you goosebumps at the end.

Using the original footage, Wieden + Kennedy has put together this great spot for Nike as a tribute to this year's U.S. Olympic "Dream Team".

See the 1983 version here.
