Top Spot of the Week: Jaci Judelson Directs Serena Williams To Kick Off Gatorade's #SistersInSweat Campaign
Jaci Judelson of Tool directed this emotionally moving film kicking off Gatorade’s #SistersInSweat campaign from TBWA\Chiat\Day. Starring Serena Williams holding her recently born baby girl (actually a double for her baby), the piece shows the tennis superstar imparting an important message to her child: “I won’t mind if you play tennis badly. I won’t mind if you never choose to pick up a racket,” she says. “But I beg you in this game of life please keep playing.”
The film points out the importance of sports in a person’s development, teaching teamwork, self-sacrifice, instilling a strong work ethic. The campaign also highlights other successful women, such as CEO and designer Tory Burch, actress Allison Williams, YouTube executive Susan Wojcicki and Teen Vogue editor-in-chief Elaine Welteroth, all who have participated in various sports teams in their youth.
