Under Armour

Need a dose of motivation? This new Under Armour ad will get you pumped up.

Unveiled today, the new "Rule Yourself" campaign features NBA MVP Stephen Curry, American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Misty Copeland and two-time golf champion Jordan Spieth performing the routine exercises that are fundamental to each of their respective athletic endeavors.

The ad is celebrating persistence, commitment and ambition. It is a prayer to hard work. While the athlete may grow tired of repeating each humble dribble, swing and leg extension, the sum of these efforts, when taken together, is greatness.
