Dubbed ‘Play With Heart’ x Tank Shanghai, this masterstroke by Nike is a heartfelt tribute to a star who plays with every ounce of passion. The creative minds at Wieden+Kennedy Shanghai transformed the tank-like art gallery into a colossal canvas, painting Wang Shuang’s signature heart gesture in larger-than-life brilliance. As night falls, the mural transforms into an awe-inspiring light show, weaving a tapestry of love and support from fans against a backdrop inspired by an enchanting feature animation.

But that’s not all—this campaign’s playbook goes beyond individual brilliance. An animated celebration of the Chinese Women’s Football Team unfolds, highlighting their inspiring stories both on and off the field.
