Nike Tango Spec Commercial

Added by chrisdvanne on Jan 09, 2013 | 6 COMMENTS


A never seen before video featuring Summer Glau and choreographer/dancer/actor Jordi Caballero, probably made before Summer's acting debut on tv, showed up online.

In the concept for a commercial for Nike, directed by Leif Tilden, a tango couple of dancers manage to perform their routine only after they put on their Nike sport shoes (a spec commercial is simply a “fake” commercial that a filmmaker makes to show ad agencies and companies that he’s worthy of hiring).

Check out this beautiful and rare example of Summer Glau's early career.

I had lost this years ago and found it when I recently moved..It was just a simple shoot which we did in a few hours at a dance Studio which Summer and Jordi rehearsed at in Los Angeles..Just me and a friend with a low end digi camera..I actually was the Location Manager on "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" years later but never met her..they should team up in Dancing with the Stars

The concept is good, and the performance is credible, the commercial spec works for me!
Also, who would have thought that we would see such rare document one day?

I assume you saw the dance in its entirety? I know its location on youtube if anyone wants to see it.
It's such a shame that her performances were not recorded.

This must be the holy grail of Summer Glau videos. She has made reference in the past I believe to having done some work on commercials at the very start of her career but nothing more than that.

She has a wonderful energy in this film. No words are spoken but she and her partner are able to convey the message very clearly of their frustration. The camera loves her.

Thanks so much for posting this!
