A never seen before Nike sports shoes advert featuring featuring Summer as a tango dancer 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.
Leif Tilden also left a comment about the video saying:
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
Give us your opinion on the concept of the commercial and Summer's performance in the comment section below.
Summer Glau has already shared the stage with Jordi Caballero, with whom she performed on two occasions :

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!
