Nike celebrates Rafa’s record with Unstoppable paintball portrait

Following an overnight rain delay, Rafael Nadal defeated Novak Djokovic at the 2012 French Open final, marking his record-breaking seventh title win at Roland Garros. Rafa’s fans were behind him all the way, and ahead of the championship match Nike Tennis encouraged them to submit messages of support on the Nike Tennis Facebook page.

The names of those fans were written on 5,000 paintballs, which were then shot onto a blank canvas to create the “Unstoppable” image of Rafa as a celebration of his historic achievement. Check out the making of video below, created by the Kennedy’s and Wieden+Kennedy.
