Nike Salutes Derek Jeter's Baseball Legacy in Sweet Ad



Nike has mad respect for Derek Jeter.

And rightfully so. The Yankees player celebrates 20 years in the baseball game this season. In honor of Jeter's upcoming retirement, the Jordan brand — which has sponsored Jeter since 1999 — released a sweet video entitled "RE2PECT."

In the ad, several fans, athletes and celebrities, including Tiger Woods, Carmelo Anthony, Jay Z and Billy Crystal, tip their hats to Jeter. (No big deal.)

Then, prepare yourselves. Even a couple of Red Sox fans and Mets players get in on the hat-tipping salutes.

Apparently, Derek Jeter is so legendary Nike will even hire actors to act as Red Sox fans and Mets players who tip their hats to their rival.

Nah, we're kidding. It's well-deserved. Jeter is one of just 28 players to surpass 3,000 career hits and is currently eighth on the all-time hits list with 3,408, according to MLB.

The ad will air on Tuesday night during Jeter’s final All-Star game.
