The recently aired commercial features UA-clad ballerina Misty Copeland and is nothing short of amazing. It begins with a voice-over of a young girl reading a ballet academy rejection letter, while The American Ballet Theatre soloist shows off her toned physique in the brand's stylish performance gear. As the letter comes to a finish, Copeland takes off across the stage, her strength and obvious success juxtaposing the harsh criticisms. The ad ends with the inspirational words, “I WILL WHAT I WANT” emblazoned across the screen.
Copeland isn’t the only female taking part in the I WILL WHAT I WANT campaign—check out the stories of pro surfer Brianna Cope, pro soccer player Kelley O’Hara, pro tennis player, Sloane Stephens, and world champion downhill skier Lindsey Vonn.
