Theophilus London – 1 Love: Brooklyn (Nike Sportswear Campaign) | Video

For the first of Nike’s 1 Love series, Theophilus London shares his interpretation of the borough as a Brooklyn native and talks about how Brooklyn has shaped his outlook while the camera follows him across his familiar haunts, including a Trinidadian roti shop, record store and basketball court.

As part of the lead up to the World Basketball Festival, Nike Sportswear created a mini documentary of Brooklyn-raised rapper, songwriter and producer Theophilus London giving a tour of the neighborhood he grew up in. This video is part of “1 Love,” a Nike Sportswear experience created to celebrate the AF1 and hoops culture throughout NYC’s 5 borough’s. The “1 Love” program consists of a series of borough-specific mini documentaries, the release of five exclusive Borough Edition AF1′s and a Borough vs. Borough basketball tournament which took place on 7/31 and culminated in a block party at Nike Sportswear’s NYC boutique, Nike Sportswear @ 21 Mercer.

For the short film series Nike Sportswear choose five representative personalities that embody the heart and soul of each of the boroughs to provide an insider’s guide on what makes their home unique. Theophilus kicks it off.
