Nike has launched a sports magazine to "define the concept behind 'Just Do It' to Italians," according to M.H. Moore in the current ADWEEK. A million copies of the 28-page magazine were distributed in Italy through the newspaper Via La Republica, with the first issue covering a "range of sports and features local and international athletes." Nike and ad agency Weiden & Kennedy have launched a series of eight TV ads in Italy focusing on the "Just Do It" slogan.

We hope it will give the consumer an attitude that they can buy into" (ADWEEK, 5/15 issue).
