“Dream Crazier” shines a spotlight on female athletes who have broken barriers, brought people together through their performance and inspired generations of athletes to chase after their dreams.
“If we show emotion, we’re called dramatic. If we want to play against men, we’re nuts. And if we dream of equal opportunity, we’re delusional,” Williams says in the ad. “When we stand for something, we’re unhinged. When we’re too good, there’s something wrong with us. And if we get angry, we’re hysterical, irrational, or just being crazy.”
Narrated by Serena Williams, the ad reminds us how feats like a woman running a marathon, boxing, dunking, coaching an NBA team or “winning 23 grand slams, having a baby, and then coming back for more” were all considered crazy — until somebody did it.
