Meet Steph Curry’s Family in Latest Droga5 Under Armour Teaser

By Patrick Coffee 

We can now confirm that the world has not stopped turning and we have not all disappeared into that black hole.

In other words, Droga5 is still producing and promoting ads more than a week after announcing the Accenture acquisition. The proof? A new teaser for a 10-minute “documentary film” promoting the client’s newest product launch, UA RUSH performance gear. It’s described as clothing “made with responsive textiles scientifically designed to enhance performance when worn at the time of sweat.”

So it’s like wearable Gatorade.

In order to hype this one, the client is producing the short, titled “Margin of Victory,” which stars Steph Curry, World Cup soccer champion Kelley O’Hara, and heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. Here is the trailer released earlier this week.

So that’s it—same Droga5, making ads about top performance athletes, but this time with a legit documentary flair. The full film comes out next month.

Meanwhile, Under Armour hired a former Nike executive as its new chief design officer. Maybe all these efforts will be enough to counter recent reports that the brand has been losing ground to competitors, especially among younger consumers.
