Do you know Bo? Remember the Nike commercials from the 80′s and 90′s featuring Bo Jackson and the “Bo Knows” ad campaign. Bo Jackson was an all-around athlete and Nike took full advantage of his athletic ability in every sport to help promote their shoes. Bo turns 49 today, so we’re taking a look back at some of those commercials from late 1980′s the early 1990′s!

He was recruited by the New York Yankees before he even graduated high school, but decided instead to attend college at Auburn University where he led them to a Sugar Bowl victory and also won the Heisman Trophy in 1985. Bo eventually did end up playing major league baseball for the Kansas City Royals, Chicago White Sox, and California Angels. He also qualified for the U.S. Olympic track and field team. He join the NFL in 1987 with the L.A. Raiders.  He retired after a1991 injury that sidelined him for four years. His list of awards and accomplishments are too long to list here.  Happy birthday Bo!
