Nike staged incredible coin toss photo that immediately went viral

Shortly after Oregon and Ohio State kicked off the national championship, Nike released an incredible coin toss photo that had everyone on Twitter buzzing.

Here’s the photo if you haven’t seen it.

It’s an amazing piece of art.

Nothing can take diminish how cool that shot is, but we need to clarify one point: It was staged.

As you can see in this photo, the Buckeyes player showing his torso isn’t in the Nike photo.

Also, every player in the staged version is wearing a visor.

Would it have been better if it was from tonight’s coin toss? Of course.

But it’s still a photo worth sharing.
