BEAVERTON Partnering with two other Portland-area companies, Nike launched its first interactive television ad last month. Nike’s “Quick is Deadly” campaign, by the swoosh’s longtime ad partner Wieden+Kennedy, is supporting the rollout of the Zoom footwear line and features athletes such as football’s LaDainian Tomlinson and basketball’s Steve Nash. Customers of the Dish Network with a DVR receiver will be able to access the interactive part of the promotion developed by Portland-based interactive TV company Ensequence. Those viewers will be able to watch bonus footage and pull up a menu for access to product information. Ensequence, which has brought interactivity to television characters such as Dora the Explorer and Bravo’s Top Chef, has done more than 20 interactive commercials since 2006, including one for Nike rival Reebok.
