​The tennis-star troika of Rafael Nadal, Maria Sharapova, and ​​Grigor Dimitrov appears in a sleek new spot for Nike's Tech Pack, along with the likes of former Notre Dame basketball star Skylar Diggins (a personal favorite at the Spin) and more cool-as-ice athletes—just in time for summer.

The spot's tagline is "Engineered to the exact specification of championship athletes." (See more info on that here.) The blazing hot song being played is C2C's "Delta," which samples a line from—of all the tracks in the world—Lil Kim's "How Many Licks."
