"Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything. Just Do It."

Why is this ad stupid? Well:

What is "something?" In this case, "something" is a clearly divisive topic, which has no clear explanation or "official statement" to move forward from.
"I believe" Nike hates America, and they want globalism/communism to take over.

What is "everything?" In CK's case, what was "sacrificed?"

I could understand "risking everything," but "sacrificing everything?" I can't think of anybody I would tell, "sacrifice everything."
Nike, I would say, risked a lot, but what is it that they believe in, that they would risk so much for? Why won't they tell us? (Maybe they did, but I didn't see it.)

I don't "believe" Nike will be hosting or sponsoring amicable, yet quality, televised town halls and debates, at neutral locations, in the near future.


"Just do it" is not normally sound advice.

"Even if it means sacrificing everything." Technically, this isn't a sentence.


I'm not triggered!!!!!! I'm just kinda bored, right now... OK?!

Nike wants air time for free....and that's exactly what there getting. Free air time for the selling of their wares. Anti-anything right now get's airtime...thanks CNN. Nike is simply using the man and he's just to stupid to see it. Also to stupid to realize he himself ended his brief and un-eventful time in the NFL..

To show goodwill, I'll change it to "Nike doesn't love America."
They want communism because it's cheap labor.

Well, I can't argue about where Nike has it's stuff made, they certainly do love cheap labour. I don't think they want their customer base to be in a Communist system.

It appears that sometime whining works in getting the big money. Skills optional.

What he is implying to the masses is that he sacrificed his career to become the face of the SJW.

In reality, he sacrificed a job he was going to lose anyways.

Because his last two years sucked. What... 3-16, 1-11?

He had the nerve the other day to compare himself to Mohammad Ali.

He's a loser that is now making money from other losers.

This poster was hanging in a bathroom where I worked:

www.amazon.com...

I always thought the title should have been, "Intelligence: Knowing when doing something is just way too dangerous."

I’m not gonna change the title, but maybe I could’ve made it better...

Nike's Ad's Content is Logically Stupid(?)

I'll give you one better- EVERY ad is stupid.

Advertisement should be outlawed.

Did you know there are places on this earth where billboards are against the law?

Nike: "Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything. Just Do It."


ISIS: "Hold my beer".

Well it was exactly what Nike needed. They were looking for something edgy to get their name out there. And in this case they know there clients. Lets be real conservatives were not buying nike and if they do its the cheap pair from rack room shoes. They are not spending 250.00 on sneakers but people who support the NFL protests would.


Its a win win for them free press and can stay hip and edgy.

I guess my problem might be that Nike is trying to be a not-so-subtle Confucius...

I said in a different thread, as personal advice, I generally like the message...

If they used almost anybody other than Kaep, it probably wouldn’t have been politicized... but since it’s politicized, Nike shouldn’t have been so ambiguous. (They’re ambiguous by promoting an individual and/or his actions, but not commenting on the individual’s message, which is what it’s “supposed” to be about...)

It’s another thing (the ad) that I’ve already seen people on social media start accusing others of being racist and bigoted over, without opening, or even being open to dialogue...

Kap opted out of his last contract.
He quit.
He didn't "sacrifice" anything.

Well played nike.
