Nike shoop

Postby Masato » Wed Sep 05, 2018 3:31 pm

Made this last night for all the hype over their latest ad:

Personally I thought the Nike ad was kind of a mess, the whole 'kneeling' thing is so ambiguous and politically polarizing, not sure anyone can really define what it was supposed to mean anymore. But everyone is gushing over it as if they do, lol you should see the LinkedIn comments on my professional circles, everyone praising but I bet not a single one can define exactly what it was all about in the first place

If this had been done in the late 60's w/ Ali, it would have been badass. Ali didn't get a billion $ sponsorship for what he did, rather he got stripped of his title, fined 10Gs, and sent to fucking PRISON for standing up for his convictions, which were clear as day and easy for anyone to understand.

^^^ hahahaha perfect

I'm telling you the reaction to this Nike ad on LinkedIn is really crazy... I am on there purely for professional marketing purposes so its all filled with advertising folk. They are ALL gushing over it, comment after comment on how amazing it is... basically nobody is offering any constructive criticism or questioning exactly what it is referring to, and whenever I see the odd comment not praising it they are literally getting accused of 'supporting racism'

Has everyone lost their critical thinking skills? Or is it just mob/sheep mentality?

I dare not even go there on that platform, would be career suicide lol

Man, I hold so many controversial opinions can't let them out at every opportunity I see or I'd alienate almost everyone I come in contact with, lol Say 1 thing 'wrong' and they will literally call you a Nazi these days

Gotta pick our battles a bit more strategically imo

I will have my day, don't worry :D I have seen my future and it involves dropping some truth bombs before I'm through

What's ironic is that LinkedIn is for the most part a strictly professional space, folks don't like when people post regular cutesy/family facebook type stuff, certainly not political content. But this Nike ad went viral with like 99% support even though it is totally charged with all kinds of volatile subtext. Also Trump-hate is perfectly acceptable lol

We free-thinkers are becoming a minority, my friend. Maybe this is cowardly, but speaking up anywhere and with anyone I think can be a bit foolish. Where to draw the line between these 2 extremes is a tricky question unless you really don't give any fucks or have anyone else close to you to risk alienating
