Cool move by Nike with Kap. New commercial has Kap, Nyjah and Lacey. Will be on TV tomorrow. Nike ainít dumb though, they calculated they will win more than lose from this.

Are there multiple versions of this ad, with this one being the extreme sports version? If not skateboarding got a lot of shine in it, like pretty much the same level as football/basketball and more than athletics/soccer etc.

Honestly the execs at Nike & Adidas must laugh when they sign skater's contracts compared to their other athletes.

Kaepernik is a douche and a mediocre player, he shouldn't be shocked he isnt playing. Great ad campaign as far as looks go but to say he is "sacrificing everything" is a huge stretch. Having said that, I will only be burning 1 maybe 2 pairs of nikes with my "not a flamethrower" this weekend, not because of the ad campaign, purely because theya re old shoes and I want to burn shit.
Title: Re: Nyjah x Kapernik
Post by: TMKF on September 06, 2018, 06:37:51 AM
Nike needs their controversial figure since losing Kanye and finding Adidas making major cuts into their market share. I guess Kaepernick was the best they could find and in all honesty its a great ad campaign aside from the blatant irony.

I can't help but wonder what the ultimate blowback will be with the fact that a consumer cannot make any purchase decisions anymore without having to choose a side, from seeing a movie to buying a pair of sneakers. I imagine people will end up getting sick of it but for right now that seems to be the reality we live in and these 'hype' based business strategies seem to be resinating at least in the short term.

These made my day.

Is Nyjah included in this because he has to overcome wearing tights and t-shirt dresses while he skates?

His fashion sense does bust some gender norms.

Why do you all think they released this ad now, waiting almost 2 years after he did his little kneel?

To me, and it might seem obvious, but it seems much more of a calculated marketing decision rather than an honest solidarity with Kapernikís protest.

That's not what that means at all, goddamn did you miss the point. They're saying that you shouldn't let those stereotypes you mentioned define your life. They mentioned the Williams sisters being from Compton because that's where they from. Black women growing up in 1980's Compton 100% had to work harder and overcome more shit than most people.

B-but you're talking to the same people who said that whatever Jason Jesse may have said 10 years ago must be how he thinks now and that he can't change and needs to be punished for the rest of his life, how does this work to claim that a corporation can change overnight because of an ad campaign they put out to pander, but an individual can't?  Just wondering how this works, illogical things are tricky like that.

The ONLY time a marketing department doesn't do things with generating more sales in mind is when the company is SO profitable that they just need to burn off money for the sake of ensuring that they (the marketing department) continue to receive the same budget the following year.  Otherwise, cuts happen, citing "if you needed the money, you'd have spent it already".  Worked in the industry long enough to know that's the way the game is played, so anything Nike does that's not intended to directly generate more profit is being done simply because they're literally needing to burn money right now from making more than usual this year.  But hey, I'm sure this was done for pure altruism's sake!

B-but you're talking to the same people who said that whatever Jason Jesse may have said 10 years ago must be how he thinks now and that he can't change and needs to be punished for the rest of his life, how does this work to claim that a corporation can change overnight because of an ad campaign they put out to pander, but an individual can't?  Just wondering how this works, illogical things are tricky like that.

I worry your post is purposefully disingenuous for two reasons.

First, you equate acknowledging that x has done something good with fully accepting x as something good. This is not the case. For example, I firmly believe that Rob Dyrdek is bad for skateboarding, but I can acknowledge that his Memory Screen part is amazing.

Second, you are playing with the definition of reformed (which I don't think anyone has said, "Well, Nike is reformed. They are no longer about profit and they are all about the community.")

"How do we define a person or company as being reformed?" could be an interesting question, but, sadly, this isn't how you phrased it. Is someone reformed because they apologized (in order to save their sponsorships)? This would be a tough sell. A better example of reform, albeit fictional, is Ed Norton's character in American History X. He obviously goes from nazi scum to reformed human. What was the exact point of reform? How many good actions did it take for him to be classified as non-nazi? I'm not certain but by the end of the film it is very apparent he has given up his former beliefs and practices.

If a big corporation can do evil, it can also do good. This is an example of the latter.

why do you keep ignoring that jason jessee was continuing to sport nazi paraphernalia after the thread was initially created? it wasnt about what he did 10 years ago.

WTF! We love Nike now.

Compton hasnít been a ďblackĒ city in well over a couple of decades. Itís 70% Hispanic.

Iím sure the white people who raised Kap are proud of the social activist he has become.

Never thought Iíd see the day when skateboarders and football (you skater fags!) jocks were walking hand in hand.

I like the ads. Donít like football, but itís a clever cash in on the moment (even if theyíre a little late to the show).

  Yah 70% hispanic?  Well that fact has little relevence to this argument since the ads target audience has no clue.  Your in a small minority knowing what percentage of who is presently in compton.   Don't try to argue that whites in america  don't associate compton with black people cause that's what it is.

I like it, it's funny that Nike is dissing the NFL in ads during NFL games and while they have the official NFL contract until 2018. Everyone at the NFL must be losing their shit right now...

Is a giant corporation recognizing the opportunity to exploit a social situation for profit going to fix the fundamental problems with this country? - No. Is it better than sitting back and saying nothing (or just complaining without offering solutions)? -  I'll take it.

TLDR: posters on 4chan designed fake Nike coupons and had plans to distribute them at shopping centers. When the cashier scans the QR code a message pops up: "This is a ROBBERY, Move slowly and put all the LARGE bills in the shoe box OR everyone DIES.Ē
