I think it's funny how many people are so willing to back what Mike Carroll did to Marc Johnson, even though if they had the same thing happen to them, they would have probably left Lakai even sooner than Marc did. Think about it. You are working a job one day, and out of nowhere, you notice that your pay has been substantially reduced without warning. You call the company to ask about the reduction and they give you an answer: "Wow, that's weird, we don't know what happened, we will look into that," but they never call you back. Then it happens again, until finally, you get on the phone with your boss and he tells you that he has to cut your pay again. Then he proceeds to tell you to find new employment, but to wait an extra 5-7 months before you start your next job so that your old employer can make more money off you. If I was in Marc's shoes, I would have started looking for another shoe sponsor as soon as my pay was reduced with no explanation or warning. I don't blame any of these pros that decide to take on mainstream and large corporate sponsors. You have to pay the bills somehow and as another poster has said previously "There is no such thing as selling out, when you have mouths to feed." Could have Marc handled the situation better? Yes. But as Crailtap has continued to push inferior products and practice shady business moves; you ultimately reap what you sew.

totally feel like i read this before on page 42 or some shit

this may seem like a rude question but why is adidas even bothering to promote marc johnson? i know he's paid his dues and all but it's 2017 and mark suciu is speaking french and eating pussy*

Maybe this was his idea all along. Make something so bad that adidas looks dumb and kids will buy different shoes.
Could Marc really be an evil genius?

If MJ isn't careful this could end up being one of the most spectacular kookouts in skate history.

The funny thing is, this totally seems like a commercial Lakai would have made. So maybe they couldn't keep up with his ideas after all.

I really hope that he pitched this to Lakai and got denied because they thought that it was too dumb, and a waste of money.

Honestly, I was expecting worse. At least he was playing to his goofy side and not his insufferable pseudo intellectual crap.

Probably didn't have that big corporate budget to mock up cereal boxes.

I feel like at any age I feel like either giving or receiving the pitch "On Your Marc! Cause, you know, Marc Johnson!" would sound insufferably awful. At age 14, 21, 28, 40... whatever demographic you are... this is just SO pathetic. I might have given it a pass at age 7.

Shit made those Look Who's Talking movies look like top tier entertainment.
