6 months is a very long run for controversial ads that work. Most don't go on that long.

The thing about controversy is the initial impact, not how enduring the ad is. The impact can put a company on the map and keep it there for years after the ad itself has been forgotten.

The greatest example of this is the very first Apple MacIntosh TV ad. It only appeared once, during a Superbowl, but that single ad was enough to turn a very small business that was going nowhere into a sudden home computer colossus.

The results were so overwhelming It changed the entire TV advertising industry afterwards to what it is today.
Actually it's the product, not the celebrity. I don't buy anything based on the celebrity that is paid big bucks to show up and do a couple bit parts in their ads. (talk about over paid). I really like the Nike Air 90 and the Air Force 1 low. It's a shame they had to make even buying sneakers political.

hmm, I wonder if Kap will even remember the people who protested in his defense demanding that a football team hire him lol, omg the stupidity.

Not a right winger bud - if you've read the discussion boards - I'm a Democrat and I still think the act of kneeling is wrong - do it on their own time and dime.

I'm an old time Democrat where you respected your country and the people who made it great. We had different ideas back then of equality, social programs ect. - but they never extended to what the liberal Democrats want to do today - Kennedy must be rolling in his grave.

Sorry en - but there are multiple results which say otherwise - and really what difference does it make - they are still made in sweat shops.

Where are Nike athletic shoes manufactured


Trump 2020~

It's funny that the conservatives, who routinely champion the Constitution above all else, suddenly turn against anyone who uses that very same Constitution to guarantee their right to further a cause which they find disagreeable. The hypocrisy on the right is so thick at this point you could....well....you know..... I just find that very satisfying.
You've obviously not been paying attention to the threads - or find them hard to comprehend. The biggest beef about players kneeling is they are protesting on while getting paid to play. Take a kneel at the office tomorrow and see how understanding your boss is that you decide to protest when you're suppose to be working.

Or if you own a business - how would you feel if your employees - got up in the middle of the day and decided to go outside and hold a protest for 10 minutes while they were suppose to be on the clock working.

These players have money - they can take their own time and spend their own dime on whatever they feel they have to object too - and if they are too cheap to spend their own money - I'm sure some rich liberal will finance their endeavors - but it has to be off the field!

Most Americans support NFL players' right to kneel

On another note, you really can not compare professional sports to a regular job. Most jobs require far less talent and are much less competitive as compared to a pro athlete. In principle they may appear the same, but they are not.

The swoosh is simply too ubiquitous in this world to be taken down by a protest in one nation.

Your right, most jobs serve a higher purpose. Just cant compare a fireman, doctor, nurse, teacher, home health care worker, soldier, police, EMT, sanitation worker, maid, counselor, construction worker, farmer, ect. with a athlete or actors and musicians.
Athletes jobs are so much more important to communities they should get special treatment, and people should embrace and praise them for actions they would rebuke the less important, less talented and less competitive workers for like protesting on the job, drug use, criminal activity.
