NO HOMO



WTF, Nike bowed to pressure by the gays and is removing their Hyperdunk campaign ads in order to 'underline our ongoing commitment to supporting diversity in sport and the workplace' (link)

I think you'd have to be a fudgepacker to think that ad is gay in any way. The first time I saw it, I thought it was hilarious and chalked it up to another solid piece of work by W+K. I mean, is there anybody that watches basketball at all that will view this as homophobic? Getting dunked on, aka 'poster-ized', is an incredibly embarassing experience. That is what the whole campaign is about and it extends to this ad.

I feel like buying an extra pair of Nikes just to spite the gays. This is the cancer that's killing America. Just because a bunch of fags have too much cock on the brain does not mean everything is homophobic. I'm sure any gay person that plays/watches basketball and understands the sport beyond looking for jerk-off material will not find this ad gay. Nike should be ashamed of themselves for bowing to this type of pressure.

No homo on this entire post.

in place of "poster-ized," you could also use the term "facial."

chicks get those all the time and you don't see them complaining (not the spa type, mind you).

you sexist.

honestly, maybe im just not gay enough even though i just look at clothes all day. but i was really surprised when i read they pulled it for perpetuating gay-bashing. before that, there was nothing sexual about that ad at all to me.

that is lame. genius work by w+k. i guess homos dont like sports. that is lame though. what pressure? who gave them pressure? the last time i checked, gays don't pressure anyone.

been keeping up with this ad campaign pretty closely, given my natural propensity towards trying to be as balla as possible = i want hyperdunks. after w/k released specs i kept my eye out, but no need cuz they had crazy placements all over nyc subway stations, impossible to miss. theyre still up there right now and it makes me happy.

even on the w/k blog about this campaign the comments are very pro-ad from gays. idk what the big deal is. abbott on truehoops agrees.

well on the w/k blog they also took down the 'offensive' ads like the one i posted.

there were also a bunch of fags complaining about it in the comments. honestly, probably more gays dont care than do. but the ones that do need to stfu. i just cant believe nike gave in to those people.
