Nike Apologizes For Minor Threat Material Used in Ad Campaign
Nike has issued an apology for using a Minor Threat poster as part of their recent ad campaign without permission. Part of the apology reads as follows:
"Nike Skateboarding sincerely apologizes for the creation of a tour poster inspired by Minor Threat’s album cover. Despite rumors being circulated, Wieden & Kennedy and Odopod had nothing to do with the creation of this tour poster and shold not be held accountable. To set the record straight, Nike Skateboarding’s “Major Threat” Tour poster was designed, executed and promoted by skateboarders, for skateboarders. All of the Nike employees responsible for the creation of the tour flyer are fans of both Minor Thread and Dischord records and have nothing but respect for both."
The entire apology can be viewed here.
An astute blogger pointed out that Nike posted the apolgy in a graphic file (Why Apologize in Text when a GIF Will Do?) and as such, it will never be picked up by the Search Engines.
