Lately, elbows judge over angry lights, unless they're dull.

Rethink the Cool + the Shoe

phil knight had a dream. he'd sell shoes. he'd sell dreams.
he'd get rich. he'd use sweatshops if he had to.

then along came a new shoe. plain. simple. cheap. fair.
designed for only one thing: kicking phil's ass.

For years, Nike was the undisputed champion of logo culture,
its swoosh an instant symbol of global cool.

Today, Phil Knight's Nike is a fading empire, badly hurt by
years of "brand damage" as activists and culture jammers
fought back against mindfuck marketing and dirty sweatshop labor.

Now a final challenge. We take on Phil at his own game - and win.
We turn the shoes we wear into a counterbranding game. The swoosh
versus the anti-swoosh. Which side are you on?

Adbusters has been doing R&D for more than a year, and guess what?
Making a shoe - a good shoe - isn't exactly rocket science.
With a network of supporters, we're getting ready to launch the
blackSpot sneaker, the world's first grassroots anti-brand.
You can help launch the blackSpot revolution.


Is it possible to take Phil Knight's billion-dollar
marketing momentum and, in a quick judo-like move, slap
him onto the mat with the power of his own PR thrust?

our children's lives.

He said, I hope lights are not turning red, I heard that lights are
turning red, red lights mean we need to go faster.

He said that if he does not listen to us this week we are going to
finalise his case and kill him in this week. He said that they either
need my "sperms" or else at least two of my kids. Mr. Imran Khan told
him that may be they should forcibly take my sperms out of my body, he
said we can?t do that as sperms have to be in some sort of active mode.
He said if I live I will bring a lot of change in people, as "they"
don?t listen to Israelis any more, whoever these "theys" jews want them
undercontrol. He also said that they have tried three times and each
time they have failed, tell me what shall I do, try again after few
months or finish here.

He took me to coffee shop where they gave me some drug.

He told them that he can pay 18 million x 2 for two babies of mine to
anyone. I think Jeff Kenneth?s brother was there th
