This is an old one. It landed as a spam in my inbox about 2 or 3 years back.
The point is explained briefly at the beginning of the page. Pop-up blockers at the ready ...


This story did indeed reach more people than the product campaign did. I was working in an advertising agency at the time, and this was considered one of the best anti-campaigns seen in a long while. I'm posting it again, cos why let sleeping dogs lie when you can let the cat out of the bag?

Heh. That was kick-ass. I liked his comment at the wnd where he asked that they send the pic of the Vietnamese girl who made the shoe. I can oly imagine the potential for panic in the Nike PR department.

With every breath...and all that I am...I will make a stand...until the end.
