Nike fails at USC apparel

This has been a hot topic lately, I'll link the blog site, but it's true.

 

Blah.  You can see it for yourself at this Nike link.

 

Unless I am being punked this is absurd.  Unless I went spontaneously colorblind, this is utterly insane.  Nike spends more money on their products and ads and R&D than almost anyone out there.  I know sometimes spicing up a team’s clothing designs sparks sales.  Sometimes, we like a Dodger hat in brown with a key lime LA on it.  We like to get extra funky sometimes.

But honestly Nike, what the hell is this?

 

 

USC gear in UCLA colors.  Unless you come from a “mixed marriage” of a Bruin and Trojan, who the hell is wearing these things?  This is honestly like wearing a t-shirt with a picture of another guy having sex with your girlfriend on it.  It’s brutal.  It’s a bastardization of all that is right with the university.

Is there no intern at Nike that spoke up and said “yo, these are UCLA colors, dude”?   No one?

 

I honestly think I’m being deceived here.  There’s no way this can be real.  Is this the best hoax ever or the worst planning ever?  You tell me.

I am sure Bruins will buy this though.  They can finally wear the logo of a winning team to their football games without being pointed at in a crowd.

All right, all right.  I’m having a little fun at UCLA’s expense.  That said, I am sure they don’t like this anymore than the Trojans do.  Brutus Buckeye dressed in Maize and Blue?  The Sooner Schooner draped in Burnt Orange?  The Yale Bulldog in a crimson sweater?  What on earth was Nike thinking?

Oh.  They weren’t.

 

Taken from the Trojan blog found here. The comments are funny.
