Nike doesn't advertise here, nor does anyone else, so I can post stuff like this without my "ad revenue" being threatened. You'd be surprised who won't print certain ads or post "blogs" based on advertiser agendas these days, or some of the Don't Do It ads that mags have rejected and why. This one happens to be running in Thrasher, so props to them. I've seen letters from certain skateboarding magazines, to Consolidated, rejecting some of their ads and its pretty frightening. At least Consolidated has some balls still.
Remember the days when ads were honest and entertaining? Yeah, so do I. The only brands I see doin' ads worth mentioning in the last five or 10 years are enjoi, Consolidated and Baker. I guess all you "sneakerheads" can start hunting for these now. Word is they are flyin' off the shelves over at Consolidated. I wonder when the rest of the skateboard industry, who sit around cryin' the blues about large sporting goods companies "infiltrating," are gonna do something about it?
