Some Raiders fans like to think that by wearing the silver and black it somehow gives them special powers to be “bad-ass” and to “kick-ass”. They apparently didn’t get the memo that while the Raiders teams of the ’70s were a rough and tough kick ass team, the Raiders of the new millennium have been a bunch of nancy-boys. That and you are not what you wear. I could wear a dress made of meat and I suddenly wont be able to sing and like Lady Gaga…i’d just smell real bad and freak out a bunch of people.
Observe as they get their asses handed to them by a bunch of preppy San Diego fans in the lot after the game.
Ok, so time for a little bit of nostalgia here for people that are around my age. Watching last night’s Monday Night Football game, I saw the new Nike Ad with Bo Jackson yelling at Robinson Cano to impress him, then he yells boom and I’m waiting for the dynamite to happen. Never did though, imagine my dismay. If you want to know what I’m talking about, check it out here:
Watching this commercial made me think back to the Bo Jackson commercials of old though. I thought that he had some pretty sweet Nike ads back in the day so, I said to self, “Self, why don’t you find these old videos?”. So I did this.
As it turns out, Bo Jackson’s commercials weren’t nearly as memorable as I remember. As a matter of fact, they kinda stink. Compared to a lot of shoe commercials at the time, Nike certainly could’ve done better. Check em all out for yourself after the jump and be prepared to be as disappointed as I was. Or not, whatever.
