Duke Ad

Dear Nike,

You aren’t helping me get past the whole “Why I Hate Duke” disposition I’ve lived with since 1993. In fact, you’re only making it worse with the new print ads celebrating Duke’s National Championship. In fact, the Duke ad makes me feel an awful lot like this:

I’m not sure if alienating everybody but Duke fans is the best marketing strategy, but then again, Nike doesn’t care about whose fur it ruffles. They simply want us to react, just like the new Tiger Woods commercial. With that in mind, congratulations are in order to Phil Knight and his band of merry men; because people are indeed reacting — although, no one likes being reminded of the arrogance surrounding the Duke basketball program, perceived or otherwise.
