Artbusting: Nike sodomizes punk rock.

nike rips off oldschool punk album art, poster and minor threat album cover almost exactly the same
David points out yet another example of the weak, tacky trend where huge corporations use imagery ripped off from indy/punk/artistic creations to shill their generic crap.

Pictured above is the cover of an early eighties Minor Threat cover next to a poster recently used by Nike to promote a skateboard tour it was holding. How nice of them to also rip off the silkscreen/xerox aesthetic common to the indy scene because silkscreen and xerox are the only means available on a slim budget (10$ says the “Major Threat” posters were four-color printed on glossy).
