Nike Native

Nike is reportedly producing a line of shoes made soley for Native Americans. They will distributing the shoes to tribal wellness programs and tribal schools at a discount. They will be called the Air Natives. I know they have their own marketing team but I thought I'd take a shot at coming up with some slogan ideas. These may be racially insensitive.

  1. Say "How" to the new Air Natives.
  2. The Air Natives, not your chief's mocassins.
  3. The Air Natives, $119.99 or 400 acres of reservation.
  4. The Air Natives, because your athletic wear shouldn't be a gamble.
  5. The Air Natives, reserve yours today.
  6. The Air Natives, so good you'll give them as a gift and then take them back.
  7. The Air Natives, hey sorry for that whole stealing your land thing.
  8. The Air Natives, so comfortable the Trail of Tears is no big deal.
  9. The Air Natives, What would you do with out the White Man?
  10. The Air Natives, made for cheap by natives of another land. Sold for cheap to natives of this land.

Scissors Rule!

Okay, maybe I'm geeking out a bit, but scissors are really really awesome! Wait, hear me out. I know we've all used scissors before and yeah there's nothing new about them. But I just used a pair of scissors to cut open a bag containing a yummy snack and I have to say, I was overwhelmed with joy over what an awesome piece of technology scissors are. Actually, I think my reaction appropriately matched the awesomeness of the situation so I guess I was just whelmed. But just think about how powerful scissors are! How many items were you constantly reminded not to run with when you were a child? (if scissors and the pool teamed up they would be a powerhouse) Scissors have used fear to maintain order in elementary class rooms throughout the ages. But scissors are more than just a method for enforcing juvenile speed limits. They are also the ambassadors to new businesses. Every day a new business is opened and with out a pair of scissors to cut that impenetrable ribbon in front of the store, how would customers ever get in? Scissors are so powerful that even though they are only one item, they are referred to as a pair. So take a moment to respect the incredible invention that is Scissors.
