He's going to get fired.

Methinks Nike is gonna wind up as the subject of a list on Cracked.

Best.  Ad campaign.  Ever.

It leaked over the weekend that he beat his gf's skull in with a cricket bat after he shot her four times. That dude is farked.

Do you think he'll get a job in the prison kitchen since he has spatulas for feet?

They'll take it all back when the Pistorius family releases their own report.
 
2013-02-18 08:59:52 AM
They were excited for a new ad campaign that has since been derailed?

Oh, no.

They were excited for the results of a current ad campaign?

Oh, not that either.

They were excited for... a two-year-old ad?

I guess old news IS exciting.
 
2013-02-18 09:00:11 AM
They should probably get rid of all their ads which rely upon violent imagery.
 
2013-02-18 09:00:50 AM
Shouldn't that be "The cartride in the chamber"? Unless he's a muzzle loading Pistolius.
The cops said they found steroids at his place, that makes a lot more sense than bollocks about cricket bats.

Hey, he thought she was an intruder. You have to kill intruders.

This is incredibly old news.

Man I feel "ahead of the curve" by being in Europe the past week, I heard this one the day after he was arrested.

calling friends before the medics and police like he did never looks good. it would have made a interesting 'the fugitive' show.
"can a legless man wearing fake feet outrun and outwit the cops as he chases the the one armed man he saw with slutty girlfriend"? "he must toil at many jobs and never let people see his feet". "are no feet better then no hand"?

NIKE has the MIDAS touch.
 
2013-02-18 09:13:37 AM
I bet Nike is wishing it had stuck with the first campaign "Rock in the Slingshot" now.

To be fair, in the topsy turvey world of paralympics, having a good solid piece of wood in your hand is often useful.

If someone could get a hold of the ad and shop a dead body at the starting line right before he takes off, that'd make for epic Internet fodder.

Nike has Michael Jordan. Even at 50, he's all the hero that Nike needs.

And, if you got 3 to 1 odds that he'll stay a hero, Jordan will probably put some serious bank on a bet like that.

Lets be honest here. Replace the three with any other number and Jordan's still interested in putting some serious bank on it.

So he's going for the "she turned into a zombie" defense?

How much you want to bet that the girlfriend hooked up with a reality show castmate in front of the camera and then had to break down and tell him about it right before it aired? You'd go into a roid rage, too.  Don't deny it.

I just heard they determined that her skull was cracked,not if it was before or after the shooting; I would guess he cracked it before he shot her since a .357 to the head is pretty skull cracking on its own.

I am thinking

Roid rage
Cricket Practice
Oh Shait I killed Her
Call friends for advice
Yeah I'll make it look like an accident
Hello 911
OH SHAIT WE HAVE ACTUAL CSIs in S.A.
I'm FARKED
Fire up the publicity machine so i can claim to be framed like that dude OJ

What I learned from this article is that someone named Robbie Vorhaus makes a living by pointing out the glaringly obvious.

Nope, but there had to be something that set the guy off.  People don't normally commit murder over a burnt dinner.

They never said when she had her skull smashed in. It would make more sense that he beat her to death with the bat and then tried making it look like something else by shooting her.

Sadly, these failed sponsorships will be just a blip on the radar to Nike. Oscar, Lance, Tiger (still under contract), Vick (under contract), etc. None of this really matters when you can re-manufacture a "throwback" Jordan shoe that costs barely anything to make since all the R & D and molds are already paid for, and charge basically whatever you want for it. Nike's real money is made off of sheep and groupthink mentality. Michael Jordan was also an a**hole too by the way.

I guess if I was on steroids. Otherwise, I would just tell her to leave.

But I am sane and while petty not vindictive.

His parents. They issued a press release to the Guardian basically stating that this wasnt anything other than a terrible case of mistaken identity of an intruder.

Considering theu found a shell casing in the bedroom and she died in the bathroom where more shots were fired makes it look like he shot her once and then she fled to the bathroom where he finished her off. That and the bloody cricket bat tell me it was no accident.

Im just wondering if hes going to stick with the mistaken id defense or maybe he switches to temporary insanity because of roids or something?

I always wonder what's going through someone's head at the time.  You have to know you're not going to get away with it.  Even if you're REAL MAD what's the point?  There's other vapid models out there.

You're correct that they did not say the order of occurrence, and you're probably right in your estimation. Dude's still farked.
