2 Funny/Ad Nausea: Nike Presto!
Back in 2000, Nike first unveiled their Presto! collection, a unique line of sneaks which boasted wonderfully garish colors and comically unusual names, such as Shady Milkman and Orange Monk. There were also some pretty cool, funny animated spots made for this product line. Here are the ads for 6 of them.
For the record, the other 7 were:
- Catfight Shiner
- Rogue Kielbasa
- The Hungry Fisherman
- Chips and Dip
- Angry Chicken
- Migraine Fly
- Stephen Murphy
I wish they had gotten commercials too. (There was alive-action spot made for Angry Chicken, featuring a guy doing parkour to escape a chicken, but it wasn’t nearly as interesting.) I would have LOVED to have seen what kind of cool animations this crew could have come up with for Stephen Murphy and Rogue Kielbasa. The mind boggles.
