I sent a bunch of people a link today for NikeID. Basically, Nike lets you customize a variety of their stuff. My friend Todd responded to this link. He wasn't very unimpressed and started talking about a similar effort that converse had made, and how it wasn't successful. It was actually so unsuccessful that he has not been able to find any record of the product anywhere. They have forgotten it much like George Lucas wishes he could forget Howard the Duck. Todd explained to me that the reason that he remembered this add resulted from him having something recorded on VHS and the commercial for this product was also on it. I told Todd that he should make several copies and send one of the copies to converse along with a note. The note would read something like this:
I know you have been trying real hard to forget about this. I haven't forgotten. You can destroy this copy if you want. I have several more.
