Nike Commercial Just Doesn't Do It

Dr. Lee Cronk, an anthropologist at the University of
Cincinnati who spent two years in Kenya studying the Samburu
tribe, took particular note when he saw a new commercial for Nike
running shoes. The commercial depicts Samburu tribesmen running in
northern Kenya. The camera slowly pans down to show them wearing
new Nikes. One of the tribesmen speaks in the Maa language, and a

subtitle flashes Nike's latest slogan: "Just do it." Not exactly a
literal translation, said Cronk, who knows the language. "What he
is really saying is, 'I don't want these. Give me big shoes.'"

"I don't think he had anything against Nikes. I'm sure he
thought they were great shoes. I don't see why they should change
it. It is really kind of harmless."

About JokeTribe

These all are jokes that we've had the good fortune of having other people email to us or we've retrieved off the Internet. Over time, we've sent them on to the subscribers of our various jokes lists. Since we're talking some ten years of managing these emails lists, we've built up a pretty sizeable (and FUNNY) collection of jokes. They cover pretty much any category and topic that you can imagine; from clean jokes to dirty jokes and most everything in between, including the much loved lawyer jokes and the blonde jokes and the yo mama jokes as well as those redneck jokes. Remember, we did NOT author them, but we did take the time to convert the text files to html.
