International brand Nike recently started a heated debate when it used Colin Kaepernick as the face for their 30th anniversary of the "Just Do It" campaign. While people got upset over Nike using the football player who first knelt during the US national anthem before NFL games to protest racial injustice, South Africans were using the ads to have their own fun.
Local celebs like Bonang Matheba, Jacob Zuma, Nomzamo Mbatha, Minnie Dlamini, Lady Zamar, Nasty C and Nicole Nyaba were some of the faces to be used in these spicy photoshopped ads.
Though the results were hilarious, they were a little harsh too. No chill was found when these were made.
Instagram account thebackroom.za, who shared the snaps, even informed viewers that it was meant to be a joke, in case someone got offended or upset.
#TheBackRoom - since the #NikeAd which featured #CollenKapernick has sparked the #NikeAd memes we thought why don’t we bring it home. If Nike where to interview our celebrities here is what we think their catch phrases would read. P.S this is all for laughs. Breathe SWIPE left.
These quotes weren't inspirational or very deep but they were certainly the reason a number of people chuckled.
