Okay, I was buffaloed by Nike propaganda? WTF?

Here we have this nice philanthropic website from Nike Foundation:
http://www.nikefoundation.org/ which I bought into.

Then this was brought to my attention:

So, WTF? I'm pissed at myself for being duped by Nike's "Public Diplomacy" efforts, and I am now posting this blog to bring attention to this crap in an effort to redeem my previous ignorance.

All comments are definitely welcome.

I'm laughing now! Nike ads are showing up at the right under Bill Payers!

Good on ya, Mike. Please commence the non-self-flagellation. I've been duped, too.

Don't we have a community here on AN to educate ourselves about how propaganda works? Yes... we do. it's called "Progaganda"

Thanks all. True, the message is a good one. I'm just irked that Nike is using it to make themselves look better in the world view.

It's okay to support the message in the video. Just don't send them a cent.

Hi Mike, don't be so hard on yourself. I saw the add, and I liked it very much up to the point where that Nike sign appeared... then I felt tremendously disappointed for a second. I know about the bad reputation that such company has. But I said to myself that even though it was something coming from Nike, it was a good message and if we can separate the message from the source and focus only on it, we can see it makes a good point.
