The athletic brand has created a series of satirical advertisements in celebration of the anniversary of the Air Max 1

Often times, when a company comes out with a viral marketing campaign, other companies try to get some of the momentum by creating their own spoof ads. Not to be outdone, Nike created spoofs of its own signature product on the 30th anniversary of the Air Max 1. The ads include an RC model, complete with remote control, a model designed to act as a flowerpot, and a model that was soaked in tomato sauce. Each of the ads is clearly satirical, with a professionally-designed edge, thanks to artists Ava Nirui and Alex Lee.

“Ava and I share a sense of dark humor—and a commitment to not taking anything too seriously,” Lee told Dazed. “After all, when you boil it down to its elements, it’s a bunch of Nike sneakers. Even when working on the fake ads, we wanted to keep things punchy and fun, like classic Air Max ads.”
