Oregon Ducks: Even The Losers (Get Lucky Sometimes With Tribute Ads From Nike)

Granted, that’s not how the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers classic goes, but the meaning behind the song and the above ad is exactly the same: buck up, because even the losers get lucky sometimes. And while you may feel like a loser right now, keep the faith, because sometimes, multi-billion dollar athletic apparel corporations still have your back. Well, as long as the CEO of said multi-billion dollar corporation is an alum of your institution of higher learning and uses the uniforms of your football team as some kind of plaything for his own amusement.

Actually, the sentiment of Tom Petty’s song has absolutely nothing to do with this ad at all. Forget everything I just wrote.
