You know the classic adidas logo , right ?


It obviously look alot like a marijuana leaf .
IMO adidas intentionaly did that to get the youth of the 60s/70s to be able to relate to the logo. It might only be coincidence though.

What do you think ?

Maybe, but everyone was too stoned in the 60s to notice.

I dont think a company would base its entire sucess on selling jumpers to stonners.

Do you really think anybody is going to be swayed in their shoe-buying decision by the addition of a weed leaf?


Well , if you saw two shirts- one with a piano on it and another one with a guitar on it. (if you are a guitarist)
You will obviously lean towards the guitar one .
I would imagine the same with adidas . If you see a piece of clothing with something that you realy like on it , you will surely consider it.

True.

Since they had that logo from the beginning , they were just lucky.
I'm sure that the logo gave them atleast some extra sells in the 60s

What do you think ?

Why?

How is that an opinion? Its not subjective, it either is, or it is not. They either did create it to market to potheads or they did not. There's no belief involved.
Ladies and gentlemen, I think the lesson here is to learn the actual meaning of words before throwing them around like Evil_Magician did here. Thank you.

It also looks nothing like a pot leaf.
