Nike’s Colin Kaepernick Ad Isn’t About Taking a Moral Stand – The Jim Jefferies Show

Nike’s Colin Kaepernick Ad Isn’t About Taking a Moral Stand – The Jim Jefferies Show


Welcome to the Jim Jefferies
Show, I’m Jim Jefferies. We’re
back! And not a moment too soon. Last week Nike unveiled a new ad
celebrating the 30th anniversary of their
“Just Do It” campaign. Starring today’s most
controversial athlete. KAEPERNICK: Believe in
something, KAEPERNICK: even if it means
sacrificing everything. KAEPERNICK: Don’t ask if your
dreams are crazy. KAEPERNICK: Ask if they’re crazy
enough. It’s amazing that they’re using
a spokesperson who isn’t even
playing his sport. I imagine if Nike does bring out
a shoe for Colin Kaepernick, it has to be a slip-on shoe with
no laces.
I imagine if Nike does bring out
a shoe for Colin Kaepernick, it has to be a slip-on shoe with
no laces. Because, that’s gotta be hard
for Colin. Every time he bends down to do
his shoelaces, people get their cameras out
like, “Ooooo, there’s a new movement.” And he’s like, “no no no, I’m
not protesting this Starbucks.” “I just had to do me shoes up.” But, seriously – Do stop shooting black people. Not counting a few random morons
burning their shoes, the
campaign has been a huge
success. Since Kaepernick became the new
face of Nike, sales have increased 31 percent. So thank you, Nike, for standing
up for kneeling. Even though most of your
political donations are to
republicans. And you just signed an eight
year deal with the same league
that refuses to let Kaepernick
play. In fact, Nike is kneeling so
much for the NFL that they’re
changing their slogan to, “Just do it, but make it quick
and don’t get it in my hair.” What did I say? But people are smart. Who could ever be duped into
supporting a conservative
company that also happens to have a
well-known history of labor
abuses. CARREY: I bought me some
freedom-friendly Nikes. CARREY: As a salute to Colin
Kaepernick, to Nike, CARREY: Congratulations on your
fantastic choice. Thank you so
much. All these years later and Jim
Carrey is still talking out of
his ass. Nike is a corporation, and
corporations don’t have
progressive values. They have shareholders. Nike didn’t hire Kaepernick
because they care about social
justice. They hired him because you care.>>Corporations have interests.>>And if they thought they
would lose money.>>If they thought they would
minimize shareholder wealth
rather than maximize it, they
wouldn’t do that.>>But what they’re also
learning is that people do want
companies that take strong
stances. People like it when companies
seem socially aware. “Being woke”, some might say. I wouldn’t say it, but that’s
mostly because it doesn’t sound
right coming out of a white,
Australian’s mouth. Woke. On fleek. Yas Queen. Turnt up! I shouldn’t be allowed to say
any of those things! Actually, I do like saying turnt
up. Turnt Up! I’m gonna try to use it in
sentences from time to time this
week. Turnt. Up. And it’s not just Nike. This year’s Super Bowl ads were
a parade of pretend “wokeness”. Including the one where a Martin
Luther King speech was used to
sell cars.>>You don’t have to know the
second theory of thermodynamics>>in physics to serve.>>You only need a heart full of
grace.>>Soul generated by love. What was that? That ad is pretty insensitive,
especially when you consider
that trucks are the second most
racist kind of car. The list goes: Dodge Chargers, Trucks, and Herbie the Love Bug. Sure, it sounded like Herbie was
talking to us with his horn. But that was the censors
bleeping all the n-words. (Beep. Beep.) No, Herbie, no! No, if you don’t like it, YOU
move to a different
neighborhood. Look, if Colin Kaepernick sells
shoes, that’s not Nike taking a moral
stand. It’s just good marketing. And to the people burning their
shoes in outrage, you’re not mad at Nike for
hiring Kaepernick. You’re mad because you live in a
world where Colin Kaepernick is popular and respected. Destroying shoes you already
purchased doesn’t affect Nike’s
sales one bit. If you really wanna get them
where it hurts, then you have to hit them at the
source, like, I dunno– Burn down a Nike Factory–or– or you should burn down an
Indonesian child who makes the
sneakers. Or just a regular Indonesian
child. Or burn down the cows that the
material comes from. Or burn down the grass that the
cows eat! BURN IT! BURN IT ALL! JUST DO IT! BURN IT! Sorry. Let’s not burn anything. I got a bit turnt up there.

100 thoughts on “Nike’s Colin Kaepernick Ad Isn’t About Taking a Moral Stand – The Jim Jefferies Show

  1. Jim always saying the correct thing 99% times. yes it is about money not about doing the right thing for these companies. if only politically correct morons would understand that.

  2. NFL FOOTBALL FANS ARE ALL IDIOTS AND SELF CENTERED ASSHOLE WHO WILL GET WHAT THEY DESERVE CURSE ON ALL OF THEM MAY THE COUNTRY FUCK YOU IN THE ASS

  3. He doesn't play in the NFL because he sucked, not because of his moronic & ignorant views on Police shootings. The stats on Police interactions don't lie, but he is too lazy to study the numbers, too lazy to stand, and too lazy to improve his craft; that's why he is out of the NFL. Nikes are overpriced and over hyped, so Kaepernick is the PERFECT spokesman for them.

  4. Nick not crazy they know who paid there all they things not white people a lot of them don't know what nick is so do you think they care about what you say about them they got they money how about you do you have it

  5. The dig at Jim Carrey is like he thinks Jim actually doesn't know that NIKE isn't some great supporter of the left values company wise we all know Jeff lol but Did you forget why he's not playing Colin lost his chances of ever playing football again for a social issue and NIKE decided to hire him for this campaign when they don't even need him to do it really he's in the commercial for 2sec they could have used footage of him kneeling or a press video and them still having a deal with the NFL is hilarious to me the NFL has to wear NIKE for years reminding us of Colin while we watching the game trust me they want him to go away not be in a huge NIKE campaign though everything else of course Jim is right about but people aren't dumb about NIKE just because they are praising it everyone keeps being condescending about this it's becoming redundant

  6. Why r ppl and companies still feeding these black ppl on the idea tht their oppressed when this bs first started it didnt take much research to learn tht wayyy more white ppl were by police but anytime tht was brought up to some terrorist in BLM they would either just say it a lie, tht white ppl deserve it somehow, or it was some form of "white privilige" lol but i have yet to see any white mobs marching saying white lives matter because its common knowledge tht bad shit happens sometimes and ppl will do dumb shit tht may cost them their lives. And in the rare case tht a office kills someone for no reason then he will be prosecuted because its illegal. Its abt as stupid as feminist saying "no more rape culture" lol rape has never been tolerated in the western world since it became an established civilized country

  7. Nike saw that over 90% of the world's population think Trump is an absolute twat and realised that they could make a fortune by turning their products into the opposite of a MAGA hat

  8. What you do is invoke a boycott against the brand or the person, while voicing the criticism. Don't burn your money, just stop giving it to them.

  9. I wanna clap so loud you listen to me from the other side of the Atlantic. This was a great segment. Corporations don't care. Even if what Nike did was a good thing, they still don't care.
    Jim, you can say "yas queen" to me anytime you want. :3

  10. "innocent people that happen to be brown not be gunned down by law enforcement"

    In 2017 987 people were gunned down by law enforcement in the USA.

    458 whites, 223 blacks, 179 Hispanics, 127 other or unknown.

    Resource:
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/police-shootings-2017/

    What do you think how many of these were innocent ? How many % of the blacks and how many of the whites or Hispanics were innocent ? Well the truth is that only 68 of them were unarmed.

  11. Funny … Keaperdouche protest about oppression … but stands for the face of a company that uses sweatshops …. fucking hypocrite

  12. I would have buy some nikes but not because I believe in the company's stand but because if people prove this to be a profitable position it could give Kaepernick more contracts.

  13. Jim Jeffries is pretty much a twist on John Oliver’s style of comedy on Comedy Central. Savage and liberal with a hint of drunkenness. On the Nike shit though, I was fucking lost on how many comments I’ve seen of people supporting Nike over this. There’s people out there that are buying those shitty ass overpriced shoes just because of seeing the moral pandering ad equivalent of clout chasing with social justice. Those shoes aren’t gonna support minority communities. They aren’t gonna provide situation diffusion training for cops in underserved and underprivileged communities. They aren’t gonna build healthy relationships and communities for kids of color so they don’t have to grow up either fearing or hating the police or becoming a target for them. All those shoes will do is give you the fictitious idea that you’re supporting a cause you couldn’t probably give half a shit about. That’s it.

  14. You hear that other black people? Stop shooting black people. Cause, you know, you're a far greater threat to blacks than cops are.

    Just saying.

  15. sales didn't increase 31% at all , and CNN was all for Kaepernick , and what now they're against Nike for using him , stop flip flopping and flapping around in the breeze like spineless gutless wonders believing crap thats on TV and in the media

  16. When i get turnt up I like to get lit. And by getting lit, i mean lighting things on fire… is how it would have gone if I were writing for Jim Jefferies. By the way, everyone knows you're an Australian white guy. Especially the Aborigines your ancestors murdered and cannibalized.

  17. Hey wanker, just stay in your hometown and bbq some shrimp! Seek the truth cunt, find out sales are up 31% but what is not being told is that Nike accounts inventory buy backs into their sales and yes it does and has had an effect on the company. But you having such a strong moral character can look the other way on labor abuses, and stay on point with guy who's not in the NFL but has a really good cause! You fucken hypocrite! If you want to be a real hero activist why doesnt he leave the racial aspect out of it and just call it what it is police injustice and brutality? What about the 700+ white males shot vs 380 black Male shot by police! Why dont you mick stand up and ask why aren't those cases widely published mate? Why doesnt the media expose the public to this? Would it be that it would tear down the media narrative of racial divide? Stick with some Steve Erwin jokes bloke!

  18. Really impressed Jim didn't fall for this nonsense! I don't really care either way about the whole Kaepernick thing, but for hoardes of incredibly dumb fake lefties like Jim Carey to be so impressed by a huge capitalist machine like Nike is both comical and depressing. These type of fake leftwingers have zero consistency and the Nike bigwigs must be pissing themselves laughing when they look at their increase in revenue.

  19. Child labor is not really an issue in Indonesia like in Pakistan or India, all of nike labors are adult, they just paid minimum in Indonesia (which is around 200$ a month). There are surely child labor in Indonesia, but only in uncertified factories.

  20. People hate to hear this but believe it or not people in the third world do have agency. As bad as the working conditions are in various factories they take those jobs because they are better than the alternative. This isn't to say people shouldn't put pressure on corporations to improve as much as they can, just that getting a huge Nike contract in your city isn't a bad thing economically, especially in the long term.

  21. Say what you like, but the fact is, that if marketing research proves that it's profitable to put Kaepernick in an ad campaign, then that proves that the majority of Americans aren't murderous, racist bigots.
    I think that's good news.
    Thank you, Nike.

  22. From one black man to another.

    The cops are least of the black man’s (or woman’s) worries. Within the streets of Chicago and elsewhere. We as black people are killing each other in “bulk”.

    Why in the hell is Colin Kaepernick in the streets of Chicago kneeling? You see black folks don’t want to talk about that. See that's what wrong with us Black Folks we are afraid to speak the truth of what’s REALLY going on within our Black Communities but we have no problem pointing the finger at others. But the truth will set you free!!! The Holy Bible speaks of pointing the finger:

    Hosea 4:4-19 (New Living Testament) “Don’t point your finger at someone else and try to pass the blame!”.

    We have thousands upon thousands of innocent babies, youngsters and some adults dying in the streets of Chicago from Black On Black murder crime. But yet the black man’s (or woman) mouth including Colin Kaepernick’s is shout close about that issue compared to the average of 1 or 5 black men (or women) shot by a cop per year.

    Wake up NEGROES we are killing ourselves and our babies. This is what the white man (or woman) want YOU to do so they want have to worry about doing it themselves. So, at the same time have conversations about cop shootings on black people and Black On Black murder crime in Chicago and nationwide.

    Apparently “Black Lives Don’t Matter” within the streets of Chicago.

    How STUPID and IGNORANT can a race of people be. Enough SAID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Colonel Gentleman's list of Social Movements that need a Slap In The Mouth
    • Feminism (they've got shmart mouths!)
    • Vegetarianism
    • Tourism
    • Racial equality
    • Geometry
    • Buddhism
    • Object Oriented Programming (I've got no idea what it means)
    • Cubism
    • The prohibition against settling thing in duels, like proper men
    • Polytheism (I've faced twice as many so-called deities as Captain Kirk!)
    • Waiters who cough expectantly for tips
    • Female taxi drivers
    • Communism
    • Did I mention tourism? (they wear gaudy outfits!)
    • Liking cats

  24. I've been screaming this all week, and nobody's listening as usual. I'm cool with Jim Carey, but he made me wanna puke, and every idiot sheep in the audience. THnks, Jim. It's nice to know that one American…..oh yeah:) THanks, mate!

  25. He didn’t sacrifice anything. He was raised by white rich people and he didn’t say shit when he was a starter. He didn’t say shit until his day was over. Way to try and keep yourself relevant because you failed at football. Suck a dick

  26. Hashahaha! The Kaepernic Cucks are funding Red Wave 2018 and Trump 2020:

    https://sports.yahoo.com/nike-donated-three-times-much-money-republicans-democrats-year-161529995.html

    Keep that money flowing to the GOP, stupid Kaepernick Cucks!!!!

  27. Why watch a game that 60 minutes of play takes 3-4 hours? No other sport are the players so overpaid and lazy. I think unless you like to sit and drink beer for hours with nothing else to do there is very little to enjoy about it. Catch the 10 minute highlight 2 hours after the game and you just saved 4 hours of your life. Just my opinion so if your offended change your panties and take a walk.

  28. if collin knew anything about morals he would have taken his stand on his own time and not on his fans time. they bought the tickets they paid for that bit of time, it wasnt his to take any kind of stand on.
    so, fuck kap, fuck nike, and fuck it I will have myself another beer!

  29. nike took a gamble against NFL's dislike in regards to the protest, yes it is about capitalism, but at the same time, its about supporting what the buyers of Nike support, and that is the black lives matter movement.

  30. YET ANOTHER dumb white man who PURPOSELY goes out of his way to try to shit on something positive in the name of white privilege.
    DEPORT THIS ^^ IDIOT back to whatever cave he crawled out of.

  31. Just do it… what Nike tells the children in Indonesia working for a dollar a day making their $120 shoes. Way to go liberals. Keep supporting the freedom friendly Nike corporation. Lol

  32. I'm not condoning police brutality or targeting ANYONE because of their race, but I strongly disagree with the wording of the ad..believing in something, even if it means sacrificing everything, should be on the tombstone of every service member that lost their life doing something they truly believed in, whether they were black, white, hispanic, chinese, ect…

  33. Let's call an ace and ace here. Colin was a quarterback who had his success but, for whatever reasons, became a mediocre quarterback. He got cut and to try to save his career he came up with this kneeling bullshit to try to deflect away from the fact that he was, in fact, a mediocre quarterback who had lost his starting position and was looking at not being on a roster at all. He took a flavor-of-the-month social justice warrior issue and ran with it. Congratulations, Colin, your ruse worked. People have forgotten what a shit quarterback you are and now you are making millions off of an issue that has been proven over and over to be a lie. You grew up in an area that has a median household income of $60,000 a year. The only oppression you knew about being a person of color came from your history books and programs you watched on TV. And people like Jim Jefferies pick up the torch and roll with it so they don't look like racists or to feed their self righteousness.

  34. Colin Kaepernick is nothing more than an anti-white racist bigot.. he needs to shave and do something about that disgusting hair on his head too.. and hopefully Mr Jeffries here will become one of the next high-profile celebrity suicide cases..

  35. I see nothing special about this failed idiot Colin I hope the American people wake up and quit sucking nikes cock!!! Americans are idiots!!!

  36. The Indonesian factory dorms for Nike workers have dirt floors and brick walls, as well as no windows to fuel the flames with oxygen. So you can't burn them. They are fire safe.

  37. Your stupid comment, "Stop shooting black people," illustrates why the country has rejected the Occupy Kneelers, just as they did Hands Up, Don't Shoot and Black Lives Matter. Blacks are not being hunted or killed by cops just because they have nothing better to do. A black man is more likely to be shot by another black man. We know the facts and reject the idiocy.

  38. There was a lot of good material in there. One thing, however, that really made me angry was learning that Dodge trucks were just basically using Doctor King's words to pimp their sales.

    He was one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century and his memory should not be trivialized like that.

    (Two quick things:
    1) I'm a 65 year-old white guy;
    2) I have never liked Dodge- Chrysler to begin with (they're just cheaply made.)

  39. That Dodge ram commercial… For real Jim took the words from my mouth… What waaaaaasssss that??!?!?!??

  40. Bigot Jim Jefferies edits interviews to push his bullshit agenda while making anti Islam statements when he thinks the camera is off

  41. Love the show,
    But why isn’t Colin getting any shit for taking part in this?
    If someone could give me a reason for that I’d be really pleased…

  42. "…Nike is a corporation, and corporations don't have progressive values, they have share holders." All-American capitalism in a nutshell.

  43. I hate it when companies make ads that appeal to your inner self and make you start to question your choices and such. And most of them are fucking car ads.
