    Just for Feet, "Kenyan Runner" (1999)

    An ad that pushed the boundary of insensitivity, and was partly responsible for the company folding some not so many years later. A Kenyan male running barefoot and chased by a group of white operative, perhaps, and then apparently drugged.

    He awakes to find new, snazzy running shoes on his feet and we are to believe that was a good thing. How are we supposed to feel that way?

    Culturally insensitive to say the least. We've come a long way since 1999, but we have a ways to go.
