Are sperm cool? Really?

September 29, 2010

Have you seen the ad for the “gravity defyer” shoe?  (Yes.  That’s the actual spelling.)

When I first saw this shoe in an in flight magazine, I thought that the logo must be something else.  It must be something obscure.  Surely no one would intentionally put a sperm on a running shoe.  Would they?  Yes.  In fact, they have.  Why?

According to the website, it’s a “Slick Seed of Life Logo Because it’s cool.”

Would you wear a shoe with a sperm on it?  Would anyone?

      It’s an exaggerated sperm. They call it a “seed of life” logo.
