Nike Wins in Adidas Promotion to Give Away an Island at the NFL Combine


By lauradud84 / /

In Adidas’ latest promo, they offered to give away an island (valued at just under a million dollars) to the man who ran fast enough at this year’s NFL scouting combine to break Chris Johnson’s 4.24-second 40 from a decade ago that no one has touched since. Big caveat: the player had to break the record wearing Adidas shoes.

Washington receiver John Ross amazed everyone by running a 4.22 40-yard dash on Saturday, breaking Johnson’s record. But the poor dude was wearing a pair of Nikes. Good for Nike, bad for John. Hopefully, Nike comes through with a little something to say thanks for the free advertising.
