Nike athlete, Rafael Nadal, won his NINTH French Open title this past weekend. That’s unfathomable. Nike wanted to commemorate this unprecedented achievement in a unique way, by making a statue of Nadal out of red clay. Thoughtful gesture. Horrifying execution.
According to Nike Inc, “The sculpture of Rafa was installed in the window of the Cinquième Set store in the heart of Paris, accompanied by a plaque that reads: Legends are made from different stuff.”

Like I said, this is no doubt a kind gesture, but releasing that photo on the Internet is just ASKING FOR IT.
Yep, we’re done here.
