While many of us mourn and still can’t believe the loss of a truly unique and irreplaceable talent, someone at Crocs thought it would be a really good idea to “honor” David Bowie by putting a Dollar General knock-off of his lightning bolt over a picture of one of their rubber devil hoof shoes. This is when using someone’s death as a brand opportunity goes terrible wrong. When Crocs got a load of shit thrown at them for this, they deleted the tweet, but a little thing called “command+shift+4″ exists. So now their work of evil lives on forever.
What does Crocs even have to do with David Bowie? They need to save this shit for when Crocs lothario Mario Batali goes on to the great beyond. Or when my neighbor who wears different colored Crocs at the same time (she’s the Punky Brewster of cat ladies) dies. I doubt David Bowie even knew what a Croc was. If he tried to wear a Croc, it’d probably melt and turn to dust. (By the way, if pictures of David Bowie wearing Crocs exist, don’t send them to me. Nobody needs to see that.)
I would tell Crocs to go to Hell, but I’m pretty sure the address of their headquarters is: 666 Satan’s Cum Stain Lane, Suite F U, The Ninth Circle, HELL.
We really need a palate cleanser:
