Tide ripoff

Only fan 1 2
Isn't he such a gangsta?

Can you post the actual page with the Tide ripoff so I can include it in my email? I can't seem to find it on their site.

Thanks, Tide's now included in the mega-lawsuit.

It looks like the Tankman was completely taken off their website, as I'm getting a 404 error whenever I go to the page. The only place where they still have it is their Twitter page.

"email us a fan pic and we'll repost it"

I'm surprised they have any fans left after being caught profiting off of brand name logos illegally.

As I have said, maybe it wasn't based on the "tankman", but it was just some guy that they made cartoony and ended up as a coincidence? That's like assuming that George Zimmerman murdered Treyvon Martin without having all the facts on the table.

Trust this man, he made some of the highest rated submissions on newgrounds.

We want to destroy them. It can't end now, it must continue until we have ruined the lives of anyone associated with FADED clothing.

Did anybody bring up how they seems to be ANOTHER "Faded" clothing company that also uses terms like "fresh"?

http://fadedclothingcompany.com/collection.htm

It seems to be equally lame and bizarre..(click "team faded" at the bottom..it seems to be run by a Gap clothing model and a Victorias secret clothing model), but they don't seem to be thieves.


Tom and I have been working on something hmmm????

The only thieving that company has done is what they're charging for their merchandise.
For only $25.95, you too can wear a shirt that looks like it was designed on Powerpoint.

Neither of their names are Sergio...and their designs actually look original.
Do you think that the other Faded stole their name and slogan from these guys?

I just noticed something on their website, it says "FADED" has been established in 2005! How the hell did they manage to go on for so long?

Which website? Faded Clothing (the one the OP posted a link to) was founded in 2010.

I didn't look at their "About" page until just now, apparently the guy's full name is Sergio de Leon from Florida. Does anyone still have white pages?

It's back up, if you meant that every page of FADED had gone down.

Got some responses yesterday:

The air freshener company said thank you and asked for my address so they can send me swag.

Universal Studios has passed it on to the relevant people.

Dos Equis has passed it on to parent company Heineken (who knew Dos Equis was owned by Heineken??).

Also, I'm in Austin for RTX right now. So if you're going to RTX, come find me and say hi.


Deploy the... it's a yellow button... it's usually flashing... it makes the engines go... whoosh!

Please help fund my horror novel. I'll love you forever.
