Filmmaker Claims Nike Stole Ad Idea

Richard Greenlees claims Nike copied his idea for a commercial the sneaker giant is currently running for its Converse "peace" sneaker. Greenless created a commercial last year based on man he saw in 1996 at the Moscow International Peace Marathon who was wearing sacks full of hay as shoes. Greenless recreated the moment in a commercial promoting peace and set it to John Lennon's Imagine. Oddly, Nike is now running a commercial with Lennon imagery to promote its "peace" sneaker. Nike says its all purely coincidence.
