Gravity Defyer Shoes: Part Deux

Ok ok ok. I'm first going to apologize for the shortness of that last post. Basically, i had to get that image up immediately to let it (the image) sink in to your brain. Did it sink? I mean, ok, i'm just going to throw this out there.

Their logo is a sperm or spermatozoon (thanks pamela) as the intelligent people call it.

I feel as if i've just overdosed on crazy pills, and not even the generic brand. I'm talking the legit ones.

There are a few explanations as to why a company would use a sperm as a logo

a) The company is run by monkeys. (probably orangutans because they're kind of immature like that)
b) The man/woman in charge has a good (awesome) sense of humor.
c) The company is run by a bunch of guys with smoothies (think ken doll).
d) There is actually nobody running the company. Through a remarkable amount of luck, all the molecules came together and formed what we would call a shoe factory, and through an even more remarkable amount of luck, they appeared on the interweb.

Anyway, regardless of how it happened, this situation is quite similar to the time Michael Jordan grew a hilter mustache.

Obviously there is a period of time where someone could have raised their hand and said "hey, uhhhhhhh, does anyone else think our logo looks like a sperm?" Instead, they chose to keep silent. Let this be a lesson to all of you who choose to do nothing. This is what happens when you sit back and let people think for themselves.

Sperm shoes.

Matt - you should really do some research before you write a post like this. Turns out they meant it to look like sperm! On their home page there is a diagram of the shoe and pointing to the sperm it says "seed of life logo" and right underneath it, their reasoning says it all, "because it's cool!"

Get with the times man, sperm in where it's AT.
