I listened to what that swoosh said
Look at what that swoosh did
The Nike logo stands for “Just do it,” or more appropriately, just buy it.
He followed what the swoosh (the Nike symbol) told him and they destroyed him because he lost the sight of who he was and what the shoes really were. They were just another object. He fell in love and became absorbed by it just like everyone else caught up in this consumer culture, and it ruined him.
