The boys kicked off the Friday show debating the new controversial Nike “Get High” ad campaign targeting skaters in the Boston area. Are the slogans and t-shirts too suggestive?

The new Nike ad campaign has caught a lot of heat around Boston, including from Mayor Menino who suggested that the company pull the suggestive shirt display from their Niketown store, so Boston’s youth aren’t influenced to follow the suggestive drug references and graphics.

Gresh & Zo weigh each side of the debate as they break it down. Should the shirts be pulled? Is the ad campaign just a smart tactic or is it over the line? The guys are split on the issue and break it all down in the opening of Friday’s show.
