Classic Ad: Marilyn Monroe, Nike – ‘Statistics Lie’


Marilyn Monroe Nike Ad - Statistics Lie

Hopefully you’re as interested in classic ads as I am, because it’s petty likely I’m going to keep posting them. Today check out this fantastic, and absolutely spot-on, Marilyn Monroe Nike ad, “Statistics Lie.” Nike ran this in print media back in the 90’s (1991, I believe), and even distributed some smaller ones to lucky acquirers. Hit the jump for a fully enlargeable image (right click and all that) as well as the ad’s copy.

“A woman is often measured by the things she cannot control. She is measured by the way her body curves or doesn’t curve. By where she is flat or straight or round. She is measured by 36-24-36 and inches and ages and numbers. By all the outside things that don’t ever add up to who she is on the inside. And so if a woman is to be measured, let her be measured by the things she can control, by who she is and who she is trying to become because as every woman knows, measurements are only statistics, and statistics lie.”
