This ad mimics the famous black panther salue of 1968 olympics in Mexico City. Tommie Smith and John Carlos, 1st and 3rd in the 200m respectively, showed their solidarity for the Black Panthers movement on the medal podium while the anthem played. In addition to the fists and the gloves, they also wore no shoes to protest black poverty, and beads around their necks to protest lynching. Within hours, they were stripped of their medals and sent home.
