…That Time Alberta Politicians Used the NIN Logo on a Shirt
Many politicians often fuck you like an animal, so it makes sense that three political figures have co-opted the Nine Inch Nails ‘NIN’ logo for a shirt design.
In Alberta, Canada, Premier Rachel Notley, along with city Mayors Don Iveson (Edmonton) and Naheed Nenshi (Calgary), displayed their united political goals on Twitter through shirts that featured the classic NIN logo and the phrase, “Notley Iveson Nenshi: Building Alberta Together.”
Needless to say, those who have trouble with maintaining a sense of humour or like to take veiled shots at others on social media, went on about copyright laws and discussing how “lame” they feel the shirt is.
Nenshi, to his credit, responded to the latter remark by stating, “Of course it’s lame. That’s why it’s funny.”
Nine Inch Nails founder, Trent Reznor, has yet to comment on the shirts. Chances are, he’ll let this slide through the downward spiral. These shirts aren’t going to hurt anybody today.
