Availability: Search Defunkd
Fact: In 1987 Nike came up with a tag line for promoting a new group of Nike Air shoes — “Revolution in Motion.” Nike and its ad agency wanted to use the Beatles’ classic 60s song, “Revolution” during the commercials, so they paid $500k for rights. But not to the Beatles though – to Michael Jackson who had purchased the Beatles music catalog in 1985.
Approximate Value: $1000
