Meet the guy who trolled Nike Store the most creatively
Every Saturday morning, mentions of the Nike Store Twitter account are filled with people slandering the brand who missed everything posted that day. One such persistent person is 23-year-old Charles Henderson, who lives in Mobile, Alabama, and is best known for his Twitter account, @est1991__.
It all started when Henderson originally tweeted on May 20, “How special you have to be to get gifts from Nike like shoes and stuff.”
Today he shared what he thought was Nike reimbursing him for always wanting to get a pair of the Nike Air Max 90 “Cork” or “Oreo”. Flyknit Runners. After receiving a package from Nike, Henderson was the target of Nike’s Grade A trolling. He was blessed with corks and Oreosbut only in the literal sense.
Henderson opened the box sent to him by Nike, only to find two packs of Oreos and a whole bunch of corks made for wine bottles. Along with these goodies was a framed print of the tweet he sent to Nike Store.
To confirm his trolling, Nike Store tweeted at Henderson: “Got eem.”
I wanted to find out the real story behind this care package, so I contacted Henderson. Here is his story.
Tell me what happened.
When the Air Max 90 “Corks” finally came out, I missed them because I was at work. Since then, every time Nike Store tweets, I reply to them and say, “Not Oreos, not Corks.” One day I tweeted and said, “How much do you need to get freebies or free shoes from Nike, Inc.?” I guess they saw it and got my address through my IP address or my Twitter, because my Twitter has the same email address as my Nike account. I guess they were sick of me saying, “No Oreos, no Corks,” and I thought they sent me the Air Max “Corks” or the “Oreo” Racers. I saw the box and it said Nike.com. I opened it and saw a whole bunch of caps, then dug around and saw the Oreos and the plate.
How often do you buy sneakers from the Nike Store?
I’m pretty good at shopping for sneakers on Nike.com, if I’m not at work. The only thing I use is a fast server. I don’t use bots and I don’t believe in them. My internet is very fast. It costs a lot of money. I spend $150 a month. I don’t pay that much every month. But if I think there’s a lot of heat going down, I’ll pay for the internet. Otherwise, I’ll just pick up the sneakers at the local store.
