From The Victory Formation:
The picture to the right shows Nation’s Giant Hamburgers latest ad campaign. Since they are a northern California chain, it makes some sense to go with a theme. In this case, they chose to use the Raider Nation. They even put this ad on a billboard right next to Oakland Alameda Coliseum. The problem is that Nation’s never asked permission from the Raiders to use the slogan. And, like any good team once owned by Al Davis, the Raiders are suing.
The complaint, in part, reads:
“The “Raid a Nation’s” slogan is an obvious reference to the famous Raider Nation mark that identifies the Raiders and their loyal fans.The advertisement is easily visible to thousands of game day fans, as well as countless others who drive by the complex every day.”
On top of borrowing Raider Nation, they also added an eye-patch to the burger (to make it look mean). In essence, they are making it look like the Raiders have partnered with the team to sell hamburgers.
