Tony Hawk Now Selling At Walmart

Tony Hawk has just announced a license agreement where his products will be sold exclusively, but yet is he to embarrassed to say the name Walmart – notice he say’s “retailer” not Walmart?

“I’ve worked closely with the team at Cherokee Global Brands to create a launch plan appropriate for the number one retailer in Canada. In my many visits to Canada on skate tours, I am consistently humbled by the response that Canadians have given to me, the Tony Hawk brand and skateboarding in general. I will be fully committed to the success of this launch through my social media, marketing, and appearances. It’s going to be a great ride!” – Tony Hawk / MarketWatch

Zero cool, but signing multi-million dollar contracts – do you really think Tony cares about being cool anymore
