VIDEO VAULT

Early commercials featured scores by hip hop pioneer Kool Moe Dee and spokesperson M.C. Hammer. There was the spot with the knight in full armor… out for a jog in his BKs. And with irreverent, cocky catchphrases like “How You Like Me Now?” “Choose Change” and “You Ain’t Nothin’ Without Your BK button”, British Knights offered an alternative, fresh take on the footwear game, all with a sly smile.
