Apparently, it’s difficult to differentiate North and South Carolina.
Just ask Nike.
On the store website, Nike was selling Carolina Panthers T-shirts which is perfectly fine. However, the T-shirt had “NC” letters on a silhouette of South Carolina, along with a Panther logo. Oops, someone clearly made a mistake and no one noticed until it was too late.

There are obviously many ways to interpret this blunder. Did Nike think the Panthers play in South Carolina? Or that North Carolina’s silhouette looks like South Carolina? A picture says a thousand words.
Nike has since taken down the T-shirt from its online store, but fortunately someone received the now limited-edition T-Shirt and took a picture for all of us to enjoy.
