dumbasses are blowing up their Yeti coolers (that they paid for), and will have to buy another cooler. All over Yeti discontinuing an old discount program.

It makes as much sense as buying a drink at Starbucks and having them put 'Trump' on the cup. Or buying a Dixie Chicks CD to run it over.

It took owners blowing them up to make folks realize they were dumb? How about the fact that a good amount of Yeti Owners paid a week's pay for a cooler? Love those stickers on Trucks though. .. Takes me back to my Oakley days.

No matter how hard one tries, he'll never be as cool as a dude in Panasonic spandex wearing Oakley goggles, with his head stuck in what looks like an inflatable sex toy.

Seriously though, whoever that is looks pretty serious about it all. Some people just make things look cool. If I snapped a picture next to a Rover in the middle of nowhere, it wouldn't go down like that.

Garrett takes a picture, PM, or some others here? They just look epic. I look like I'm about to steal the damned thing; either that, or I look like I just caught the guy stealing it.

Ever notice that? Lewis Hamilton can race all he wants, but he'll never look as cool Dan Gurney doing it.

Cheers,

Kennith

x2. Granted, social media perpetuates the shit out of "issues." But to some extent companies (and celebrities) seem to be alienating their primary source of revenue (people) lately

With Yeti stickers falling out of favor I wonder what decals will show up on every JK and spacer lifted pickup in town? Maybe Salt Life will make a comeback!

Big corporations have always made deals with other companies. Yeti no longer giving NRA members a 10% discount is hardly a big deal. It happens all the time. Promotions come and go.

Some dumbass wants to blow up his $300 cooler... have at it. It just shows their intelligence level. I dont particularity care for Yeti coolers or the NRA for that matter. I just dont understand why people have to make this such a big deal and take it to the extreme of shooting up or blowing up coolers just to protest no longer getting a 10% discount? And yes social media plays a HUGE factor in hyping this up.

Pay a company for their product. Then destroy their product you paid them for already. Genius. Sort of like paying $50 for a titanium coffee mug.

^^^ Exactly. At a minimum if you owned a Yeti and were embarrassed by it, stick an NRA sticker over the Yeti logo and keep on truckin.

But then they can't disguise their vanity of Facebook views under a cloak of social justice!

I'm going to smash my AR-15s to pieces with a Yeti cooler, then rape my nephew.

This equates buying an AR 15 and cutting it in half.

They should have used diesel fuel it would have made a better explosion or just add some propane in the mix it would have made it more entertaining do it right or set on the porch and watch
