In the wake of the passing of music legend David Bowie, who died of cancer on Sunday, Twitter is full of sentiments from fans and friends of Bowie celebrating the man's legacy.

Unfortunately, it also has some instances of brands trying too hard to take advantage of the sentiment. Ranking as one of the worst of these moments is the below tweet from Crocs, your favorite purveyor of foam clogs.


Crocs David Bowie


The image mixes the facial lightning bolt of Bowie from 1973's Aladdin Sane with Crocs' signature shoe. Aside from being a laughable attempt at capitalizing on the man's death, it's just a bad rendering.

Thankfully, the tweet was immediately ridiculed and has since been deleted.
