Back in 1992, there was an ad campaign by Reebok called "Dan vs. Dave" which hyped American decathletes Dan O'Brien and Dave Johnson competing against each other at the Summer Olympics in Barcelona.

The campaign soon fizzled after O'Brien failed to qualify for the Olympics making any future advertisements pretty pointless to say the least.

Recently, Dan was at the Olympic Track and Field Trials doing an interview with Michelle Beadle of NBC Sports, when the chair he was sitting in decided to collapse on live television.

No word if the chair also lost money on the failed ad campaign.
