Adidas’ newest advertising campaign has recently caught our attention. Featuring a mix of pro-athletes (David Beckham & Dwight Howard) as well as popular musicians (B.o.B. and Katy Perry), it effortlessly captures the versatility of Adidas as a global brand. The two-minute video debuts Adidas’ new “all in” mantra and focuses on their three sub-brands: adidas Sport Performance, adidas Originals and adidas Sport Style.
Below are some behind the scenes photos from the video shoot with Katy Perry and “Jeremy Scott for Adidas originals” designer, Jeremy Scott.
If we were keeping score, we would say this would make it Adidas: 1, Nike: 0. Your move, Nike.

So how do the two soft drink brands measure up? Well Coke’s “Goal Celebration” took the nostalgic route, bringing back a little old school clip to warm viewers’ hearts. The commercial also features K’naan’s infamous Wavin’ Flag which has also been featured as the Young Artists for Haiti song. Pepsi’s “Oh Africa” pulled the celebrity card, not only featuring a song by Akon, but also featuring the rapper in the video.
