2. Sorry about that--allow me to explain.

A young man made this video and sent it to Adidas. They didn't respond at all, so he released it on social media. I found it on Facebook. It has gone viral since it was released.

Here's the link that gives the full story:

3. The film maker offered his work to Adidas which ignored his offer.

Yes, the company probably noticed that the shoes were not the latest styling. The good news for the film maker is that the short is creating a minor buzz.

4. Loved that. Cannot believe Adidas ignored the filmmaker.

Their massive loss! Still get chills every time I see it.

5. Thanks for the post Peg.




That was inspirational. Now that it has gone viral Adidas will have some 'splainin to do.

6. OMG

That's Fab, California Peggy. A complete short film in itself. No dialogue necessary.

Thanks so much for posting.

7. That was a stroke of genius.

 

made me bleary eyed. I have an old pair of Adidas running shoes in my closet. From the 80's. I bet there a lots of us like that. This speaks to that. It's so inspirational.

Hell. If it wasn't 14 below zero I might just dig em out right now. If I got back into running, I'd buy new shoes. Adidas made a big mistake here.
