It has been quite a week for adidas. Over the last seven days, the sportswear giant has got the better of arch-rivals Nike and celebrated its 63rd birthday.
So to help the German sports brand celebrate, Unruly has compiled the most popular adidas commercials of all time.
It’s quite a list. Over the years adidas have produced some incredible ads, starring some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment, such as David Beckham, Lionel Messi, Snoop Dogg and even Darth Vader.
The commercials have helped turn adidas from a clothing manufacturer to a cultural icon, taking sportswear from the running track and placing it firmly on the catwalk.
That’s not to say the brand has forgotten its sporting roots. It was an official sponsor of the World Cup in 2010 and the 2012 London Olympics.
But after 63 years of production, which ads have been the most successful? Well, we have compiled a chart of the most popular, based on the number of times they have been shared across Facebook, Twitter and the blogosphere.
