Launched last week, the campaign was created by Adidas and its global communications partner, 180 Amsterdam and RIOT.
The 90-second ad features Messi and Villa, plus ex-France and Real Madrid star Zinedine Zidane driving a car ‘at speed’. The ad launches online first to reach Adidas’s target audience, as well as promote the brand ahead of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. The campaign will then run on television globally.
It is backed by Adidas’s 50 Days of Fast campaign on www.facebook.com/adidasfootball, which features the likes of Kaka, De Rossi and Michael Ballack. Adidas is the official sponsor, supplier and licensee of the FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa and the 2014 event in Brazil.
