Adidas Ignores Student’s Commercial Made For Them, And Now It’s Going So Viral They Probably Regret It
This incredibly moving Adidas commercial created by 26-year-old student filmmaker, Eugen Merher, may well have won the Internet for 2017.
The 1m:40s commercial revolves around an elderly former German marathon runner. He’s spending a monotonous existence in a rather unlovely retirement home, until one day he finds his old battered Adidas trainers, and decides to relive his younger years by taking them for a run. The retirement home repeatedly try to quash his quests for freedom, but the end of the advert will see you stand up and cheer. Or cry. Or both.
