GALLERY 04: Adidas - Slugs

A creative demonstration of the new a3 Cushion shoes - which Adidas claims is its benchmark technology for coming years. The work, directed by Frank Budgen, is skilfully done and features what we assume is an invisible man and his running shoes. The reveal is both surprising and endearing and makes the ad more than just a special effects job. It also marks the first collaboration between Adidas and 180/TBWA.
