an adidas world
if there is one brand that i love and and have in abundance in my wardrobe, it's gotta be adidas. LOVE adidas. i'm completely brand loyal to adidas for casual wear clothing. (although for footwear, i branch out a wee bit with adidas, vans and puma)
ever since i was 12 and saw a girl at my elementary school sport the blue polyester zip up jacket with matching stirrup pants, i was hooked. and from that moment on, it was a life of stripes for me.
that's why i loved watching football (that's english football y'all) especially liverpool football club whom adidas outfits. footballers are the hottest looking athletes in the world. one of my favourites is lfc's #8 steven gerrard. woot! and sure, david beckham is yummy in armani underwear, but i think he's way sexier rockin' the adidas.
not only does adidas have killer clothes, but they have THE coolest ads and commercials. this one released to celebrate adidas' 60th anniversary features the likes of david beckham, russell simmons, dmc of run-dmc, missy elliot, katy perry and the ting tings at a house party for their originals line and accompanied by an awesome remix of frankie valli's song beggin'.
branded by 3 simple words, adidas' marketing and way of life is as follows:
impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. impossible is not a fact. it's an opinion. impossible is not a declaration. it's a dare. impossible is potential. impossible is temporary.
impossible is nothing.
i've already blogged about my love for adidas before and i'm sure this is won't be the last time either. but to MPJ mentioning the compliment on my adidas, you've trumped me on my blog! (this blog that had been sitting in my draft box waiting to post) someone who appreciates and has cool taste in music and clothes!
