Adidas House Parties - Transmedia Planning Heaven


Adidas have just launched their Advertising Campaign for 2009 'adidas Originals house party'. Everything about this campaign is beautiful. This is like a Transmedia Planning wet dream. There is already so many little pieces of currency in this video?

Do you see any celebrities that you know?
Do you know the music track?
Do you know who the graffiti artist was?

There is so many angles to tell this story from, they have started with such a rich base. It looks like they have started too.


And finally, to build the story around ‘the ultimate house party’. Who does not like house parties? They are always the most fun, right? And what a thought starter who would be at your ‘ultimate house party’!

What a great campaign!
Nice use of mainstream and underground talent too - appeal to the masses, and keep the cool kids interested.

very cool and appeals to me as a diehard Adidas Originals guy ... hard to comment on how great/effective it is as a piece of marketing without knowing what they're trying to achieve though.

Really great campaign. Thanks for sharing. (I basically translated the message of your post to German.)

for the trainspotters:

the ad features musicians and icons Katy Perry, Estelle, Young Jeezy, the Ting Tings, DMC-Daryl McDaniels, Method Man, Redman, Afra, Ryukyudisko, Russell Simmons and Missy Elliott, athletes Kevin Garnett, David Beckham, Ilie Nastase and Mark Gonzales, and designers Kazuki and Jeremy Scott.

The “house party” was directed by Nima Nourizadeh and features the Frankie Vally track Beggin’ remixed by Pilooski.

@Emily, yeah they have got both the hipsters and the mainstream covered on this one. I also like that they have so many subcultures on it as well from hip-hop to soccer to pop music to skateboarding. Is this Emily from 'OMG with Emily' blog?

@BenShepherd I agree about not knowing the effectivness of this campaign yet but to just looking at it as a piece of information that is being talked about, I think they have succeeded in that

@Thomas, thanks so much for the translation! I guess it shows how universal the idea of a house party is and how much appeal this will have on a global level

@Rene, thanks for the breakdown! and welcome to the blog!

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
