adidas Originals collaborates with music visionaries Snoop Dogg, Desiigner and MadeinTYO to release remixed tracks of the iconic song “My Way” by Frank Sinatra in two new music videos on music’s biggest night.
- Snoop Dogg, Desiigner and MadeinTYO remix the iconic song “My Way” by Frank Sinatra for adidas Originals in “Original Is Never Finished” music videos
- adidas Originals turns to Twitter to launch “Original Is Never Finished” music videos during music’s big night
- adidas Originals collaborates with creators through open source to inspire a new generation redefining the meaning of originality
As a spinoff to the brand’s recent campaign film “Original Is Never Finished”, adidas Originals continues to push the boundaries of creativity by reimagining their very own work with three musical artists.
On the launch of the two new videos, the brand turned to Twitter for a takeover teasing both the songs and videos, which officially led up to the final reveal on the social platform. Reaffirming the notion original is never finished, adidas Originals continues to turn to its creators, inspiring them to redefine the meaning of originality.
“As a brand we believe in creative freedom and are always challenging ourselves to push the bounds… Open source lies at the core of Originals’ DNA and is integrated into everything we do; what we create, who we create with and how we communicate. The decision to recreate our very own campaign film, just weeks after it debuted, and launch two new re-imagined videos via social media just felt right.” – Alegra O’Hare, VP of Global Communications adidas Originals & Core
In one video featuring, Snoop Dogg, the rapper and songwriter is captured recording the track within his studio. “I’ve been doing things my way from day one – A1 to Day 1 – and doing things my way is the only way,” says Snoop Dogg. “You need to be connected to the record and give it a second life, and extend the music from its original form.” The result is an original soundtrack remixed by the artist himself.
In another video, award nominee for Best Rap Performance, Desiigner, depicts a recreation of the famous painting, St. Sebastian by Sandro Botticelli, giving this iconic work of art new meaning for today’s generation.
In another scene, adidas Originals’ repurposed their very own NMD product into masks and MadeinTYO joins a company of masked dancers to perform his original remix of “My Way”. This collaborative video featuring the two artists reinforces the notion that if you push something far enough, it becomes original again.
“After opening the conversation with our recent campaign film, we are looking to continue challenging our audience’s idea of originality. By remixing, hacking and handing over our film’s song, we put the power into the hands of the creators, in an ongoing process to prove that “Original is never finished”.” – Matthew Edwards, Creative Director at Johannes Leonardo.
