If someone could explain wtf is happening in Adidas latest campaign ‘Original is never finished’ that would be handy- Adidas latest stars a bunch of hip hop artists including Snoop Dogg covering Frank Sinatra’s tune ‘My Way’.

The spot also features pop stars Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange), Stormzy and Mabel, as well as Los Angeles Lakers small forward Brandon Ingram, former NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and more.

“Everything we do for Adidas Originals is a work in progress, as true creativity is never finished,” Alegra O’Hare, vp of global communications for the Originals and Core brands said. “We are constantly challenging ourselves and breaking down the boundaries that limit imagination; we hope to inspire all creators to do the same.”

“Each of the scenes are, in a way, a reference to a moment of cultural relevance,” JL creative director Wes Phelan said. For example, the ‘Birth of Venus’ scene is “the digital wasteland—a symbol of the pace at which we are going through modern technologies.”

Check out the real long credits list:
