Adidas unites its biggest sporting icons from across the world in its latest campaign, to create a positive rallying cryto help everyday athletes believe they can overcome pressure and achieve their possibilities in sport.
The new global brand campaign is driven by feedback and insights from consumers around the world that for many people, negative pressure can affect their enjoyment of sport. To help address this over the course of the campaign, adidas will release a wide range of athlete stories, insights from experts and guidancematerials – all designed to help athletes at any level to disarm pressure in sport.
This weekend – alongside one of the biggest spectacles in the sporting calendar – the brand will kick off the campaign with a film featuring Pat Mahomes, TrinityRodman, Lionel Messi, Linda Caicedo, Jude Bellingham, Anthony Edwards, Rohit Sharma, and the New Zealand Rugby All Blacks, dedicated to celebrating athletes dealing with pressure.
Adidas worked with EssenseMediacom on media, TBWA on creative, We Are Social on social media and the Sphere’s creative team.
Set against the timeless and iconic anthem, ‘Under Pressure’ by Queen ft. David Bowie, the new film spotlights everyday athletes experiencing the weight of expectation and what is possible when they silence its impact with the joyous rallying cry – ‘You Got This.’ The 90-second film climaxes with a tribute to adidas’star-studded roster performing at the top of their game during some of their most high-stakes sporting moments.
From Jude Bellingham scoring in his UEFA Champions League debut campaign for Real Madrid, to Emily Malewski flawlessly executing her beam dismount at the 2022 German Championships – each athlete showing how they handle pressure to help inspire everyday athletes to do the same.
