Adidas's house party is continuing. The brand's earlier star-studded video, released in November 2008, has gotten worldwide attention, not to mention a Simpsons parody. Now, agency Sid Lee has moved the party out into the street, but some things remain the same. David Beckham is still there, though he looks a bit more hirsute this time, and DJ Pilooski is still spinning the tunes, though this time he's playing his rendition of Dee Edwards's "Can't There Be Love" (and no, there's nothing wrong with your YouTube feed, that's the way the song goes). Snoop Dogg is a new addition, as are Noel Gallagher of Oasis and lots of people I'm too old to recognize. Once again, it's a fine piece of advertising, making Adidas's Originals line seem both of-the-moment and retro, athletic and leisurely.
