Adidas: Ready to Run
How do we go about re-launching Climacools - pure running shoes - in France to 14-19-year olds, despite the fact that studies show that French teens hate running? By giving them a good reason to run with the Operation “Ready to run.” The concept: each time a teen tries on a pair of Climacools anywhere in France, they have a chance to be chosen to carry out a mission and take part in an extraordinary race in their city. How? Some guys kidnap them in-store, take them into a van, give them earphones and instructions before leaving them to their own devices in the middle of the street, followed by 2 cameras and a drone. They’re given an hour to get to the other side of the city, following athlete Teddy Riner’s (world's judo champion) instructions remotely, taking on a series of challenges that’ll see them immersed in a completely crazy race, during which they’ll interact with adidas stars.
