Adidas Originals TV Commercial • Adidas Originals advertsiment • ORIGINAL is never finished - Raining Basketballs • Adidas Originals ORIGINAL is never finished - Raining Basketballs TV commercial • We see two generations of basketballers, 2nd draft rookie Brandon Ingram and one of the greatest, if not the greatest basketballer in history, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The heroes mirror each other between scenes a metaphor for the passing of the torch (or, rather, ball) from one legendary basketball icon to one of the future.
The two unite for adidas Originals’ new brand spot to prove that originality is never finished — merely passed from one person, creator, or player to the next.
Abdul-Jabbar was a record six-time NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP), a record 19-time NBA All-Star, a 15-time All-NBA selection, and an 11-time NBA All-Defensive Team member. A member of six NBA championship teams as a player and two as an assistant coach, Abdul-Jabbar twice was voted NBA Finals MVP. In 1996, he was honored as one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History. NBA coach Pat Riley and players Isiah Thomas and Julius Erving have called him the greatest basketball player of all time.
