Adidas Original - Your Future Is Not Mine Commercial

Featuring Singer Daisy Hamel-Buffa & Song "Your Future Is Not Mine"

There's an awesome commercial from Adidas, the sneaker company, which  we consider a must see when it comes to ads. Featuring singer Daisy Hamel-Buffa & the song "Your Future Is Not Mine", the advert is a work of art in all its forms. Adidas Originals, a name deriving from many of the company’s classic styles of footwear from a few decades ago, called the commercial "Your Future Is Not Mine" as well.

A Very Well Directed Piece

 

There are certain ads which make the viewer unsure, if it is in fact, a commercial they are watching. Ads such as these tend to be beautifully filmed, produced and directed. Such is the case with the Adidas Originals ad. Using a dark and caliginous tone, director Terence Neale manages to engulf the viewer immediately as the commercial begins. Some on the Internet have also compared the video ad to movies with ominous futuristic style concepts. Perhaps this can all be tied up with the original notion or idea which the advertising campaign is promoting. The message of "Your future is yours to create" is cleverly conveyed by the actors and the director of the ad. Noting the vast amount of the credits attributed to the ad, we can see that this was a major piece of work. The commercial features a selection of what many consider some of tomorrow's most exciting & inspiring cultural creators. These include Kyu Steed, Iman Shumpert, Design Butler and Aleali May.

Lyrics Used In Advert -

I’ll never go down your road

I found my way on my own

I’ll never follow your path

I’ll make mine and I won’t look back

I’ll never go down your road

I found my way on my own

I’ll never follow your path

I’ll make mine and I won’t look back

I’ll never go down your road

I found my way on my own

I’m never gonna fall in line

Your future is not mine

Your future is not mine

Now About That Song


As it tends to happen with commercials which use a song that viewers instantly love, many people took to social media sites to inquire about the "Your future is not mine" tune. However, the song itself was originally recorded primarily for the Adidas commercial and not for distribution or download. Of course, countless viewers were very upset to find out about the song not actually being one that was sold or available for download. As of today, Kistunes is unsure whether or not  the song is actually available for sale. This is not the first time something like this has happened though. A handful of ads have had songs in them which listeners fell in love with. And just like this ad, they simply had to be content with only listening to the commercial version.

 

An All Around Winner

We implore anyone who has not seen this ad yet to take the time to do so. It is simply that great of an advert. Those watching the commercial will be captivated by the originality of it. There's also the dark and very mysterious feel side of the ad which grasps hold of the viewer's imagination. In the ad, we get to see people all going in the opposite directions of where the rest of the others are. This is all to convey the message from Adidas Original of being your own person, daring to be different. Furthermore, the actors have eerie yet captivating masks which ad to the suspense and obscure tone of the ad. Kistunes is unsure whether or not this advert has won any awards. However, if it were up to us, and many viewers out there, we are sure this advert would receive all kinds of accolades. If there were Oscars for commercials, the Adidas Original "Your Future Is Your Own" makes a strong case for winning one.
