Viral Video: Adidas Adds Celebs To Star Wars Cantina

by Dan Koelsch

The Adidas Originals brand is gearing up for the 2010 FIFA World Cup by teaming up with LucasFilm to create a very unique commercial that will air during the sporting event. The Mos Eisley Cantina scene in Star Wars is one of the most famous scenes in film history, but the sports apparel company decided to reimagine it as a FIFA viewing party and add David Beckham, Daft Punk, Snoop Dogg, Franz Beckenbauer, Noel Gallagher, Ian Brown, Ciara, Jay Baruchel, and DJ Neil Armstrong. Watch it below.




Here’s what Adidas had to say about the ad:

“The theme of the 2010 Originals campaign is a neighbourhood of originality,” said Tom Ramsden, global director of communications at Adidas Originals. “So when we thought about how to best present Adidas’s partnership with Star Wars and the 2010 Fifa World Cup we immediately thought of temporarily turning the Mos Eisley Cantina into a place to watch some football and invite some friends along.”
