Jackson Yee carves new Adidas shoe for Lala Takahashi and Dough-Boy

Effects-laden TVC from Hypebeast launches a reborn 'classic' shoe in China.

This new TVC for Adidas, by Hypebeast, has a lot of eye candy. And Ad Nut is not even talking about singer/dancer/actor Jackson Yee, Japanese influencer Lala Takahashi or the rapper known as Dough-Boy—although Ad Nut stipulates that they're attractive enough, as humans go. 

Rather Ad Nut is enjoying the visual effects that fly by while the clip shows a 'classic' 1998 shoe model (called the Ozweego, for the record) evolving to a new design. Ad Nut only wishes some of the shots could be slowed down a bit, the better to enjoy the wizardry that's on display.

Dough-Boy gets pixellated

Ad Nut is distressed to discover that things from 1998 can now be considered 'classic'. What does that make Ad Nut, then? Antique, most likely. Sigh.
