adidas Originals has shared a new promotional film known as Original Is Never Finished 2018. Based on the concept of creativity’s “constant evolution,” Original Is Never Finished 2018 features a star-studded list of subjects: A$AP Ferg, Playboi Carti, Nick Young, Kaytranada, Adrianne Ho, Dua Lipa, Lu Han, Miles Silvas, Florencia Galarza, and Marcelo Vieira all show up to support and bring substance to adidas’s latest campaign. Presented as a “visual journey,” adidas Originals’ new vignette shines the spotlight on the best and brightest of all artistic fields and tackles “the idea of repetition as an expression of creativity, reaffirming that every moment in culture is in a constant state of beta.”

“With the 2018 chapter of Original Is Never Finished, we were inspired first and foremost by the theme of complacency, which is by far the very thing that blocks creativity,” explains adidas Originals Global Communication VP Alegra O’Hare via press statement. “We wanted to give a whole new meaning to the idea of being never finished. We were fascinated by our own repeated behaviors, and once we disrupted the routine it gave us the freedom to explore the unexpected. The idea of doing things over and over again, is reflected in the repition of images throughout the film and this adidas Originals “wheel of life” releases the creativity and energy of a new generation of creators including Florencia Galarza, Adrianne Ho, and A$AP Ferg, who embody the lyrics of the 90’s billboard hit ‘Keep Pushin,’ a chant to inspire all creators to do the same.”
