Katy Perry’s got a good face. It never lets her down. She can be launching a perfume wearing a sombrero, dressing up as Father Christmas or appearing on The Simpsons, but her face always does an impressively good job of pretending she wouldn’t rather be sat in her tracksuit bottoms eating ice cream and watching Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus with Russ. Presumably it’s this flexibility, this professional dexterity of spirit, which persuaded adidas to have her face as the first recognisable face in their new ‘adidas all in’ video. It’s a belter.

The face Katy Perry pulls in the opening few seconds of the video can be described as her ‘I’M GOING TO DO SOME WELL SWEATY DANCING AND THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO STOP ME SO DON’T EVEN BOTHER’ face. Reckon you can pull that face? On demand? No chance. You need a professional.

Other professionals adidas has hired to pull faces that nobody else can pull include Lionel ‘I’M REALLY GOOD AT FOOTBALL’ Messi and David ‘YEAH BUT I TAKE A BETTER FREE KICK AND STILL WANT TO WIN THE MLS AND GET SOME MORE ENGLAND CAPS AND AS LONG AS I’M AT TRAINING VICTORIA CAN’T HAVE A GO AT ME FOR NOT PUTTING THE BINS OUT’ Beckham.

Congratulations to adidas on an epic video, and to everyone else for their faces.
