60th birthday parties. Usually a time for sober reflection on a life mostly passed and the slightly embarrassed brandishing of a shiny new bus-pass, before your dentures slip into your fourth Baileys and you collapse, snoring, into your favourite armchair. At 6pm.
adidas have done it differently. To mark 60 Years of Soles and Stripes, they’ve put together one of the finest set of ads yet. David Beckham, FHM cover-star Katy Perry, Missy Elliott, the Ting Tings, Russell Simmons from Run DMC, Method Man and legendary tennis swordsman Ilie Nastase all feature in House Party (above) to discuss favourite sneakers, great parties, career highlights and more.
It came out on TV and cinema last week, as you have no doubt seen. So check out FHM’s exclusive format right here, to go behind the scenes on the ad and interact with Beckham and co.
