Ads We Love: Adidas football fresco

In celebration of the World Cup, Adidas has launched a series of unconventional, high-profile ads across Germany. We just laid eyes on this one: A 9,000-square-foot fresco, painted Sistine-chapel-wise on the ceiling of Cologne’s central train station. It took Hamburg-based illustrator Felix Reidenbach 40 days to complete this pantheon of soccer gods, featuring 10 superstars of the sport (all Adidas-sponsored, of course). Click the image below for a closer look at the lads, who include the UK’s David Beckham and Germany’s Michael Ballack. Created for Adidas by TBWA/Germany. (Hat tip to Bruno)
