adidas Releases Illustrated Hype Video for Today’s World Cup Semifinal

adidas has had a great World Cup from a marketing standpoint. With brand sponsored Germany already in the final, and Argentina with potential to win today, the brand will be guaranteed a record 5th World Cup winner.

In preparation for the huge semi-final match this afternoon between Argentina and the Netherlands, adidas has released an awesome illustrated look at some great moments for both squads during their World Cup runs. In addition, adidas released an info graph comparing the stats of Leo Messi and the Dutch Arjen Robben during the tournament. The graph says what we already know – that come game time, we will be watching two of the best in the world go at it.


We probably won’t be seeing either side score seven goals (or allowing seven goals – ahem, Brazil), but it should be an exciting, hard-fought match throughout. Make sure to check out the flashy adidas Battle Pack cleats Messi and Robben will have on their feet, and keep it locked to Sneaker Report for more.
