Martin has been helping out with the new Adidas campaign and pointed me to a mini site heâ€™s been seeding. The site, dedicated to football is also about the release of the new Predator Absolute shoe. A Flash animation takes you on a tour through the features of the shoe (I never knew there were so many parts in a football shoe!) and after the tour, youâ€™re invited to reassemble the shoe against the clock yourself.
Other sections of this branded site are the â€˜playersâ€™ which features 5 screens where in every screen a part of the powers of the player is revealed and illustrated in an original way.
The â€˜TV roomâ€™ features commercials, player interviews and behind the scenes edits. Itâ€™s pretty fun the see, so youâ€™ll definitely have to check this section. There are 7 commercials. All of them are funny. Concept: twelve international players go through the streets of their cities looking for a dream team to compete against.
Cole vs. Cisse – (England vs France)
Xavi vs. Gomes – (Spain vs Portugal)
Kaka vs. Riquelme – (Brazil vs Argentina)
Nakamura vs. Del Piero – (Japan vs Italy)
De Jong vs. Kuranyi – (Netherlands vs Germany)
Maestroni vs. Lozano – (US vs Mexico)
The â€˜Downloadsâ€™ section has wallpapers, screensavers and ads. Yes, ads! High Quality PDF versions of screenshots from the superb commercial theyâ€™ve aired a while ago. Hereâ€™s the YouTube link for that clip.
The â€˜Gearâ€™ section is a store where you can see all kinds of boots, jerseys, pants and hardware (like shin protectors etc) and is more or less mandatory. Nevertheless, itâ€™s well designed.
You can also play some games on the site in the quite extended â€˜Gamesâ€™ section. Youâ€™ll have to register to play, but itâ€™s worth it.
Last but not least, in the â€˜Pro Skillsâ€™ section you can learn how to practice your moves and improve your game. The â€˜Bag of Tricksâ€™ link currently features Morientes displaying his skills.
