Watch out son! Take it easy cat! Hold up dog! Love these simple but smart ads for Adidas. They were created by Maja Grunwald and Georgios Kouveliotis who won the Student Bronze for Toys, Games & Sports at the International ANDY Awards 2009.

This videoclip has been directed by J.A. Bayona, the spanish director of "The Orphanage" (El Orfanato)
The spanish band "Nena Daconte" plays the song titled "El Aleph"

Bayona is one of a few spanish directors that works in your United States.
