Video : Break Free – Be yourself, always
A mock Adidas advert made by film student Eugen Merher has gathered almost 10 million views on YouTube after being turned down by the sportswear giant. The awesome advert, titled ‘Break Free‘, tells the story of an ageing marathon runner living in a retirement home, who seems unhappy with his day to day life. Determined to break out of the home, the elderly man is seen making daily attempts to break free and run again, only to be captured by the nursing staff. The workers even take away his trainers – Adidas of course. However, things take a positive turn for the elderly man when his friends in the home help him get his trainers back – leading to an ending which has touched the hearts of people all over the world.
