Due to the biggest earthquake happened and nuclear plant disaster, after March 11th the entire country was depressed. In addition, the government forced major companies to save electricity especially the usage of air conditioner, Japan’s hot summer became hotter. adidas wanted to do something to cheer up this country and somehow own the Cool biz trend and have adidas at the center of this movement. We came up an idea to turn hot temperature into the consumer benefit, instead of hating the hot temperature, we wanted to celebrate it. Hotter it gets, cheaper you can buy adidas product.
