Adidas: “Break-In” - 60s

One would think Real Madrid's training ground would be more secure than this.The Spanish giants obviously didn't reckon on the Adidas Tango Squad. Named after the sportswear brand's classic football, this daring crew of freestylers launch a midnight raid.

The Tangos bounce off walls and redecorate the changing room. Once on the pitch, they're finally confronted by the club's, er, security detail: left-back Marcelo on a motorized buggy. Sorry, mate - playtime has only just begun.

Frenetic camerawork and a bullish soundtrack chime well with the brand's in-your-face mentality. We also like the idea that head coach Zinedine Zidane is constantly monitoring the club's security footage. While budding stars are advised against breaking and entering, the brand commend those with top-flight bravado.
