Art is therapy for athletes in Adidas ads

Adidas has released a few teaser trailers, including the one above, for its new ad campaign, which breaks on Tuesday. Each spot shows an athlete painting or drawing while talking about the obstacles he or she has overcome. The spot here features NBA star Gilbert Arenas. Other athletes in the campaign include Jonah Lomu, Lionel Messi, Alyson Felix and David Beckham, who may not have had kidney disease but has overcome his own obstacles. See three more teaser spots after the jump.
