David Beckham, Rita Ora, Pharrell Williams and Damian Lillard are not superstars. Or at least, that's what they'll tell you in this dramatic new "#OriginalSuperstars" spot for Adidas.

Johannes Leonardo in New York created the 90-second spot, which will be accompanied by six more 30-second executions. It's the agency's first work for Adidas Originals since being added to the brand's roster of agencies last year. 

Filmed in black and white, the spot has a timeless feel to it as it celebrates 45 years of the iconic, three-striped Superstar shoe.
