For its new, wildly impressionistic ad, Adidas Originals turned to two odd-couple musical icons who have always done things their way: Frank Sinatra and Snoop Dogg.

In addition to Snoop, the spot features pop stars Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange), Stormzy and Mabel, as well as Los Angeles Lakers small forward Brandon Ingram, former NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and more.
