Adidas is taking a kick at animation in honor of the 120-year legacy of Spanish soccer club Real Madrid.

Dreamed up by Parisian creative agency MNSTR, the three-minute Odyssée Grandeza captures the enduring enthusiasm of fans through the style of Japanese anime, drawing parallels with the club’s own international resonance.

Barcelona-based BOL produced the film, while Argentina-based 2veinte directed and animated the short.


The story, featuring striker Karim Benzema, transports three teenagers to a mystical alternate-reality version of the historic Santiago Bernabéu stadium, where they have to battle it out with supernatural forces over a game of soccer. As their superpower, they’ve harnessed the communal spirit of Real Madrid fans.
