Ajax and Adidas Prank Fans for Season Release

When in Amsterdam.....there is only one team, Ajax. The most successful football team in the Netherlands, Ajax Amsterdam also has the largest supporter base in the country. Each year the new team outfit is eagerly awaited. The launch of the new shirt is a media moment.

This year Ad Agency Iris Amsterdam created a campaign for Ajax and Ajax's clothing partners Adidas. Adidas's new slogan is 'all in...Adidas'.

To launch the new Ajax shirt for the 2012/13 season fake walls and cameras were built into the changing rooms of the only official fan shop in Amsterdam's city center.

As the fans try on their new season shirt the wall is pulled away and they are surrounded by players from the team.

For many this may seem creepy and lawsuits might ensue but for Amsterdammers and Ajax supporters this goes to the heart of our sense of humor. Watch the youtube clip don't miss the guy who was so scared he ran into the door.



When in Amsterdam.....support Ajax.
