The student director Eugen Merher of Germany crafted the perfect Adidas commercial despite it not getting picked up by the major brand.

In his story he depicts the tale of a former marathon runner whose body and soul are decaying in a retirement home, until he finds an old pair of Adidas sneakers.

“We tried sending it to [Adidas’] communications department but they didn’t really react,” Merher, a 26-year-old student at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, told The Huffington Post.
