This adidas Orginal Star Wars Cantina 2010 video features David Beckham, Daft Punk, Snoop Dogg, Franz Beckenbauer, Noel Gallagher, Ian Brown, Ciara, Jay Baruchel, and DJ Neil Armstrong. They are promoting the intergalactic 2010 FIFA World Cup. I would love to see this as an entire series of this. Please adidas, do more.
