Human Billboard!

Why do we buy clothes that advertise brands? They should be paying us!


For 10 or 15 years, Neil Boorman has been wearing an Adidas T-shirt and now it's payback time. No more free advertising for Adidas. If a sportswear company like Adidas spends $150 million on advertising worldwide, surely they can spare a few pennies for us?


View the video on YouTube as Neil tries to deliver an invoice for £10,000 to Adidas.

Neil Boorman is the author of 'Bonfire of the Brands', a book and website about brand addiction and how to live a brand-free life.

I also hate the way companies do massive giveaways of 'free' stuff, just a very cheap but effective marketing ploy - who says no to something that's free?

Love this idea though, good one Neil!
