Donald Glover’s new Adidas ads are cracking up Instagram

0



Donald Glover stays busy.

On the heels of his headlining performance at Coachella last week along with the recent release of his much-hyped indie flick “Guava Island,” co-starring alongside Rihanna, the ubiquitous actor-writer-musician managed to also make time to collaborate with Adidas on a shoe line. He promoted the venture on Instagram with five new ads for the shoes.

In this somewhat surreal, alternate universe, Glover plays a sort of house-boy to the fabulous Mo’Nique — who spares no opportunity to make a hilarious dig at Glover. In the surreal ads, titled “1985,” “Avocado,” “Dusty,” “Polenta” and “Timber,” Glover can be seen doing chores for his high-maintenance mistress, including chopping wood, fetching the newspaper and even harvesting honey as his Mo’Nique roasts a stoic “Dusty Ass Donald,” as she calls him, who takes her reproach without complaint.

For Adidas, the “Donald Glover Presents” line will be updated versions of classic Adidas sneakers: the Nizza, the Continental 80 and the Lacombe. The shoes should be a reflection of the “Dusty” persona, with features such as uneven stitching, inside-out lacestays, frayed canvas and laces and a painterly three-stripe — all giving the look of an old shoe. No word yet on how much sneakerheads can expect to pay for fashionably pre-worn kicks.

The “Donald Glover Presents” sneakers drop April 26.
