Inspired by their courageous pursuit of creativity, in the latest film from adidas Originals' Original Superstar series, Pharrell Williams comes face to face with his group of creative influencers. Pharrell has shone a spotlight on his Original Superstars and now he wants to discover theirs…

"We're gathered here because I consider you guys icons," he tells Pusha T, Grigoriy Dobrygin, Smithe, VJ Mian and Yoon in the latest film. "I have people in my life to be grateful to. They make me want to pay that realization forward", he continues. "You are my Original Superstars, I'd like you to show the world who you consider to be superstars".

Identified because of their ability to not be swayed by the opinion of others, from today the group of five international creatives will now share with the world three individuals they define as an Original Superstar through a series of call-outs via social media.
