Justin Bieber’s brand new adidas Neo ads: who will buy these shoes?

Justin Bieber

Last fall, we reported that Justin Bieber had signed a two-year contract with adidas to act as spokesperson and model for the adidas NEO (complete with ridiculous gold high-top sneakers to boot). Boy, adidas must be thrilled with all of the spitting and the peeing controversies of late, but try and forget about those distracting stories because we’re supposed to be looking at the shoes in these brand new ads.

I know. These ads are so dumb, but they will probably appeal to the Bieber demographic if adidas wants to sell these shoes to …. I don’t know … girls. Guys won’t want them, right? I like how Bieber is trying to convince us that he can play the guitar and drums by clutching instruments like the music actually means something to him.

Meanwhile, Bieber has had yet another one of his tour buses (this time in Canada) get busted for weed although he wasn’t on the affected bus at the time of the raid. Sharon Osbourne has also decided to weigh in on the Bieber problem: “He wants to be a mean boy, and he’s about as mean as a f—ing kitten, and he’s trying to act out. It’s like pi–ing in a bucket. It’s like, ‘Oh, we’re the bad boys!’ F— off! You don’t know what bad is.” Speaking of bad (as in “awful,” have you seen this video of Biebs attempting to cover Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” at his Sunday evening concert in Detroit? Bieber couldn’t even get the first line correct. So painful.

More adidas NEO nonsense. Something nice — at least he’s wearing a shirt.

    Everything was fug and everything hurt.

    This blank expression of his has to go.

    • Stubbylove says:

      So agree – something about those pics that makes me physically angry. He’s the epidemy of DOUCHE.

    • Meg says:

      Every. Single. Time.

      That dumb dumb dumb expression on his stupid little face makes me so irritable. I don’t even know why… plenty of people have posed with weird facial expressions, but not one makes me feel the same level of distain as that douche-rocket’s creased forhead and faux-concerned expression. Like what, are those drum sticks experiencing troubles at home or something? Why the concern?


    • ZigZagZoey says:

      Yup, he always looks like a dog that just got caught peeing on the rug.
      I’m kinda surprised anyone would do a 2 year contract with him ~ Nobody wants him to last.

      • Marieeeee says:

        Perfect description by ZigZagZoey!!
        No, Justin, no! Bad Beiber, outside!!

        This nerve-grating little brat is living in a bubble of delusion, while the whole world just laughs at him. Sorry life.

    • snackysnaxx says:

      He looks like he’s having a hard time on the potty.

  2. bowers says:

    Just NO, just plain NO.

  3. Downton fan says:

    Who will buy these shoes? Unfortch a lot of people. Wouldn’t it be great if suddenly people stopped buying his concert tickets and all his products and he would begin to disappear into obscurity. It’s beyond me how he is treated (like a god) and how he treats people (like they don’t deserve an ounce of respect) UGH

    • Andrea says:

      “Who will buy these shoes? Unfortch a lot of people.” Really? His fans are teenage girls are they going to buy these shoes for their boyfriends or brothers? I don’t see guys in their teens or early 20s going out to buy these. I think Adidas is about four years too late. There was a time all the teenagers had that stupid side flowing hair which required a constant head flip to maintain but that’s so over.

      • Norman Bates' Mother says:

        You’d b surprised how many boys are Bieber-fans. I have a 10-year old nephew and basically all his friends and school-mates, boys and girls, like or pretend to like Bieber. They want to have Bieber-hair, Bieber notebooks, Bieber backpacks, T-shirts etc. They are like sheep. The leader tells them Bieber is cool and they all blindly follow. My nephew is an athlete and he usually likes the typical boy stuff – soccer, cars, superheroes etc but his friends and the girl he has a crush on all like Bieber and he feels like he would be rejected for not liking him.

      • tammy says:

        practically every boy at my high school owns adidas, bieber or no bieber.

  4. Bianca says:

    He looks so stupis and annoying I want to smack his face numb.

  5. Ag says:

    No one. I hope.

  6. blue marie says:

    points to Sharon, she’s right.. want to be bada-s, ain’t nothing but a punk.

    and Beiber rapping is as laughable as Miley will be, ridiculous.

  7. rose says:

    I can’t with that stupid face he makes. He looks stupid. Like he’s trying to form a thought but he just can’t. It’s in every picture!

    • Laura says:

      I know right!!!! he looks like someone just asked him 1+1, don’t burst a blood vessel JB the answer is 11…snort

    • Nicolette says:

      Reminds me of the face my kids would make when they were babies and were doing something in their diapers.

    • Nerd Alert says:

      Right! Who did this photo shoot? Why wouldn’t they direct him to MAKE A DIFFERENT FACE?

      The only explanation I can think of is that my mother was right, it really does stay like that if you do it too much.

    • Emily C. says:

      Him and Jaden Smith. But I’ve even seen the occasional picture in which Brad Pitt is doing it. Hate it. Don’t understand it.

    • Chicagogurl says:

      to me it always looks like he’s going through a bout of constipation and trying to poop

      • m says:

        I agree, it totally looks like he’s constipated… and the thumbnail cropped picture on the homepage actually looks like he is sitting forward on a toilet.

  8. Claudia says:

    lol he even does the constipated/surprised raised eyebrow thing when he’s looking down, what a douche. As for that first picture with the book, YEAH RIGHT.

    “Oh, this? Yeah I read. I’m like, so full of depth and soul, man. Picture books are some hardcore shit. Where’s my mom at?”

    • Bianca says:

      I know, right? It looks like it’s his first time holding a pen. He looks so unnervingly dense.

      • Claudia says:

        Don’t mind the awkward pen holding, Bianca, he’s trying his very hardest to color within the lines 😉

    • PortlandJan says:

      I would suspect that he was trying to channel Alistair Cooke. But he would have to be literate enough to know who Mr. Cooke was.

      • islandwalker says:

        Oh, I miss him. He had such a great voice and refined intellect…. just like Bieber! Not.

    • Bianca says:

      Hahahaha! Colouring IS hard!

  9. Willa says:

    He has that stupid brow face in every pictures!

    • AlexandraJane says:

      Yes! I was looking at the brow. what is it with him and Jaden Smith? They will be looking at botax in no time if they keep it up!

      • BoBo says:

        I know… I cannot stand that look and that is just what I was thinking – Jaden does it all the time too. It’s like offensive – “What you lookin’ at” type of thing.

  10. Sixer says:

    I never comment on Bieber posts on this site – what really is there to say about this awful child over and above what the articles say? – but I just thought I ought to mention that I thoroughly enjoy reading the shade coming his way. The bitchier the better. And I never tire of the baby and his car seat photo. Never.

  11. Adrien says:

    They look like dollar store sneakers. Also, I read that as NEC, the Japanese electronics company.

  12. Lucy2 says:

    You know how some shoes squeak when you walk? I bet these go “douche, douche” with each step.
    I can’t see them selling big. He’s trashing his career, his only fans are girls, and I doubt most boys in the market for something like that would want to wear Baby Bieber shoes.

  13. Hautie says:

    Anytime I see high tops in black, red and white… I think of Micheal Jordan.

    And his original Air Jordan’s from the 80’s.

  14. Steph says:

    Um, is that the only facial expression he could muster. Sheesh.

  15. Gabriella says:

    I’m sure all the swaggy lil’ adults out there will be all over these shoes.

  16. DawnOfDagon says:

    Girlfriend can’t even hold a drumstick properly.

    • NerdMomma says:

      I realllly hate to defend the kid but he does legitimately play guitar and drums. I was forced by a 6 year old girl to watch his movie.

      • Stef Leppard says:

        It’s true. He is a horrible little douche but he’s legitimately a musical genius and plays guitar, drums, piano, and trumpet and has since a very young age. I watched his movie of my own accord [hangs head].

      • Gabriella says:

        “legitimately a musical genius”

        I hate how the term genius is being tossed around these days. If Justin Bieber is a musical genius, how come he doesn’t write his own songs? If Justin Bieber is a musical genius, what is Mozart? Or… let’s not even go that far, what is David Gilmour?

        Please, an ape can play the drums. (I mean it)

      • Cyndi says:

        I think the musical genuis part comes in due to he taught himself to play all of those instruments. And playing the drums really *isn’t* that easy. You have to be able to play two or three different beats simultaneously. I pick up instruments fairly easy, but drums? Uh huh…a basic drum roll is hard to do. (o;

  17. diva says:

    I like Adidas. Don’t know if I’ll buy them since I don’t get to wear sneakers that much. I know my ex will buy them. Not because of Bieber but because the only sneakers he’ll wear are Adidas.

  18. iwannarock says:

    Blake Lively and him have the same photo shoot face.

  19. Madriani's Girl says:

    I don’t know anyone – guy or girl – who would wear these ugly-a$$ hoof covers.

  20. MonicaQ says:

    I’m a complete sneaker head and have different colors to match different outfits (acquired over the years, I’m too broke to just be like “Let me go buy the LeBrons!”) and even though I need some new red, black, and whites…I’d rather keep rocking the Converses with the hole in the toe than wear those shoes.

    One day I’ll wear grown up shoes. One day.

  21. dorothy says:

    This is the face that Adidas wants to represent these shoes? My, how that brand has fallen.

  22. DreamyK says:

    Ugly shoes. All the cool kids wear Supra’s, Nike’s or Van’s. Heh.

  23. dcypher1 says:

    How dare he try to do an eminem song he wishes he was eminem. Jb is a wack rapper and always will be. He has no skills. I know eminem was no Angel in the past but now he’s mature, sober and a dad and actually humble and seems remorseful of all the things he did.oh yeah and eminem actually has talent to back to back him up unlike bieber who probably won’t have a career in the future when all his fans grow up and realize he’s lame.

  24. JL says:

    Adidas just needs to name them

    “White Trash Flash” and be done with it.

  25. AustinMJ says:

    ugh. What’s with the douchie lifted eyebrows in every shot? It’s like a modified duck face. He’s practiced that one in the mirror a lot, you can tell. Someone needs to tell him his face will get stuck that way if he keeps it up.

    Cant say it enough. I LOATHE this little sh!t.

  26. betteboo says:

    He’s working his best ‘Blue Steel’ face. He must’ve practiced for hours… and its about as good as his cover of Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself.

    An epic *fail* on both counts I’d say

  27. INeedANap says:

    God, I hope Em is the one to finally smack down this kid.

  28. MellyBee says:

    I’m a 42 year Eminem fan girl. THAT was not rapping. Ugh! This kid! I can’t even. . .

  29. fluffyrabbit says:

    Nothing against gay men but watching Just NeverIn Beaver try to perform Lose Yourself, I can’t help but to envision a very femme gay male at a really bad drag show, right before he gets tossed off stage.

  30. Poutinessky says:

    Let’s say something nice: I kinda like the sixth picture

  31. Mika says:

    He needs invest in some fillers to fix that premature wrinkling on his forehead.

  32. efwcheryl says:

    Butt ugly. The shoes are really unattractive also.

  33. Unbeweavable says:

    Someone inject his forehead with Botox so he can stop making that awful face. Give some to his BFF Jaden too.

  34. Jenna says:

    This is so wrong… but I can’t stop giggling over it.

    Is it only MY computer that has decided to place an ad banner on every photo, without fail, directly over the shoes he is supposed to be working? I know it’s not really, but wow does it feel like even the computer and the ad companies want this kids source of income blocked! When even the tech rises against you, it’s time to go home!

    (This bit of randomness brought to you by a cocktail of prescription muscle relaxers and migraine meds hitting an empty stomach – mainly because since I threw my back out last night I can’t make myself go downstairs so it’s just the pills and some highly caffeinated diet soda. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Owe.)

    • Hakura says:

      Mine is doing the same thing! I had to stop & shut the adds because they all covered the shoes. xD Would’ve been nicer if they’d have auto-covered his face

  35. Hakura says:

    He’s trying (& miserably failing) at pulling off the whole ‘male model ‘sexy puppy-dog pout’ look… In an advertisement supposedly aimed at GUYS. He’s trying to sell these shoes to other guys, but making the same faces he uses on 13 year old girls? Somehow I don’t see too many teenybopper girls buying these shoes.

    What the f*ck is the Adidas company thinking? And I mean this purely from a marketing standpoint, not a common-sense ‘why the f*ck put your product anywhere near the obnoxious diaper-wearing-spitting-up-little p-ssbucket‘ standpoint.

    • Alexandria says:

      I hate his face. Hate it.

    • TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

      Good question about the marketing knuckleheads, but you could ask that about many marketing decisions – one reason why ads for cars, cosmetics, etc. were better in the 70s-90s; you actually had talented people that are now long gone replaced by ones that only know junk celebrity culture.

  36. MeowuiRose says:

    I rarely get worked up about a celebrity behaving badly but I just can’t with him. He has such opportunity and success yet he is so careless with it. I want to slap him, his mom and his handlers for allowing him to act in such a terrible bratty way. He reeks of desperation and neediness to be “cool”. I’m pretty sure he and Miley Cyrus are cut from the same cloth. Oh and Selena Gomez loses major points for continuing to get with him. It makes me wonder if she has the same attitude as him.

  37. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Yeah, I see Adidas already regretting this decision to hire the Biebs. All of his fans are twelve year old girls. Seriously, the only Justin Bieber fan that I have met is my neighbor’s thirteen year old granddaughter. One of the very first things I heard about him (this is when he was flirting with Beyoncé at the Grammy’s at like 13) was that he sings like a girl. No joke, that’s what all my classmates said.

    I don’t know whose idea it was for him to sell guy’s stuff, because a dude would rather go barefoot and homeless than buy or wear any of Bieber’s stuff. He needs to stick with perfume if he’s going to continue acting the way he wants

    And Eminem? Really? Please find some other artist to butcher.

  38. Freakieness says:

    Two words: Vanilla Ice

    • lisa says:

      at least he can fix houses or whatever he did on that show

      i cant wait until biebs is working at tim hortons

    • Mia says:

      Whew, yes! His hair is totally doing a Vanilla Ice impression all on it’s own.

  39. Mia says:

    I’m just mad at the quality of the photos for a professional ad campaign. Did one of his dumb ass friends take these photos while they were high? A 5 year old could take these with a disposable camera. And rapping Eminem? Justin is such a pathetic, thirsty try hard.

  40. St says:

    The most hilarious part is that he thinks that he is all so cool and stuff in that video, rapping Eminem, doing rappers moves, waving hands, grabbing his crotch … But I’m sure that 95% of his fans have no idea what this song is and who is Eminem. They were 3-4 years old when this was released. And Eminem is not around lately. I’m sure they don’t know him, 8 Mile movie and Lose Yourself song. You can even hear how crowd is almost silent.

    Also that look that every person does when he/she wants to act – “I’m surprised and confused”. People were laughing that Jaden Smith was doing it in After Earth. Here Justin tries to act too and tries to show some emotions but looks surprised and confused…

  41. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    He is embarrassing. And he is also going to have some hard core fore head wrinkles by the time he is 25. Stupid little boy.

  42. sneaktango says:

    It’s just a marketing tool to boost up the word “Adidas” on search frequencies with Bieber. Also, its another ways to expose their brand name to many people(girls). I don’t think they really want it to sell the shoes under Bieber’s brand.

  43. womanfromthenorth says:

    I am sooo over the pants and crotch grabbing, pointing at it and more grabbing. And his singing…

  44. vv says:

    The sad puppy dog look is done. That kid’s forehead bugs the shit outta me.

  45. jwoolman says:

    You forgot to include our favorite quintessential Bieber picture: the big bodyguard lifting him into the van while he’s trying to struggle.

  46. angela says:

    why does he always look like he escaped from a gay porno….
