We’ve had some great reactions from followers of all clubs on adidas & Chelsea’s “It’s Blue, What Else Matters” viral that debuted over the weekend.
The campaign is calling upon Chelsea fans to show their commitment to the club by pre-ordering the new shirt without seeing it – in the same way the Chelsea squad have shown their commitment by covering themselves in the blue of the club.
So, when adidas offered to show us a little bit of ‘behind the scenes’, we thought we’d seen the most interesting part of the advert.
But upon seeing the candid images of the players and staff at work on the set, we’re sure you’ll agree that these were well worth sharing!
