Swedish ad students use Twitter and blog to 'pitch' for global Adidas brief

Volontaire is asking the students to adopt the Adidas approach of "impossible is nothing" in a bid to illustrate some of the agency's core beliefs, including that great ideas can come from anywhere and that companies no longer have the power to control their brands.

They have also been posting their thoughts and ideas on Twitter, Tumblr and YouTube.
