In a juxtaposed shot between Brad and Dan reclining on deck chairs to a visibly stressed British caller, who is worrying about his girlfriend's 'haircut' (transparent narrative). His stressed expression coupled with "Well I can't lie?!" shows his visible stress, and Brad/Dan's advice: “make sure you care about other peoples’ feelings.” seems obvious but isn't to an incompetent Brit.
In what advert, Dean 'from Cyprus' is on holiday with the backdrop of holiday mise-en-scene, and Dean looks uncomfortable awaiting his friend: won't just confront him upfront. Suggests even the idyllic lifestyle does not rid Brits of their problems.
Adidas did 1-day takeovers of popular sites, YouTube, MSN and sports websites to bring together "sport, street and style" and appeal to digital natives.

Sense of personal identity (B&K) with the feature of regular teenagers wearing conventional, casual wear and the regular settings of a club that are familiar to the audience. It provides a source of information to update and inform/educate audience.
