The only thing interesting about this is that a corporation is usingbioregional overtones to market a new commodity. Seeing as a lot of anarchists are into the idea, I still don’t understand why Cascadia has a flag.

Portland Timber Army and Cascadia Feature Prominently in new Adidas Commercial “A New Revolution”
“Revolutions are born from simple ideas. Insights that become emotions. Desires that become innovations. Systems that unleash true potential. It’s time for a new revolution…”
Albeit it for a soccer advertisement, one can’t help but love the subtle context that Adidas has placed their new ‘Revolutionary Smart Soccer’ product line into.
The Portland Timber Army play a starring role, front and center in the new commercial which focuses on midfielder and forward Darlington Nagbe, set against a sea of waving flags, obscured in a green haze. Other players who appear include SKC’s Teal Bunbury, FC Dallas’ Brek Shea, and Real Salt Lake’s Javier Morales.
Shot over the course of several days including the Timber Army’s 1-0 win over Kansas City Last month, over a few events including Timbers 1-0 win over Kansas City the piece is meant to premiere Saturday during the Chelsea-Bayern Munich Champions League Final on FOX.
