My [good friend and shoe designer,] Adi Da'ler.

I don't think I ever paid much attention to this when listening to the original "My Adidas". The scratched-in horn stabbiness covers up the transgression on many of the non-chorused bits.

dj BC (Run-D.M.C. x Tom Petty) - "Free Adidas"

This dj BC smoosh-em-up highlights the vocals a bit more and makes it obvious that they're really bigging up their "Adida" throughout much of the song. I don't know what's going on here. I may stick it on axemefi next week and see if this is some slang/dialect thing that I just missed somewhere along the way.

"Adida" is the plural of "Adidas". They don't just wear one shoe.

I prefer to wear Adidums. For less money, I am able to get extra stripe.

I love free market economy!

Are you sure. I always refer to them as my Adidases.

"Honey, have you seen my Adidases?"

"What?"

"My Adidases."

"Your what now?"

"My Adidases."

"I'm not sure I..."

"My Adidases god dammit! My Adidases! My Adidases! What part do you not understand of 'my Adidases'?"

"Why are you yelling at me?"

"Because you're not helping me, woman. It's a simple question. HAVE. YOU. SEEN. MY. A DEEED ASS ESS?"

"I don't know what you're talking about."

"Are you crying now? Why are you crying? Stop crying."

"Look baby, I'm sorry. It's my fault. I'm sorry. Come here. Come here baby."

"It is your fault. What's wrong with YOU?"

"I'm sorry. I just want to know where my shoes are. Do you know where my shoes are? I need my shoes. Any shoes."

"Well, your Adida are in the closet under the laundry?"

"My what?"
