adidas uses iOS technology to give away their newest collab with Donald Glover at Coachella

Selected festival attendees with iPhones were surprised with an ‘Airdrop’ photo of Donald Glover’s (aka Childish Gambino) new shoes he created in collaboration with adidas.

The only catch was that they had to sign a contract to state that they would attend Childish Gambino’s set and wear the shoes all weekend.
