The new adidas Originals back-to-school campaign launches this week with a little something extra: the latest Ultraviolet Sound trueWidget. The sleek, viral music player, sponsored by adidas Originals and developed by trueAnthem, comes fully loaded with free music tracks and exclusive adidas Originals promotional offers. The "New School of Thought" campaign marks the first virally spun music widget for adidas Originals and the first fully integrated branding campaign from breakthrough modern music label trueAnthem.

"Ultraviolet Sound's fan base is dynamic and a perfect demographic match for adidas Originals - a brand with a strong musical DNA. The band experiences more than 10 degrees of separation from each widget grabbed - proving the Ultraviolet Sound trueWidget to be an excellent viral vehicle for the adidas Originals back-to-school campaign," said trueAnthem CEO Brad Barnes. "trueAnthem is like the NASCAR of the social networking age - brands sponsor the vehicle and tap into fan loyalty."

trueWidgets allow fans to play, download and easily pass along music from their favorite bands to their friends. Fans will be able to stream or download the 11 free songs on the adidas-sponsored Ultraviolet Sound trueWidget, including the new release of the "Ooh I Like It" remix with DJ Larry Tee. Each song is introduced with customized, 8-second adidas Originals trueAds (or jingles) created and mixed by the band.

Additionally, an exclusive 30% off back-to-school footwear, apparel and accessories coupon is embedded within the widget for download and on/offline redemption. Ultraviolet Sound band members will also wear adidas Originals gear at upcoming concerts, promotional appearances and in a new video slated to be shot this fall in Los Angeles and New York.
