As a fun inclusion to the launch film, PUMA released these "caught on tape" ball destruction moments that were filmed around Europe and captured "Minons" around town cleaning up the destruction and confiscating the footage.

PUMA Balotelli Announcement

Filmed on location in Milan, Italy with Mario Balotelli.


The morning I was departing for Europe to film the PUMA #StartBelieving Campaign for the launch of evoPOWER,  I received a call informing me PUMA Teamsport had just signed Mario Balotelli to their roster. So we added a secret production in Milan to our schedule. In tandem with the evoPOWER on pitch production, the creative team came up with this announcement, filmed underneath the stadium, as a way to embrace PUMA's support of their new athlete by rewriting the headlines.
