The Ting Tings paint Hollywood neon for Adidas
On Saturday night, the Ting Tings painted the town day-glo at a private party hosted by Adidas.
The British duo whose catchy pop anthems “That's Not My Name" and "Shut Up and Let Me Go," performed at a secret venue behind the Fredericks of Hollywood flagship.
In a bid for collectible cover art for the band's single "Great DJ," partygoers, many of whom had entered a contest to win admission, were given squeeze bottles of neon paint and proceeded to squirt them on the walls and all over each other. Luckily, Adidas was handing out black tracksuits to use as a roving canvas.
The random splattering and fumes caused some targets, including Perez Hilton, to quickly run outside for cover, but the paint-splattered twentysomethings merrily raved on until the band's finale.
Artwork from the event will be displayed at the Adidas Original store on Melrose. 8009 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles. (323) 658-6091. 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
