You'd think that after the shit storm that was Kendall Jenner's Pepsi commercial, the model would be a little more careful before agreeing to star in her next commercial. Evidently, that's not the case.

Adidas' latest ad series, called Adidas Originals, is a series of short videos released on the brand's Instagram. As pointed out by Teen Vogue, the comments sections on the videos featuring Jenner have been blowing up, with many criticizing Adidas for casting a model as opposed to an actual athlete.

Each video places its subject (Jenner being the subject in two of the videos) in various futuristic contraptions while wearing Adidas gear. Jenner and some of the other subjects also recite the following lyrics from Frank Sinatra's "My Way" during the videos: "I did what I had to do. I faced it all and I stood tall. I did it my way."

Some believe that the hate Jenner is receiving is misdirected, when it's really Adidas who is at fault.

A few criticized the lyrics Jenner recites in the ad, arguing that she has not actually faced that many obstacles, as the words suggest.

Plenty of others stepped in to defend both Jenner and Adidas. After all, Adidas is technically a sportswear brand, a.k.a. both a sports and fashion brand.

May this be a lesson to Kendall Jenner: Next time you get an offer to star in an ad, think about it very carefully.
