While Nike and adidas spend hundreds of millions of dollars marketing their products, New Balance is benefiting from the insightful work of an artist named Hayoung Jung. Jung created a captivating viral piece promoting the New Balance 1300 shoe using projection mapping that is destined to attract a multitude of views.

The 1:36 viral piece is a simple, yet extremely effective piece as it uses a variety of colors, illuminations, and designs to draw the attention of viewers to the shoe. Check out the amazing video below:
