PLANO, Texas, July 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- What happens when you mix a Bad Bunny with a Mischievous Cheetah? The hottest capsule collab of the year.
When Cheetos® and global music superstar Bad Bunny first introduced the Deja tu Huella™ campaign in 2020 to celebrate the impact that Hispanic culture has made on today's society, they set out on a mission to inspire the next generation to Deja tu Huella, a phrase that translates to "leave your mark." Since last year, that rally cry has only grown stronger.
As the campaign enters its second phase, Chester Cheetah and Bad Bunny are teaming up once again to spotlight the Hispanic community by bringing fans two exciting experiences ahead of the school year that take Deja tu Huella to the next level: an exclusive fashion collaboration with adidas and the Deja tu Huella Estudiante Fund, a contest that will give $500,000 in total prizing to students in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
"It's an honor to give back to the Hispanic community that has done so much for me," said Bad Bunny. "Between music and fashion, there are so many ways to leave your mark on culture, and I want to encourage everyone to follow whatever path inspires them. That's what the Deja tu Huella program is all about."
Cheetos x Bad Bunny Collection by adidas
The extremely limited adidas leisurewear collection is a product of two innovative design visions coming together: Bad Bunny's signature style combined with Chester's orange-themed "Cheetos Look."
In true mischievous fashion, Cheetos is giving its biggest fans the chance to get early access to the exclusive items before they're officially available for purchase on August 6. Fans simply need one thing for the opportunity to cop the drop before anyone else: fingertips covered in Cheetos orange-dust, also known as Cheetle®, which all true Cheetos fans now don as a badge of honor.
How to use Cheetle iD to unlock early access to the exclusive collection:
- Starting today, fans in the U.S. and Puerto Rico can head to www.CheetleiD.com to use Cheetle iD, a first-of-its-kind Cheetos x adidas e-commerce experience designed to get the merch into the hands of Cheetos' biggest fans first.
- There, Chester will use Cheetle iD technology to detect whether fans have Cheetle® on their fingertips.
- The first 100 people who pass the Cheetle iD detector will have direct access to purchase items from the collection before the rest of the public.
- Not part of the first 100 fans to use Cheetle iD? No problem. All fans who didn't get early access can sign up at www.CheetleiD.com to enter for a chance to purchase the merch on August 6 via the NTWRK app.
Deja tu Huella Estudiante Fund
As part of the Deja tu Huella campaign and in partnership with Good Bunny Foundation, Cheetos and Bad Bunny are also welcoming submissions starting today for the Deja tu Huella Estudiante Fund, a contest that will identify ten students leaving their mark on their community and reward them with $50,000 each that can go towards their education.
To enter the #DejatuHuella TikTok Hashtag Challenge, fans in the U.S. and Puerto Rico can submit a :60 video that shows how they are leaving their mark on the community, the culture, or the world, and tag @Cheetos, #DejatuHuella, and #Entry to be eligible.
