If you ask me what I'm wearing on my feet right now, I would tell you, "Why, I'm wearing my 'a-DEE-das' Superstars of course and thank you for asking." Nothing strange there, I think you agree, except if I were in Germany I would have just lost the entire country's respect.

Because for my entire 29-year existence, I have been pronouncing Adidas wrongand you know what, I bet you have as well.

The people at The Today Show have finally exposed us and revealed that the actual way to pronounce our favorite three-stripe brand is "AH-dee-dah." Say it with me now, AHH-Dee-Dah, AHH-Dee-Dah, AHH-Dee-Dah.

Now book that plane ticket to Berlin shame-free.
