Here’s a bumper crop of great new advertising and design work to help you on your way to the end of the working week. First up is a new web app from Wieden + Kennedy Tokyo which encourages users to bend and flex a pair of Nike Free shoes by pulling silly faces in front of your webcam…

In addition to allowing you to play around with the shoe using your face, the app also recognises the colour of the clothes you are wearing and automatically coordinates the shoe to them, using the NIkeID customisation system.
