On Friday, some festivalgoers reportedly received an AirDrop claiming to be from “Donald Glover”aka Childish Gambino, who headlined the festival this year. While AirDrops from strangers don’t always turn out well,the lucky iPhone users who hit “accept” were rewarded.

Glover and Adidas have collaborated on a shoe design, and festival attendees who accepted theAirDrop were apparently able to cop a pair of the sneakers. They then had one hourto pick up the shoes, according to Mashable.

Although admittedly a unique marketing ploy, some Twitter users pointed out that the shoeswhich haven’t been widely released yetwere only available to iPhone users and people who could afford to attend Coachella in thefirst place.

“Give themto me, a poor boy,” wrote @mattymcclelland.

The free shoes came with stipulations, thoughfestivalgoers who accepted the offer had to sign a contract stating that they would wear the shoes, attend the Childish Gambino set, and keep the shoes on for the remainder of the festival, according toEsquire.

The Daily Dot reached out to Adidas for comment but did not receive a response by press time.

The shoe drop was only part Glover’s busy weekend; in addition to headlining the festival, he dropped a new film,, starring Rihanna, on Saturday as well.

Update 11:00am CT, April 15:Adidas spokesperson Andres Paz confirmed the AirDrop strategy to the Daily Dot.

He also stated, “Less than 100 recipients received a pair of adidas Originals sneakers with an invitation to wear them all weekend; especially during the main shows. Come Monday morning, every pair should tell a unique story of each persons experience at a music festival. The invitation had no intention to bind our consumers to a contract.”
