TikTok stars Brent & Lexi Rivera mindblown by custom ZHC iPad Pro mural

Zachary ‘ZHC’ Hsieh has become known for his crazy artistic designs on expensive products, gifting his friends cars, clothes and gadgets with their own unique twists. This time, he’s created something incredible for Brent Rivera.

We’ve seen Addison Rae be stunned by a custom Louis Vuitton bag from the artistic YouTuber and MrBeast blown away by a uniquely-customized iPhone 11.

Ever-generous, though, ZHC turned his attention to massive TikTok and YouTube star Brent Rivera, as well as his friends, with an insane iPad Pro mural.

ZHC has made custom designs for some of the biggest names on the internet.

You might be wondering what exactly an iPad Pro mural entails, but we can guarantee it’s even more impressive than what you think it might be.

Rather than simply creating a unique design for Rivera and each of his group of friends, ZHC made them all a custom iPad Pro, but designed them so that they could link up and create one long, impressive painting.

They kick off the design by drawing a ribbon interlinking all five iPads, forming the foundation of each design.

Then, they add some personal touches, such as the seemingly ever-present donut drips, bright colors and space themes that ZHC loves to draw, as well as sneaking the stars’ faces onto animal bodies, such as a lizard or Kermit the Frog.

As you can see, Brent and his crew – sister Lexi, Ben Azelart, Jeremy Hutchins and Lexi Hensler – couldn’t believe what they were seeing when Zach handed them the gifts.

Their minds were blown even further when the iPads were pushed together to reveal the mural, and you can see why – the finished product really was incredible.

ZHC always manages to keep his gifts looking fresh and new, and to say we’re jealous of all the lucky stars who get gifted his designs is a massive understatement.

Travis Scott and PlayStation tease new PS5 “Cactus Jack” Nike Dunks

Travis Scott has revealed a new “TS5” teaser with PlayStation, which features a brief glimpse showcasing what appears to be a PS5 and Cactus Jack collaboration on a pair of Nike Dunk lows.

The 2020 king of collaborations, Scott, continues to up the ante. This time, he and Sony partnered to put together a teaser video, which is an obvious ode to the infamous Maxell “Blown Away Guy” advertisements from 1980.

In the social media commercial, Sony’s PlayStation headquarters are shown, followed by a few different employees who represent different aspects of the new console’s development (platform, design, and engineering). Afterward, Scott sits down, powers on a PS5, and is literally blown away.

Each employee is rocking some of Scott’s Cactus Jack merchandise, including one wearing a pair of his iconic Jordan 1 lows and one wearing a similar design, but on a pair of Nike Dunk lows. In the corner, a PS logo can be noticed by the sneaker’s heel.

It’s a short and sweet video, starting with some foreshadowing and teasing of the collaboration before finishing with a direct promotion for the PS5. An employee is seen wearing the PS5 Cactus Jack Dunks and then later, Scott himself appears to be wearing them as he kicks back and turns on the console.

In what might be obvious to those who have a keen eye for historic marketing content, the ending Scott portion of the clip is nearly a direct recreation of Maxell’s original ads from a couple decades ago. Those ads featured someone turning on one of the brand’s cassette tapes and experiencing the media quite physically. 

Similarly, Scott’s clothing, hair, and surrounding furniture are simultaneously hit with an unrelenting gust as soon as he powers on the PS5.

With the announcement from Sony that Scott has been enlisted as a “strategic creative partner,” it’s unclear exactly what the extent of this collaboration could mean. At the very least, fans can expect the two to work together on more projects.

One such project could be a pair of Cactus Jack sneakers, which would mean a three-way collab between Nike, Sony, and Scott’s own personal brand.

Scott’s sneaker collaborations typically sell out very quickly and then dominate the resale market, where resellers net huge profits just by lucking out and being among the first to invest in his reworked designs.

This sneaker follows the original Jordan 1 design, with an inverted swoosh logo on the outside, but in a contrasting colorway. Similarly, it seems to feature a PS5 logo at the heel (as other Nike and PlayStation collaborations have). It’s unknown whether these will be made available to the public or if they will be a “friends and family” symbolic release.
