David Dobrik leaks friend’s drunk texts to assistant on giant billboard

David Dobrik has embarrassed one of his best friends by putting a screenshot of his drunk texts to David’s assistant, Natalie, on a huge billboard in Los Angeles, California.

Dobrik is constantly finding new ways to make his content bigger and better, focusing on the activities of his friends and what they get up to on a daily basis. While this is often funny and fun for everyone, this time, one of them might be feeling a little embarrassed by it all.

The ex-boyfriend of Corinna Kopf, Todd Smith, may have some underlying feelings for Dobrik’s assistant Natalie Mariduena, and they all came out in a series of drunk texts one night. True to Dobrik’s form, he couldn’t let this go unnoticed and decided to share the texts with the entire city.

In the vlog posted on February 3, David films various different bits, skits and pranks with his friends, including having Jason Nash made-up as a very creepy-looking alien to scare the rest of them.

It was the drunk texts, though, that took center stage, as the popular vlogger exposed Todd’s seemingly desperate attempt to get Natalie to spend some time with him – apparently under the pretense that he is in love with her.

By the end of the video, Dobrik had put a screenshot of the texts on a huge Los Angeles billboard on Melrose Avenue, right next to an image of Todd’s face so everybody can be sure it’s him – with Todd and his friends’ reaction the stunt being absolutely priceless.

Reading out the texts, David and his friends laugh at messages asking if he can stay with her, telling her “you break my heart,” and finally announcing that he is “falling out of love” with her.

They’re the typical drunk texts you would expect to read from a love-stricken young man, and his flitting between being in love with Natalie and not being in love with her is something many will be able to relate to after a heavy night out.

However, given the scale of the situation now that it’s up on a massive billboard, Todd might be a bit more cautious about his drunk texts in the future.

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.
