Fans might know MOMO from his many FIFA and Fortnite videos on his YouTube channel, where he has over 1.4 million subscribers.

However, MOMO is more than a YouTube gamer. He made his first foray into amateur boxing during the KSI vs Logan Paul fight – and had an interesting take on the sport.

MOMO was set to fight fellow FIFA pro RossiHD in the second match of the evening. With over 2 million subscribers collectively, it wasn’t just a matter of physical prowess – it was a matter of clout, as well.

Rather than taking the match too seriously, MOMO decided to put a different spin on his fight.

At just one minute and fifty seconds into the first round, MOMO broke into Fortnite’s “Hype” emote, as though making an attempt to taunt his opponent.

The ‘Hype’ emote originates from the ‘shoot’ dance, popularized by rapper BlocBoy JB.

He wasn’t done yet: after another standoff with RossiHD, MOMO taunted again with the “Floss,” quickly returning to fighting stance at Rossi’s subsequent approach.

Rossi himself appeared a bit amused – he couldn’t stop a grin from sliding onto his face before rushing back in.

MOMO ended up taking the match against RossiHD in a points decision, solidifying his strength – and subscriber count – in the face of his opponent.

MOMO’s win was followed by five other events on the undercard, during which Jake Paul took the victory over Deji, KSI’s little brother. 

The event has over 5.4 million views as of August 26th, with another 1.2 million on Twitch. MOMO’s dance moves brought the hype to an already hype event, proving that internet memery is ever-present – even in the middle of a livestreamed fight.

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.
