One of Twitch’s biggest streamers, Pokelawls, has signed with esports and entertainment giant TSM — and the announcement video of them joining forces is nothing less than throwback gold.

Pokelawls is an extremely popular personality on Twitch, boasting well over 670,000 followers on the live streaming platform due to his hilarious in-game antics and humorous collaborations with other broadcasters.

First beginning his full-time streaming career in 2013, Poke has been on the internet for quite some time and amassed an eyebrow-raising following on other social media platforms like YouTube, where he sports an equally impressive 255,000 subscribers.

That’s not all; despite keeping his personal life largely under wraps, the Canadian influencer also features his mother from time to time during his streams, adding a wholesome flair to his over-the-top gaming content.

Considering other massive entertainers signed to TSM, like streamers Myth and Greekgodx, it makes perfect sense that Poke would be a fitting addition to their ranks — but such a huge signing has to come with an equally bombastic announcement video.

TSM announced their newest content creator in a YouTube video on September 7, which showed the streamer appearing to begin a regular broadcast before being literally sucked into the world of online gaming.

In a throwback sequence, Poke found himself quite literally inside a game of Overwatch as Genji, — another fitting decision, considering the streamer became well-known for streaming Blizzard’s popular FPS.

Not long after his stint in the Overwatch universe during the announcement video, Poke then found himself transported into the Grand Theft Auto world, another game he’s been known for streaming — particularly, within its online roleplaying (GTA RP) community.

At the end of the video, Poke magically dons a TSM jersey, sealing the deal with his new organization, who appears equally as jazzed to have him on board.

While there’s no telling what kind of antics the “Man Among Frogs” will be getting into in the near future, it’s quite clear that fans are excited to see what’s next for the broadcaster after becoming a part of one of gaming entertainment and esports’ biggest groups.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
