Twitch stars Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel and Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani finally met each other in real life at TwitchCon 2019, and it was absolutely hilarious.

TwitchCon 2019 is the platform’s annual convention for streamers to celebrate all things Twitch, and is held in San Diego from Sep 27 – Sep 29.

Popular personalities xQc and Myth ended up meeting in person for the very first time during the event, and their welcome to each other had viewers in stitches.

xQc met Myth

The Canadian streamer was livestreaming in one of TwitchCon’s event halls actively trying to find Myth, and he even asked a merch employee where he was at. After finding out the location, the 23-year-old suddenly spotted the Fortnite pro and rushed up to him, pretending to be a fan.

“Hey! Hey! Can I get a selfie?!” he shouted as he approached his friend, holding his phone out to mimic taking a photograph.

“What up, dude?!” Myth said in xQc’s accent. “Oh my God, hey, xQc’s mods are in chat, dude!” The pair then screamed the Overwatch pro’s infamous “dude” line multiple times as a way of welcoming each other: “Dude dude dude dude dude dude dude dude!”

The interaction comes fresh off of the back of the Team Solo Mid player’s ongoing impressions of the Canadian.

“What’s up, man? How’s it going?” the 23-year-old asked his friend, as they told each other how nice it was to finally meet in person. “Am I going to see you soon? After party or something?”

“I hope so!” Myth replied, before revealing that the two had actually met before… Kind of. “But here’s something I figured out that last TwitchCon, you fucking came up to me! But you were wearing a mask so I didn’t know it was you!”

xQc laughed at this, and said admitted he’d seen him even before that. “I saw you before though at another party, months, maybe a year and a half ago. I was outside with some girl. You were looking real prestigious, dude! Could not approach.”

The Fortnite pro then revealed that he had a video collaboration idea for the pair, hinting that fans might get to see the duo stream together some time in the future.

xQc and Myth are currently two of the biggest stars on Twitch, with the Canadian boasting 1.5 million followers and the TSM pro 5.4 million at this time of writing this article.

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.
