Popular YouTuber Colin Furze went viral yet again after giving viewers a tour of his incredible underground bunker in his March 26 upload.

Colin Furze has built a massive following on YouTube with over 9 million subscribers and is known for showing off his unusual inventions and bizarre world record attempts on his channel.

The popular YouTuber is no stranger to having videos go viral, as was seen with his Overwatch RIP-Tire recreation, and he has returned yet again for a tour of his jaw-dropping underground bunker.

Colin has taken on some insane projects such as his homemade hoverbike.

Five years after initially taking on the project, Colin gave viewers a full tour of his impressive shelter and revealed what use he gets out of it.

The YouTuber explained that the bunker, which was built beneath his back garden, could only be accessed through a hidden entrance in his shed.

Despite taking on many projects and coming up with crazy inventions such as his homemade hoverbike, he shared that his bunker is still up there amongst his favorites, “This is still one of the best things that I have ever made.”

He also revealed that the underground room is used a surprising amount for testing some of his unique inventions such as his flamethrower guitar, “you can do that down here, its a metal box it will not catch fire.”

He continued on, revealing that as the bunker was soundproof with consistent lighting and climate it made for the perfect spot for any of his wild ideas, highlighting different burn marks around the room from past videos.

Colin also shared that it was used to store a lot of his different inventions and would even be used as a band’s practice room from time to time with its soundproof capabilities.

Despite not going into specifics on how much the bunker cost him to build, he left fans a little hint to estimate themselves, “I can’t give you an exact number because it was a sponsored project…but you would buy a pretty decent family saloon with it.”

Although there were some concerns around how the bunker would hold up, he explained that after the 5 years it was still as good as new, “I’m standing here and it does not look any different to the day we made it.”

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.
