Reebok Showcases The Montana Cans With Felipe Santone And Sany

This month Reebok Classic launches the next iteration of its Always Classic Spring/Summer 2018 campaign by inviting renowned graffiti creatives Sany and Felipe Pantone to showcase what it means to be a classic with the Montana Cans Club C, Classic Leather and Workout sneakers.

A brand that fiercely believes in those who challenge expectations and push their creative boundaries, Reebok’s new Always Classic campaign brings together the most disruptive and authentic style pioneers of this generation and unites them with Reebok Classic’s iconic Franchise Four collective; the Freestyle Hi, Classic Leather, Club C and Workout Plus. Celebrating this season’s Club C silhouette is Sany, the striking female leader in the male-dominated graffiti scene and Felipe Pantone, known for his contemporary kinetic and graffiti art.

Born in ‘85, the Club C was made to perform on the court but changed the game to serve up style for the streets. This iconic silhouette has transcended cultural and style boundaries to become an essential streetwear staple and its striking look and attitude has always been its most true when it’s worn by people whose personal style makes a true mark on the world. Refusing to let go of the spray can and determined to bring girl power to the predominantly male graffiti scene, Sany has boldly tagged her place in the street art subculture and much like the Club C, she continues to serve up an expected statement on the streets. Felipe Pantone, with his boldly-colored geometric art installations, holds court at the intersection of street art and modern art and is a true representation of the Club C’s bold aesthetic.

Reebok worked with Montana Cans, the renowned German manufacturer of one of the world’s best spray paints, to bring a fresh look to the Club C as well as the Classic Leather and Workout Plus.  These classic silhouettes serve as the perfect canvases to the anonymity-prizing culture of graffiti art.  Each colorway is inspired by Montana Cans colors, with intricate details such as the color number that is featured on each can replicated on the insole of each shoe.

Guinness Celebrating 200 Years Of St. Patrick’s Day In America

If you are looking to celebrate with Guinness this year on St. Patrick’s Day know that it is the 200th anniversary of Guinness sharing the holiday with America. It is the latest reminder of the two-century connection between a legendary brewery and its good friends across the Atlantic. Once again, in the days and weeks leading up to March 17, it’s time for us all to embrace the stories we tell,  the memories we make and the bonds we build over a pint of Guinness.

The Guinness brand is encouraging all Americans, 21 years and older, to make a simple pledge (assuming they’ve already promised to drink responsibly, of course): gather with friends, new or old, toast to the many things we all have in common…and give a ‘Stache. Indeed, this St. Patrick’s Day, the Guinness ‘Stache – that unmistakable hint of foam left behind on the upper lip after the first sip of stout – is back as a symbol of the goodness and the Irish-ness that lives within all of us.

From now through March 31, 2018, when adult beer lovers share photos of their ‘Staches – self-grown and groomed, drawn-on, or Guinness-enhanced – on social media (tagging @GuinnessUS and using #StacheForCharity), Guinness will donate $1 (up to $100,000) to the Guinness Gives Back Fund*, which supports nonprofits that contribute to the common good in our communities, including Team Rubicon, a veteran-led disaster response organization.

The symbol of the ‘Stache will appear alongside Guinness brand activity at bars and restaurants and on social media throughout the St. Patrick’s Day season, including in some digital content that pays homage to 200 years of mustaches in America. To spread the word about the bonds a ‘Stache can build, the brand is releasing additional digital content that will help us all reflect on the friendships we cherish – and some very recognizable Guinness fans will also get involved in spreading the word.

In addition, it’s time for the latest limited-edition Guinness Draught cans, which will hit shelves in time for St. Patrick’s Day. The ongoing series celebrates the famed Guinness ad campaigns of the 1930s and ‘50s. While it doesn’t have a mustache, the kinkajou – which we thought was a sloth at first – will be featured on this version.

To keep an eye on everything the Guinness brand is doing and to get in on the ‘Stache action, follow @GuinnessUS on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Whether you’re making a new friend or meeting an old one, having a Guinness Draught, or ordering up any other Guinness beer this St. Patrick’s Day, please respect the beer and drink responsibly.

Lexus Gives Black Panther A Car Fit For A King

If you haven’t seen Black Panther in theaters yet I have ask you one question? Why not? I saw it last week and it was an amazing film on many levels. In the film, which takes place after the events of Marvel Studios’ Captain America: Civil War, the character T’Challa (Black Panther) returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as king.

T’Challa’s sister sets him up with some unbelievable tech. One item from the ridiculous tech is the the Lexus LC 500. In the clip below you get to see where movie magic and real life come together.

Lexus said: “The LC’s aggressive styling, high performance and agile handling are a perfect fit for the Black Panther’s quick, cat-like reflexes and superhuman feats. We’re excited to see the duo in action.”

Watch “The Road Ahead,” a thrilling 30-second spot resulting from Marvel Studios’ collaboration with Lexus on its highly-anticipated film, Black Panther, in which the 2018 Lexus LC 500 is featured alongside the title character in an exciting chase sequence.
