Inside Look: Travis Scott X Reese’s Puffs Popup in Paris

In one of the most unlikely collaborations, rapper Travis Scott and Reese’s Puffs cereal created a lot of hype this week, dropping an exclusive cereal box, bowl and spoon that all sold out in 30 seconds this past Tuesday.

While the items were sold online, Travis also officially debuted the General Mills cereal with a pop-up in Paris during Fashion Week.

With shelves full of cereal boxes, the pop-up also had Travis Scott X Reese’s Puffs merch on deck and cereal-inspired art installations.


As you would imagine, the cereal boxes are already making rounds on eBay and other after market sale apps for as low as $32. Yet with an average asking price of $120 in the after market, it’s right up there as  hypebeast collector status. Some are even putting together bundles that include the cereal, bowl and spoon, and in some instances Travis Scott streetwear items.


This isn’t Reese’s first hip hop Rodeo, however, as you probably remember past commercials with the “Reese’s Puffs Rap,” or the “Perfect Combo” rap commercial.

Hopefully all this means is that we’ll see a remake of these Reese’s Puffs commercials with Scott’s classic ambient, auto-tuned crooning.

Netflix’s Cease-And-Desist Letter To ‘Stranger Things’ Bar Is The Best Thing We’ve Read All Week

The new season of Stranger Things is a little more than a month away and we’re stoked. Netflix’s hit series has gained an overwhelming amount of traction since it premiered in 2016. Now with the much-anticipated second season debuting a few days before Halloween, an unauthorized Stranger Things pop-up bar is in for a bit of a scare.

According to DNAinfo, a Chicago Bar was transformed a while back into the Upside Down – the spooky, scary parallel dimension from the show. The pop-up opened on Aug. 18 and is set to run through Oct. 1.

Unfortunately, any plans for them to go beyond the six-week period were squashed by Netflix. The two gentlemen behind the popular pop-up received this letter from the entertainment company’s legal team.

Netflix Letter 'Stranger Things' Pop-Up Bar by Mina Bloom on Scribd

Arguably one of the funniest cease-and-desist letters we’ve seen in our years. It’s nice to see that Netflix has a bit of humor regarding the pop-up. If you happen to be in the Chicago area and haven’t had a chance to visit the Upside Down, be sure to do so before Oct. 1.
