COOL SH*T

Volume 181

FUN IN THE SUN WITH GORILLAZ

Let’s roll into this week’s COOL SH*T with the new Gorillaz single and video. It will give you proper summer vibes, dreaming about palms trees and cocktails on the beach. Along with the track, the band have detailed their new record The Now Now, which arrives June 29. They also confirmed that their Demon Dayz Festival will return for a second year on October 20 in Los Angeles. Lucky California!

LOOOOOONG FURBY

Not sure how to comment on this one. As if the Furby, a creepy Gremlin-on-acid looking animatronic toy by Tiger, wasn’t already haunting our dreams since 1998, someone has now decided to make it even scarier by making it over 3ft long. ‘LongFurby’ is a creation of a 23-year old photography student, inspired by body distorting memes and the desire to enlarge her existing collection of 21 Furbies. Why???

NEW FALLOUT IS COMING

For all you avid gamers out there, Bethesda Game Studios announced a new Fallout game with a teaser that lead fans to believe that this is a traditional entry in the series, but it’s actually not the case. The new ‘Fallout 76’ is, in fact, an online survival RPG that’s heavily inspired by games like DayZ, Rust and it’s an experimental new entry in the long-running post-apocalyptic series. Excited yet?

PEEK-A-BOO

In the residential area of Kyushu, Japan, three Shiba Inus keep a vigilant watch over passers-by, though they’re friendlier than the typical guard dog. Thanks to their charms, the three pups—now dubbed the ‘Three Shibas of Shimabara’—have turned the otherwise mundane district into an accidental tourist attraction by popping their heads in small holes built in the area’s walls. Adorable!

BRICK PARODY OF THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL

If you missed the UEFA Champions League Final last Saturday, you can catch all the highlights right here, thanks to ‘My Funny Games Builder’. Why watch Match of the Day, when you have Ronaldo, Mane or Bale as Lego characters? Hats down to the creator of this stop-motion, as it went live on game day. Fast like Mohamed Salah!

What do you want to do when you grow up?

We asked 1,000 members of our SELFHOOD network what they value and want to achieve by the time they’re 30yrs, compared to what was important to their parents. Today, we believe U30s have a much more diverse set of goals, from understanding your own sexuality to finding a job you love, to owning a pet.
