The Wu-Tang Clanturned heads in recent weeks after linking up with the White Castle fast food burger chain to promote the vegan Impossible Burger slider. Now, the Shaolin Swordsmen are connecting with the Impossible Foods and White Castle for a four-part series.
With the straight the point title, “Wu-Tang in Space Eating Impossible Sliders,” the first of the episodes debuts today (Oct. 3) via Impossible Foods’ YouTube channel featuring The RZA as the futuristic computer RZA 9000, GZA, and Ghostface Killah as they travel the cosmos in their Wu-F-O space ship answering questions from fans about, well, almost anything they want.
The connection makes sense as RZA has promoted a plant-based lifestyle for years, and for what it’s worth, the Impossible Slider has been getting rave reviews from even the heartiest of meat eaters.
“As America’s home of the original slider, we appreciate the ‘out of this world’ perspective the Impossible Foods team has brought to our partnership,” said Kim Bartley, Chief Marketing Oﬃcer at White Castle in a press statement.
Today’s episode features the trio looking upon Earth from space and fielding questions, even inviting a first-grader to get some of that fly Wu Wisdom aboard the Wu-F-O.
Check out the cheeky, over-the-top “Wu-Tang in Space Eating Impossible Sliders” first episode, which was directed by veteran film director Sam Spiegel, below.
Will Smith has become far more than a rapper and actor in his middle-age years, serving as one of the most inspirational figures online today by way of his massive social media following. Using the power of his influence for positive reasons once more, Smith answered a challenge to do a bungee jump out of a helicopter over the Grand Canyon.
For just over nine gripping minutes, Smith is seen preparing for the jump with his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, and children Tre, Jaden, and Willow watching from afar with longtime friend and former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air co-star Alfonso Ribero narrating the moment. Smith answered a challenge from Yes Theory, a YouTube channel that features people doing acts outside of their comfort zones in order to get them to face their fears.
Smith agreed to Yes Theory’s challenge but only as part of a charity drive. Via Omaze, fans donated $10 for an entry into a contest to see yesterday’s (Sept. 25) in person, with the monies going to Global Citizen’s education campaigns to aid students in learning around the globe.
The jump was successful, and the look on Smith’s face proved that the stunt was beyond exhilarating. In one tense moment, Ribero upped the suspense as Smith was getting unhitched from the bungee device with his family looking on.
