Adidas Updates Its PFP To A Bored Ape, Host Space, And Post Teaser. What We Know So Far:
Updated: Feb 8, 2022
It was anything but a boring day at the Bored Ape Yacht Club yesterday as a major brand cemented its relationship with the club.
Adidas updated its Twitter profile photo to Bored Ape #8774. In the pic, Bored Ape #8774 is wearing an Adidas tracksuit with the companies logo on the apes right side and GMoney, Punk Comic and the BAYC's logo on the apes left.
Bored Ape #8774 is a six trait blue fur ape with a fisherman's hat, gold hoop earring and heart glasses. Adidas purchased Bored Ape #8774 three months ago on September 17th for 46 Eth, according to Opensea data.
Not only did Adidas update its Twitter PFP to a bored ape, the company also held a Twitter Space yesterday titled "Into The Metaverse." BAYC Co-Founder, Gargamel was one of the Twitter Space speakers.
The Bored Ape Gazette sadly missed the space, but will come back with a full breakdown after we find a recording.
Along with updating the companies PFP and hosting a Twitter space to discuss the metaverse, Adidas also tweeted a teaser video featuring their bored ape.
The 30 second clip set, to Louis Armstrongs "What A Wonderful World," features Bored Ape #8774, GMoney NFT and a Punks Comic MetaHero free falling towards a mountainous terrain and an Adidas logo.
All these Adidas X BAYC updates come five days after the BAYC teased a collaboration with the international brand.
“Last time @adidas did a collab with this level of culture/consumers behind it was with @kanyewest, “BAYC member JOxRDAN.Eth tweeted. “If you think jPeGs are all these #NFTs are, you’re being stubborn. Everyone’s still so early, theres still so much upside #WAGMI.”
