The King of collaborations - Travis Scott, is back at it again, and this time it involves Sony's highly anticipated next-generation console, the Playstation 5.

While the former was an extension of his record-breaking in-game, Astronomical concert, with regards to the latter, he became only the second celebrity to have an exclusive meal after the legendary Michael Jordan. The Cactus Jack meal went on to become one of McDonald's best-selling items and was also commonly referred to as the Travis Scott Fortnite Burger.

Coincidentally, Travis Scott was also one of the first people to get his hands on the PS5 back in September, which led to intense speculation among envious fans.
Little did they know that it was all leading up to an exclusive PS5 collaboration featuring none other than Travis Scott himself.
In the new black and white commercial, Travis Scott can be spotted booting up the PS5, alongside shots of designers wearing custom Playstation-themed Nike shoes and Cactus Jack tees.
