Tyler, The Creator has collaborated with Converse to direct a new advertisement for the brand. In the hilarious clip, the exclusive “Really Cool Converse Club” convenes for a meeting over its strict set of rules, with members including Vince Staples, Henry Rollins, Odd Future member Jasper, former NBA players Bill Walton and Marques Johnson, actor Tim Meadows and more, all representing the many subcultures who rock the sneaker.

“I instantly thought about the many pockets of people that wear Chucks – like skateboarders, soccer moms, kids down the street, guys in the neighborhood I grew up with – and I wanted to put them in one place, that was important to me,” Tyler said about the ad in a press release. “Everyone wears Chucks…including pirates.”

This winter, Johnny Knoxville and his team of stuntpeople will share Jackass: Forever, the fourth installment in the beloved and influential filmed bodily harm series. It may be the final film to feature the original cast, but as Knoxville revealed in a recent GQ profile, Forever will star some new faces. Some of them appear in the first trailer for the film, released today.

Tyler, The Creator, Eric André, Machine Gun Kelly, and Jasper Dolphin all show up in the very funny, all-too-brief trailer. Tyler’s only in it for a second and appears to be getting electrocuted, but you get very clear footage of Jasper parachuting onto his head, Kelly getting hit into a pool by a giant hand, and Eric receiving a punch from an inflatable trap.

While Tyler, Jaspar, and Eric were undoubtedly influenced by the show, they’re also part of its extended family. Jackass co-creator Jeff Tremaine worked with Tyler and Jasper on the Adult Swim television show Loiter Squad and co-produced André’s recent and hilarious film Bad Trip.

The rollout for Tyler, The Creator‘s new album Call Me If You Get Lost has included a selection of great music videos directed by Tyler under his Wolf Haley alias. Today’s clip is for “LEMONHEAD,” the album’s clearest nod to the DJ Drama-hosted Gangsta Grillz mixtapes that inspired it. Keeping with the theme of the clips so far, Tyler appears in a field dressed like a Wes Anderson character, encouraging an elderly gentleman to play the tuba and driving a speedboat around the grassy plains. Watch above, then check out the videos for “WUSYANAME” and “CORSO.”
