Blondey McCoy has been staying busy over the course of London’s multiple coronavirus lockdowns, prepping drops from THAMES MMXX, working on more see-through adidas Superstar collaborations, premiering an “Unlimited Exercise” skate part and even releasing a series of six monologue-style IGTV videos tackling a wide variety of impactful topics like New Year’s resolutions, the perils of social media, “cloutbusting” and dealing with addiction.
After a widely positive response to the clips, McCoy has started a YouTube channel under the THAMES MMXX umbrella, bringing all six of his conversational “walk and talk” videos and the aforementioned “Unlimited Exercise” part over from Instagram. In a post announcing the new channel, McCoy stated “It seemed only right for these videos to be shared on a platform other than Instagram, given that my criticism of it — and of our dependency upon it — is a recurring theme throughout them. As I promised to in the last installment, I am currently exploring different mediums (including YouTube) through which I can share the type of content that takes longer than 10 seconds to consume, and, I must say, I am genuinely excited about it.” In an email to HYPEBEAST, McCoy also mentioned ” I intend to keep making these videos, and hope they are of some help to people in this difficult time.”
