TOKYO — Tenga has announced its collaboration with skate-influenced lifestyle brand RIPNDIP for a limited edition Cup.
“For any of you who've ever been on the internet before, you've undoubtedly been flipped off by Lord Nermal, RIPNDIP's iconic white cat,” Tenga says on its website.
Ryan O’Connor, a former skater, created the “mischievous and loveable” character and the RIPNDIP brand, which has attracted celebrity fans like Tyler, the Creator.
To commemorate the occasion, Tenga published a Q&A with O’Connor about the collab.
“I think it’s going to be an amazing product, and I want to introduce it to all our fans,” O’Connor said. “I think our fans, everyone that loves RIPNDIP, is really going to enjoy this one. I think that a lot of them don’t know about it yet, so I feel like they’re really going to enjoy it — thoroughly.”
In the interview, O’Connor says he thinks Tenga and RIPNDIP make a good match “because we both make products that people enjoy using. I feel like a lot of people get joy out of using TENGA, and a lot of people find the humor in RIPNDIP enjoyable. It’s a good harmony of two products.”
