A couple months ago, while scrolling through the depressing wasteland that is Instagram, we came across a kid with a massive Monster Energy® logo tatted right in the middle of his chest. We had no idea if the 1×1 ft. toxic-green “M” tattoo was part of some new viral challenge, or if this kid was genuinely a fan of the heinous logo. He even went to Nyjah’s birthday party (on the condition that he remain shirtless the whole night), and supposedly made a deal with some Monster® reps there.
Eventually we said fuck it and when we were out in LA last week, we met up to learn more. What we found was a true Monster® monster.
Monster Kid® is 110% committed to the green stuff. He fell in love with Monster® at first sip, and he’s since dedicated his life to being the first kid to go pro exclusively for Monster®.
He doesn’t have a job, he doesn’t skate street, and he doesn’t care if he has a heart attack before he turns 25. Monster® or die, pretty much.
