Ice Spice is being immortalized as a Chia Pet and we aren’t mad at the collab.
According to COMPLEX The “Munch” rapper’s own Chia Pet, in collaboration with Chicago-based lifestyle brand Living Product, is now available for purchase.
In the Ice version of the terra cotta planter, the chia sprouts from Ice’s hair creating a green version of her signature fro.
The figurine is completed with her iced-out portrait chain and a pink hoodie.
“Like my lyrics say, ‘I’m breakin’ records and I’m breakin’ news,’” the 23-year-old said in a statement. “I’m not sure who stole whose look, but I’m into it and am very excited about this fun partnership. Chia Pet is an iconic brand with a dope jingle—so we have that in common.”
According to a press release, the brand’s goal was to rethink traditional items in a “playful and disruptive” manner.
JB Brode, the Owner/Founder of Living Product, spoke to Complex about the importance of “artists thinking outside the box with their merchandise” and how the Ice Spice Chia Pet came to be.
“My manager Tara is such a beast.
She connected us to help design merch for Ice Spice,” Bode said.
“Ideating around that led us to this lightbulb moment like, ‘damn, an Ice Spice Chia Pet would be crazy.’
It started as just an idea for a graphic but we knew that the idea deserved its own moment.
We pitched it to Spice’s team who graciously let us pursue the official collaboration with Chia, and many months and negotiations later here we are.
It’s been a very educational process for us and we are so happy to see it come to life.
The commercial really brought it full circle for us.
Our guys at Pio Mio Studios executed our vision perfectly and it tied everything together beautifully.”
