Ranking Every NFL Uniform

The National Football League is one of the most celebrated professional sports leagues in the United States of America. The sport is so influential that people will devote their entire weekend to watching their favorite teams play the game. Today, we are going to dive deep into the football fandom in a different direction. Instead of ranking teams based on how good they are, let’s take a look at which teams have the best jersey schemes in the league! Keep on reading to see how we rank every uniform in the NFL!

Washington Redskins

The Washington Redskins have one of the most controversial names in professional athletics. Fortunately, we’re not here to talk about that. Instead, we are going to direct our attention toward their uniforms. The burgundy and gold look is absolutely incredible, but we aren’t in love with the Steve Spurrier-inspired throwback details. If you are a Washington fan, you probably are fine with this getup. Still, we wouldn’t hate it if the Skins changed their look to something more exciting.

Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans actually have a neat color combination, but they don’t know what to do with it. Tennessee tried to rile up some excitement within their fanbase with the introduction of a new uniform, but this look doesn’t quite cut it. While Tennessee made their jerseys more appealing, they took away one of the coolest helmet designs in the league. Oh well, at least they aren’t the Redskins.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

We aren’t going to comment on the state of the Tampa Bay franchise, because we really don’t need to. While we appreciate how hard the Bucs play, their uniforms still feel like they are lagging behind. The weird font with the odd color combination makes it hard to take these uniforms seriously. Of course, the on-field product in recent years hasn’t been of much help. Let’s move on from Winston and change our uniforms while we are at it!

New England Patriots

We are currently bracing ourselves for all of the hate that is coming our way. While we can’t take anything away from the decorated franchise from New England, we can rub their nose in how bad their uniform is. Maybe bad is the wrong word, perhaps outdated would sound better. The last time that New England changed its uniform combination, Drew Bledsoe was under center. With the GOAT at quarterback, couldn’t New England let him look good when he’s hoisting his next Lombardi Trophy?

Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos are still rocking the same uniform that John Elway wore when he was under center for the team. Nowadays, Elway is content to mismanage his Super Bowl-winning team to mediocrity. The Denver Broncos do have one of our favorite home uniforms, however. The white and blue home-look is probably top-5 in the NFL. Unfortunately, their headache-inducing Orange Crush jersey is a pretty big miss by the team’s designers.

Cleveland Browns

The last time that the Cleveland Browns won a Super Bowl, these uniforms probably could have passed muster. However, time has changed and that has left fans stuck with a uniform design that is as outdated as Coach Hue Jackson’s offensive scheme. The plain white or brown jersey with orange lettering could be good, but it is just too stripped down. The helmet designs feel outdated and more than slightly collegiate-level.

Arizona Cardinals

We actually respect the Arizona Cardinals uniform combination to a certain degree. The red and white home uniform looks fantastic and the black and white color combination for away games is equally impressive. Where Arizona falls short will start above the neck. The Cardinals have one of the most generic logos in the entirety of the NFL. You only need to go to a single high school football game to see some team flying the red cardinal on their helmet. Get something creative for a logo and really embrace the hype surrounding Kyler Murray!

New York Jets

While the New York Jets are still a laughingstock in the NFL, at least their uniforms have received a sizable upgrade. Along with the rest of the NFL, New York took a chance to debut a newly redesigned jersey just a few years ago. While the jerseys may look reminiscent of a few college football teams, we still like how sleek and modern they are. Compared to Cleveland, this is a franchise that is willing to at least look good while they struggle on the field.

Los Angeles Rams

The problem with the Los Angeles Rams isn’t necessarily their color scheme, it’s fine, it’s more that they are making too many changes for fans to get comfortable. The old-school Rams uniforms are among our favorites in league history, so it’s not exactly inspiring to see them drift so far away from what made the Rams popular. Hopefully, the Rams can settle into a brand before the city of Los Angeles revolts.

Dallas Cowboys

America’s team has an iconic star logo and… Not much else. The Dallas Cowboys have been one of the biggest sports franchises in the world for as long as we can remember. Unfortunately, that hasn’t translated to better uniforms. While we enjoy the giant star, we’d like to see Dallas take some risks with their away uniform. While we can respect the classic austerity of their home whites, something different would be nice, too.

Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons are another team whose uniform we should appreciate, but we just can’t. The Falcons have a wonderful helmet logo which makes their helmet design among the best in the league. Unfortunately, the Falcons suffer from NCAA-esque uniforms with dark colors, harsh lines, and no defining traits. If Atlanta would switch back to their all black and all white uniforms, we might be able to get on board. Bring back the Dirty Bird era!

Detroit Lions

When it comes to the Motor City, the Detroit Lions rule all. While the Detroit Lions are a long way off from the heyday of Barry Sanders, they are still a solid team in the NFC North. Detroit has a great Honolulu Blue uniform that calls back to yesteryear and their Color Rush uniform is actually kind of nifty looking. Detroit does lose a few points because their home uniforms are a little too bland for our tastes.

Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens have a great color scheme. The purple works great with the black pants for their home jersey. The white and purple combination for their away uniform also looks good. Teams with darker colors always seem to pop when they are on the field. It helps that the Ravens have one of the most intimidating logos in the entire NFL, at least by our estimation. We wouldn’t hate it if the Ravens tried to incorporate more yellow into their darker uniform, though.

Jacksonville Jaguars

We might personally like the Jacksonville Jaguars uniform more than other people, and that’s okay. The Jacksonville Jaguars have relatively simple uniforms with a rare color aesthetic. We like the modern look of the jaguar on the helmet, and we can’t complain about their white and black away jerseys, either.  If Jacksonville wants to take the next step in building their fanbase, they’ll lean into their unique look while bringing out some new color combinations to excite fans.

Houston Texans

The Houston Texans are the youngest franchise in the NFL, having been introduced to the league via an expansion draft in 2002. Unfortunately, the Texans don’t have a long history to buoy fan perception of their uniform. With that being said, the Texans still have one of our favorite home/away uniform combinations in the NFL. Two-tone uniforms that blend bold blue and stark white colors make the Texans pop every time that they are on television. Who could ever turn down a home JJ Watt jersey, anyway?

Miami Dolphins

Despite playing in the flashy city of Miami, the Dolphins have one of the most refined and simple uniforms in the league. We love the simplicity of their home jerseys, pictured far right, thanks to how it makes their memorable logo pop. The away jerseys also feature the most unique primary color scheme in the NFL, so how can we complain about that?

Cincinnati Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals have one of the most notable helmets in the NFL, unfortunately, they aren’t doing much with it. The tiger stripes offer a ton of creative flexibility in terms of schemes and designs, but Cincinnati has been fine with a simple black and orange away jersey with a mild adjustment for their home unis. With a few small adjustments, we think the Bengals could have one of the top uniforms in the NFL. If only they could start winning some games, too.

Carolina Panthers

North Carolina sports teams tend to look good as a rule and the Carolina Panthers are no exception. The Panthers are rocking a mildly updated combination that calls back to their uniforms from the 90s, with a few updates. The Panthers rock a black and baby blue jersey when they are on the road and a delightfully minimalistic white-and-black setup when at home. Carolina is still probably due for a change and it’ll be exciting to see what direction they go in.

Green Bay Packers

Much like Chicago, Green Bay’s uniforms score extra points due to how important the franchise has been to the state of modern football. Vince Lombardi was the head coach of the Green Bay Packers during the 60s and he was the man behind the jersey that you see before you. Green Bay has kept with their uniform from 1959, and they don’t seem intent on changing anytime soon. The iconic throwback look matched with their small market mindset makes a ton of sense. 

New York Giants

The New York Giants may not be a great football team right now, but they have a classic uniform that looks as good today as it did when introduced in the early aughts. The Giants have a very clean scheme with either a blue dominant or a white-dominant uniform. The clean broad stripes around the shoulders paired with the classic logo make them the owners of one of the better uniforms in the league.

Philadelphia Eagles

Should we give the Philadelphia Eagles a Super Bowl bump on their uniform rating? It didn’t help New England so it won’t help here. The Eagles haven’t changed their jerseys much since the 90s and it shows. Still, it’s hard not to love the dark midnight green uniforms that the Eagles have been wearing lately. What do you think? Are these the best bird-related uniforms in the NFL?

Indianapolis Colts

If you couldn’t tell by now that we love throwback uniforms, you know now. Indianapolis is far from the most exciting team in the NFL, but they always bring us memories of football in its infancy — and there is a reason for that! The Colts have been rocking essentially the same uniform for the better part of the past 60 years. Those colors mean something to Indianapolis fans.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have stuck with tradition for the majority of their franchise’s history. The Chiefs have the same uniform as they did when the franchise was first established in 1960. The red and yellow combo looks great whether they are home or away and their logo is simple yet still modern. Kansas City was one of the first teams to use a white facemask, so they got that going for them, too.

Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks probably have the most unique alternative uniforms in the league thanks to their ‘Action Green’ look. Thankfully, Seattle also has modern and minimalist home and away jerseys to counter the exuberance of the Action Green nightmare (pictured far right). Seattle’s uniforms feature broad disconnected stripes below the shoulder pads which complements the basic design throughout the uniform.

Oakland Raiders

If you knew about the Raiders’ history but had never seen them play, you wouldn’t be surprised by their uniforms. The Oakland Raiders have a rowdy fanbase filled to the brim with passionate fans. The simple white and silver jersey looks fantastic and Oakland’s black and silver away uniform is one of our favorites in the NFL. This might all go up in smoke when the team moves to Las Vegas, so now we just have to wait and see what happens.

Los Angeles Chargers

While the Chargers may be new to Los Angeles, their uniforms are not new to our hearts. The Chargers have long had some of the best uniform color combinations in the NFL. Their powder blue jersey broken up by white lines and yellow bolts blends a classic feel with a modern look. Even though the Chargers first rolled out their color combination in the 60s, they’ll keep with it as they head out West for a rebrand.

Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings have finally caught up with the rest of the NFL. Thanks to their uniform overhaul, the Vikings are sporting a modernized look that fits superstars like Dalvin Cook and Stefon Diggs. The Vikings have a classic logo that now gets to pop on Minnesota’s new matte helmets. The Vikings also have great home and away jerseys thanks to their unique purple-dominant color schemes.

Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills may not be the most popular team in America, but they sure look good on Sunday when they take the field. The Bills are utilizing a throwback primary uniform that relies on plain designs, strong colors, and bold stripes. The Bills always look clean, even when they rock their improved ‘throwback’ jerseys.  With newcomer Josh Allen helming the QB position, could the Bills be a darkhorse fan favorite in the coming years?

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears sport an old-school uniform with simple colors and a relatively basic scheme. As one of the most historically important teams in the NFL, their uniforms are perfect, and they embody what it means to be a Bear. We are probably going to catch some heat for this, but we aren’t a fan of the simple ‘C’ logo because it matches with the Cincinnati Reds. Failing that, the Bears uniform combination looks perfect for the Beasts of the Midway.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have put their throwback uniforms in the past and now they are embracing the future. While we’ll never quite forget the bee-themed retro uniforms, their more modern look has a lot to like. The classic Pittsburgh color scheme looks as good as ever and their scaled-back design makes sense for a city built on the backs of steelworkers. Pittsburgh fans like to get things done, no fluff necessary. Simple. Powerful. Iconic.

San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers are as storied a franchise as there is in the NFL. As a result, it kind of makes sense that San Francisco sticks with what made them so famous. We love the golden helmet and the iconic 49ers logo. We love the white and gold jerseys and their fans in the Bay seem to agree. San Francisco is probably due for a new look, but we don’t have to rush to get it. Just seeing the classic uni reminds us of the days of Jerry Rice and Joe Montana.

New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints come in at #1 on our list of the best uniforms in the NFL. We love the fleur-de-lis as a logo and its placement on the gold backdrop on the helmet is just delightful. The Saints also have one of the most effective and aesthetically pleasing away uniforms in the game.  We aren’t in love with the ‘Old Gold’ color rush jersey, but maybe that’s just a personal thing.

Famous Casa Bonita Restaurant Featured on South Park, Saved by the Show’s Creators

If you’re a fan of South Park, the long-running animated series that tackles topical issues, particularly in politics, then you’re likely familiar with its multiple mentions of the famous restaurant Casa Bonita in the series, including a classic episode.

The restaurant could soon move from just a few mentions and features to be a childhood dream turn reality for the show’s creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The ink is nowhere near dry yet, but the duo who’ve loved this restaurant from their childhood hometown forever are bursting with pride.

Casa Bonita was not just any restaurant but a staple in Colorado, the venue for many first dates and a general, hang out for people of all ages since it offered both dining and entertainment.

The restaurant was shutting down, but now the delighted owners of Casa Bonita, the famous Colorado restaurant depicted on South Park, are Trey Matt, and they are bursting with pride at being able to save the iconic structure for themselves and thousands of fans.

It was in July that Parker and Stone announced that they were pursuing ownership of the restaurant. Casa Bonita, a favorite childhood haunt of Parker and Stone, has been mentioned multiple times in South Park and was even the subject of a famous 2003 episode. Casa Bonita got featured as downloadable content in the 2017 video game South Park: The Fractured but Whole.

Gov. Jared Polis interviewed the Colorado natives on Friday, where they revealed the news.

Parker later told the media that the purchase had concluded earlier that day. He added that “buying the restaurant just felt like the right thing to do.” Although the men have provided no financial specifics, Parker described the final amount as “fair.”

Soon after inking a six-year, 935 million dollar contract with ViacomCBS that comprises the streaming of fourteen South Park movies, the two secured a deal to acquire the restaurant.

Summit Family Restaurants, the corporation that operated Casa Bonita, filed for protection via Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Arizona on the sixth of April. According to Parker, the final sale could take several months as the bankruptcy hearing and sale are pending court approval, which could take months.

Meanwhile, Matt Stone and Trey Parker have been cashing in on their CBS multimillion-dollar ‘South Park’ deal. Parker added of the duo’s ambitions to improve the famed Mexican restaurant that, if they had control of the situation, contractors should be working on upgrading the facility right now.

The massive and popular Mexican restaurant, which offers a waterfall and cave with cliff jumpers, an arcade, and many other enticements, first opened to the public in 1974 at 6715 W. Colfax Ave. in Lakewood.

Lakewood Mayor Adam Paul told THR, “This is a truly wonderful development not just for residents of Lakewood, but for the state as a whole.”

Mayor Paul added that “ A lot of activities have been underway behind the scenes, and these transactions may be difficult. Buying the iconic restaurant would not only help save a famous Lakewood landmark, but it would also act as a catalyst for a growing arts district. I want to express my gratitude to Matt and Trey for their dedication to the community!”

The popular animated series South Park is not suitable for youngsters. It appears that its objective in presenting the exploits of Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman is to upset as many people as possible. Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, lawmakers of all stripes, and self-important celebrities have been the show’s highlight. Spoiler alert! Kenny also gets snuffed out in several episodes.

Math Teacher Great At Turfing – Goes Viral

Published

on

Turfing might sound like what someone does to aerate a front lawn or prepare a garden for growing. However, for a teacher living in Alameda and who has spent most of his lifetime in Oakland, CA, turfing is far more personal as an expression of dance. Distinct and unique, Predovic has been “turfing” for decades, blending a mix of boogaloo and improv together into a form that is both eye-catching and artistic all at once.

Turfing is not that old, however, as a dance form. It technically started in the mid-2000s, according to Predovic, when territorial dance-offs were a regular thing in Oakland and eventually much of the East Bay region at the high school level. Literally, entire events would occur in school parking lots and on basketball courts as groups tried to out-dance and out-impress the crowd and each other with what was physically possible in dance form.

At age 63, however, Predovic continues to maintain the dance life with the best locally. He boogaloos and shimmies, bends and twists as the teacher continues to defend his “turf” and has done so personally since 2008. His discovery of the dance form was entirely accidental, however. Instead, Predovic was busy skimming through videos online for Johnny Carson videos of all things when he unintentionally caught a turfing video instead. Predovic was immediately hooked. Watching the video piqued such an interest, the teacher immediately figured out where the next event was going to be locally and went in person to see it for himself. Predovic couldn’t have picked a better show.

The competition he first attended turned out to be a front row seat for Predovic of some of the best turfing possible. It was a dance-off between groups from Oakland versus Los Angeles, and there was an intense showing and display of talent as a result. The competition was the closest thing possible to a national championship, if one could call it that.

Predovic’s personal introduction was trial by fire. He immediately stood out by color, being the only Caucasian present in a sea of ethnicity. One character decided to be insulting to Predovic, challenging his simple presence at the show; the teacher responded with his own moves on the spot. That caught attention, and within minutes Predovic was being put front and center in front of the crowd. It was a hit. And the teacher also became a known commodity and accepted among the regular turfers as well.

Decades later, Predovic still teaches at the high school level, dispensing the classic principles of math to students of all stripes. While his daytime career at Mt. Diablo High School might seem sedate, Predovic still makes a regular showing with an official dance crew, Turf Inc. Led by one of Predovic’s former math students, Turf Inc. the group regularly attends competitions, Predovic continues to be a classic draw and known name.

Even in the social media digital age, Predovic’s dancing still commands a draw. His TikTok video has a cool 61,000 unique viewers, and older tools like Instagram still draw an easy 5,000 views as well. In his 60s, the math teacher isn’t as nimble as he was years earlier, but the dancing and turfing continues to keep Predovic fit and limber for every new event. Most importantly, though, he feels a direct connection with the youth at the turfing events, and they want him there too. That’s priceless for Predovic, and is rare for older people his age in general. Hoping to keep dancing into his 80s, Predovic knows time is catching up with him, but he can always try.

Random Streamer With Zero Viewers RAIDED By Crypto Fans, Raises $85k!

Twitch is one of the largest video streaming platforms on the planet right now. An innovator and one of the leaders in the ‘let’s play’ revolution, Twitch generates more than 71 million hours of content every single day. Buoyed by top-of-the-line streamers like XQCOW and TOMMYINNIT, Twitch has become a proverbial playground for some of the most popular young entertainers of the day and age. However, that isn’t where our story is heading today.

Instead, we are talking about one of the unsung heroes of Twitch, the random streamer who streams despite a lack of attention. Today, we are going to be focusing on a live musician named Cameron Ferguson and the massive crypto movement that would appear in his streaming room.

Crypto, Raiding, and Zero Viewers.

While the top-ranked streamers on Twitch can exceed tens of thousands of viewers at a time, the majority of streamers don’t have that kind of success. Instead, the vast amount of streamers will end up with just a handful of viewers throughout their session. Still, that didn’t matter to a musician named Cameron Ferguson and the live music that he wanted to share with the world.

While playing live music to an empty room one evening, Cameron was startled to see that his session had been flooded with hundreds of people watching him play. It quickly became apparent to the viewers that Cameron was more than just another streamer, he was a talented musician who was appreciative of the sudden influx of attention.

Still new to Twitch, Cameron tried not to let his nerves get to him as he played to a suddenly very crowded room. A few donations would come in as viewers saw how talented Cameron was and in the blink of an eye, the musician had raised thousands! Not bad for a night of music, right? If that was where this story ended, that’d be great — but it isn’t.

As it turns out, Cameron had been raided by a team of crypto enthusiasts who had been listening to the cryptocurrency internet show, Up Only. The program is run by @CyrptoCobain and @Ledgerstatus and these two figures were the reason for Cameron’s suddenly packed house. The radio co-hosts had been browsing Twitch for crypto news when they stumbled upon Cameron’s stream.

After raiding the stream, the crypto team decided to do something even nicer for Cameron, they would decide to help him open a crypto wallet. Cobie and Ledger would walk Cameron through establishing a wallet on Blockfolio before helping the man add his Ethereum address to his Twitch bio. Cobie and the rest of the gang would donate a couple of thousand dollars through the wallet almost immediately.

Cameron could easily have been left behind by the group had he not blown them away with his music. Given an opportunity and a reason to excel, Cameron took advantage of his chance. The musician would keep the stream going for hours, before inviting his wife onto the stream to share the news. While she didn’t believe him at first, that would change when a billionaire by the name of SBF donated $10,000 worth of Dogecoin to the musician.

The funniest thing about this entire story is that Cameron almost quit the stream when the crypto raid arrived. His reasoning? He thought he was getting spammed. By the end of the session, Cameron had streamed for five hours, earning more than $85,000 along the way.

When we say that the internet can change lives, we really mean it. The internet can change lives!

Macaulay Culkin And Brenda Song Welcome Baby Boy Named After Culkin’s Sister

Published

Regardless of the ups and downs faced by former child star Macaulay Culkin over the years, his name still manages to trigger beautiful memories for people both old and young.

Many people fail to see him beyond his role in the Home Alone movies(afterall he was absolutely adorable) but now hearing that he is not only in a relationship but also welcoming a child has set the internet in a flurry.

Additionally it is with another former child star, Brenda Song, known for her role as a spoiled rich kid in the TV show “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.”

As per a statement to TODAY, the couple welcomed the boy on April 5, who weighed six pounds and 14 ounces, in a Los Angeles hospital. It’s their firstborn and the couple is clearly elated.

Dakota Song Culkin is the name they’ve chosen for their bundle of joy. If you’re wondering who Dakota is, well, she was Culkin’s sister who passed away thirteen years ago in 2008. According to the announcement, the new three-person family is happy and healthy.

The couple said, “We’re overjoyed.”

The “Home Alone” star, hit a new milestone in 2020 when he reached age forty and made everybody feel elderly, has previously expressed his intention to create a child, his girlfriend who is a former Disney celebrity.

He informed Esquire last year, “We prepare a lot.” “We’re working it out and figuring out how to make the timing work. Hardly anything sparks you on with your lady coming into the bedroom and saying, ‘Honey, I’m ovulating.’

Despite his meteoric rise to fame as a teen, Culkin is now at ease in his relationship with Song.

“People think I’m crazy, a kook, or mentally ill. Strange. He told the paper, “Cracked.” “But I’ve never really put myself forward until the most recent year or two. But that’s something I can appreciate. It’s also like, “Well, everybody, stop being so surprised that I’m reasonably well-adjusted.”

“Look at me,” he continued, “I’ve got money, I’ve got fame, I’ve got a beautiful girlfriend, a beautiful home, and beautiful animals.” “It may have taken me a long while to get here, and I had to have that talk with myself and ask myself, “Honestly, Mack?” It isn’t all evil. I have nothing I want and much less that I want. “I’m fine, man.”

Meanwhile, Song, who is 33, has been waxing poetic about her relationship with Culkin.

In 2020, she informed Esquire that, “Individuals are unaware how incredibly kind, loyal, nice, and smart he is.” “Truly, what distinguishes Mack is that he is unapologetically himself.

“Mack is aware of who he is and is perfectly content with it. And that, to me, is a very enticing feature. He’s put in a lot of effort to become the guy he is.”

Now what everyone is wondering is whether wedding bells will be ringing soon and if they intend to make the family any bigger.

In the meantime, everyone is basking in happiness for the cute couple and wishing them and Dakota all the best.

‘Gorilla Glue’ Viral Phenom Gives Back to Charity After Fundraising Success!

Liz L

Published

By

We hesitate to think about what it might be like to be judged by the internet for our worst moments in life. We shudder when thinking back to our time in childhood, long before social media and viral Tweets were a thing. Tessica Brown unfortunately is not going to have the same benefit. Brown went viral recently after uploading a video of herself to the social media app TikTok.

In the video, the Gorilla Glue Girl (@im_d_ollady) used a bottle of Gorilla Glue Adhesive Spray after running out of her own hair freezing spray, a product named Got2b Glued Blasting Freeze Spray. For people not into hair care, freezing sprays are used to mold and hold hair into a specific place, oftentimes used as an alternative to pivot from the slicked-back ponytail. The video begins with Tessica Brown, a teacher from Louisiana, rubbing her hand over her hair while saying, “It don’t move. I’ve washed my hair 15 times, and it don’t move.”

Tessica was, of course, talking about her failed experiment using Gorilla Glue as a last-minute adhesive spray. Tessica would go on to explain that she had continually washed and re-washed her hair in an attempt to fix the issue. The glue stuck and her hair remained stuck with it. The story would quickly go viral, garnering reactions from people in every nook and cranny of the world. Along with the attention came serious fundraising efforts for the poor woman, ending up with thousands in her GoFundMe Account. The attention would also bring with it potential solutions for her hair problem. It wouldn’t take long for Tessica to connect with an LA-based surgeon by the name of Dr. Michael Obeng.

Dr. Obeng would offer to fix Tessica’s hair for free and a week later the procedure would become a success. Before the culmination of the story, Tessica had gained substantial donations through her GoFundMe account. Originally the account had been established to just raise $1,500 to pay for operating expenses on the gorilla glue. After more than $20k had been donated to the account, Tessica knew that she had to do something special with the money.

After the procedure was successfully performed, Tessica would end up with most of her hair still in place, a stark departure from her prior fears. In order to thank Dr. Obeng for his work, after the physician had offered to perform for free, Tessica would decide to donate the vast majority of her fundraiser money toward a foundation close to Dr. Obeng’s heart, the Restore Foundation. The vast majority of the funds will be donated to the foundation while Tessica keeps just enough to pay for her travel and emergency room visits.

The Restore Foundation is a non-profit backed by Dr. Obeng himself. The goal of Restore Worldwide, as it is also called, is to give back to disadvantaged folks around the world who are in need of aesthetic and plastic surgery. The goal is to provide life-saving and life-changing surgeries for people who would otherwise never have the opportunity to receive them. The Restore Foundation has already changed and saved hundreds of lives throughout Ghana and other disadvantaged countries in Africa.

At the time of this writing, Tessica’s video on TikTok hard garnered north of 16 million views alone. Since her TikTok fame came to fruition, the story has been picked up and passed around by every other major social media platform, creating millions of additional views in the process. We wonder now, was the gorilla glue pain worth the viral fame?
