Still having issues with the latest Game of Thrones episode? We are too.

Jordan Brand also shared some golf specific sneakers and cleats and a handful of brands dropped lookbooks.

Drake and Cargojet Partner for "AIR DRAKE"

Drake took to his Instagram account to unveil an "AIR DRAKE" jumbo jet in partnership with Cargojet over the weekend. In the video the Canadian artist simply says, "no rental, no timeshare" as it pans over the OVO Owl on the side of the entrance and 6 god prayer hands motif on the rear wing. Yahoo Finance quoted Drake saying, "supporting home grown businesses has always been a top priority of mine, so when an opportunity came up to get involved with a great Canadian company I was honored to do so."

Bandai Introduces Tamagotchi On

First launched in 1996, the egg-shaped Tamagotchi device was a toy that grabbed a generation of kids. Now, Bandai is bringing the device back as Tamagotchi On and with a color screen instead of a black and white one. The three buttons remain the same to navigate through hatching it, feeding your pet, picking up after your pet and showing it affection until it becomes an adult. This new version will also allow you to connect to another and go on dates, hangout and mate to raise families. Each one will retail for $59.99. More information on bandai.com.
