-Boost Mobile and Highdive are “getting after it” with musician Toosii.

The campaign also features spots with artist and muralist JC Rivera and professional skateboarder Samarria Brevard. The campaign pays homage to Boost Mobile’s early 2000s “Where You At?” ad campaign, which featured up-and-coming famous artists of the time, but interprets it through the lens of today’s creator culture.
