Saw this man in a video, rings a bell, and it
looks like a Gibson guitar, any ID?

Thanks, that looks like a match, especially the metaworks behind the pickups. I think I want one, but I've never played that type of guitar, just solids.
Is the player famous? Maybe a new Hendrix or BB?

or maybe a ES-355. The ES-335 got famous with Chuck Berry etc.

Tell us what video you grabbed the pic from. Then perhaps we can figure out who he is. Reverse google image search doesn't come up with any bearded men, only hats.

355s are flashier, more inlays, so my money's on the 335. It's a brave man who'd use a whammy on a hollow-body.

They're not hollow. They have center blocks. And a Gibby Es-335 is still too rich for my blood, even if I got a perfect specimen. I'd spend that on an acoustic, but not an electric.
