1. Pretty funny commercial. I like the way the skate stoppers pop off. And there's an Eldrick cameo!
2. Mark Suciu is definitely my favourite am. So many good lines. So much quality footage.
3. Evan Smith just turned pro. Always dug his skating... he reminds me of a floppy scarecrow!
4. Gino! The king of style.
5. A little Marc Johnson edit. Super smooth.

Holy crap. I can't believe this exists! I remember watching this when I was around five or six years old. The skinny nerdy Keyop guy always talked so weird. lol Then they took it off the air and I never really saw it again.

Here's a shot of Sean Malto, Chris Roberts and Justin Eldridge posing with their drivers. I guess it makes sense that Malto has a Nike. Roberts is rocking an ancient Cobra and Eldridge is also rocking a Cobra. From Biebel's instagram.

I just saw this on ebay and there's definitely something fishy about it. Maybe BBC was getting boards made in the same factory as SMA World Industries at that time and there was a mix up in the screening process. He definitely never rode for BBC. Link to auction here.

Being a statistician by day, I find it interesting that all of Vans' LXVI running shoes have math jargon names. Also, LXVI is the roman numeral for 66, which, of course, is the birth year of Vans. Also, lots of photos are popping up of the New Balance NB# skate shoes, which, IMO, look similarly synthetic to the LXVI line. Image from Ripped Laces' Instagram.
