Check out the sublime new commercial for Nike SB and Paul Rodriguez.
I know I’m a few months late to this, but wow. This is probably the scariest thing I’ve ever seen. The Adam Kimmel suits look great though. Yeesh.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Spike Jonze has gone and given his skate company — not Ain’t It Cool or any of those other fanboy losers — the first look at the beasts from his highly, highly, highly anticipated adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s “Where The Wild Things Are.”
Girl Skateboards will be releasing the decks in a limited-edition run along with t-shirts. Click through the catalogue for a brief interview with Jonze too.
Only after viewing the video below will you be adequately prepared to see pictures of these shoes:
We’re warning you. Seriously, watch the video first, otherwise you won’t be able to appreciate the powers of these kicks.
Okay, I know that boards are essentially made to be destroyed, but if you’re lucky enough to own one of these badass Manik decks do me a favor and reconsider taking out on the street. I mean, wouldn’t you rather have Slick Rick’s face staring at you from your wall than getting funny-footed-reversy-madonna’ed [um, I don’t think this is an official term, Ed.] into the curb? Featuring images from icons such as Gwar, Method Man, Bad Brains and Ghostface among others, these decks are too damn pretty to run the streets. I guess that may be a bit like asking a kid to keep their G.I. Joe’s in the original packaging, but still it’s worth considering.

We’re all about the short films lately. Actually, let me rephrase that. We’re not so much about short films as much as I can’t in good conscience ignore any project that involves a skateboarding Chewbacca. As part of Adidas’ Celebrate Originality campaign, renaissance man Michael Sieben stars in this heartwarming tale of a boy (Sieben) who’s imagination brings a colorful cast of characters to life and carries him away on a magical, Lord-of-the-rings-like journey through San Francisco. Also, sneakers are involved.
