21 Jump Street Star Jonah Hill Brings you His Seven All-Time Favourite Skateboard Videos
'I’m sorry the Coen Brothers don’t direct the skate videos I watch, Evan'
Skateboarding's cool, right. It just is. It's kind of dirty, and grubby, and sometimes high, but it's also counter-culture, and yet accepting of all cultures, and that's just...
Well, whatever it is, it's something that celebrities like to have rub off on them a little. As such, it's no great surprise too see anybody from Justin Bieber through to Zac Efron and those clearly-not-set-up shots of skateboarding in a supermarket, rolling around on seven sheets of ply.
So, when you see a celebrity talking both knowledgeably and enthusiastically about skateboarding, it's kind of unusual. And yet, that's exactly what American film star, comedian, and born-again-calorie-counter Jonah Hill has done. You know, Jonah Hill. The dude that's kind of dirty, and grubby, and sometimes ... you know.
Talking to skateblog CrailTap, he was meant to list his top five skate edits of all time, but his obvious and infections enthusiasm for the subject took over, and he starts lovingly listing his all time favourite hammer parts. And it has to be said, he pulls some absolute bangers out of his bag.
Whether you know them all well, or you're absolutely new to them all, sit back and enjoy the parts that got the big man stoked.
