Picture the scene: A man with a hip facial hair is skateboarding though one of the coolest cities on Earth. He’s a man in love. So deeply in love that his every word is about the object of his affection. And the much armoured object in question? A skateboard.
You’d be forgiven for thinking this sounds like the latest independent cinema project of Joaquin Phoenix. The kind of silly movie your cool mate that likes Finnish hip-hop bangs on about for a month. The kind Sophia Coppola would direct, and Kevin Shields would do the soundtrack. Cloë Sevigny would doubtlessly be involved.
But alas, it’s not, This is in fact a genuine skate edit. And not just any skate edit. It might just be the most beautiful one we’ve ever seen.
