Imagine the conversation: “Hey, we’ve got this rad new idea that’s going to change the face of skateboarding forever. How should we market it?”
“Well let’s find something hot, and then tell people how much hotter our board is. What’s hot? How about… Angelina Jolie?”
“Shit Dave, you’re a marketing genius! Give yourself a payrise and some more stock options in our soon-to-be-bankrupt company.”
The crazy thing is, this approach obviously worked on some people. Check out this dude here, he’s loving it!
And the description on his Youtube video is the cherry on the cake:
“I’ve skated for 5 years on this crazy board, fuck kick flips and standard street skating moves. I found, they should sell these boards as “all year street snowboarding deck” full downhill pads a must.
This deck can turn 90 degrees staying on it is all up to you. I melt & destroy the wheels with in 3-5 rides (so there alot of rotating wheels to try to wear & get more rides out of them) enjoy, cus if you don’t have to stop riding just because you grow, fact riding keeps me from not being or becoming an old, pissed off, grumpy, out of shape person.”
Wow. Just wow.
