Rumors were abounding, opinions were legions, and confronted on internet, but this time, it's official: by including the "ollie over a large size car" in a downhill line, it is Brandon Westgate that tackles the title… And seize the opportunity to switch sponsors, in the meantime!
The surprise attack seemingly being the preferred technique at the FA Sk8 Fucks camp, this promo for their sister brand, Hockey, drops with no fanfare, and uses the same aesthetic in its form: no music, no animation, just powerful skateboarding, certainly shining even more that way. Why stage it when actions speak that loud? One would think of Piscopo lines, here…
Color Fools keeps on unfolding, with a second part that could seem tricky, at first: yellow! That would be unless the Yellow Fool is Stéphane Zanette, as he's the kind of guy with always a new spot up his sleeve! Julien Paccard, the film maker had this to say about his Fool: "Stéphane is 40, lives in Barcelona where he is teaching math, and skates more than anyone I know. We met about seven years ago, in Annecy, where I was doing University. We skated a lot together, with a similar look at it. Now, he is a good friend whom I travel with on the regular, and with equal contentment each time. He is behind the SkhateYou site, which will tell you a lot about the guy…"
Second to most populated arrondissement of the city, the XVIIIth is a fascinating cocktail, in between highly touristic spots and a social and cultural diversity that surely ranked it quite high amongst the infamous "no go zones" of Fox News… All this actually makes for one of the most representative areas of Paris, for all its contradictions and its richness. Plus, this arrondissement is built on hills, which can only add to it all!
When it comes to Parisii, the XVIIIth is also a mix of sorts, as Greg Dezecot and Olivier Fanchon have decided to invite the new generation along, including its filmers. Expect to see new faces, on spots rarely seen, but all still cooked à la Parisii!
You can follow all Parisii, since the beginning, here.
