Ryan Sheckler, Torey Pudwill, Ryan Decenzo and Zered Bassett feature in this new piece from
Red Bull. Called ‘Perspective’, according to the blurb the clip meshes, “Hollywood quality cinematography with the highest caliber skaters“.
It’s rad to see ‘Sleepless’ by Flume used in a skate clip and the idea of taking four guys from completely different places onto common ground to find elements unique to each of their hometowns was great. But I can not stand to hear about how rad everyone else they’re skating with is… Unless it was interspersed with one of them saying “fuck that guy, what a douche” I don’t buy it. It makes the whole thing a lot cheesier than it needs to be and takes away from how visually impressive this clip is. Also, I could happily lose the awkward product call out for the bungee – it’s not quite, but almost, a Mr. Black voice over moment.
I’m not a massive fan of energy drinks, but at least these guys are putting their money into athletes and some impressive clips. All 16 minutes are below and well worth watching.
