Jake Johnson Post-Mind Field Mixtape

August 24th, 2012 | 9:55 am | Video Re-Edits | 18 Comments

As promised, here’s pretty much all of the Jake Johnson footage that came out after Mind Field, edited to Curtis Jackson’s ten-year-old late-summer hit. Everything is ripped from YouTube, so there are no skate noises. (Who the hell knows where that Manolo guy found the patience to re-dub skate noises over skate video rips. God bless him for doing so though.) We’re not dubbing skate noises and don’t have raw footage, so that typically means the clip is getting slapped together less meticulously (see here) than usual, and edited to the last song that anyone less-idiotic would use for a Jake Johnson part. Sourced from the recent Brick Harbor clip, the Destructo mini part, all the Map Masquerade footage, the Skateboarder Amazon mini-videos, Bill Strobeck’s clips, and the Gravis “VX is Dead” section.” No “video art” or gratuitous non sequiturs included.

“Bro, this song like doesn’t go with the part at all…”

  • in an era where skateboarding has gotten incredibly gay for a myriad of reason, Jake Johnson reminds me that its still pretty chill. Thank you JJ for having a “not gay” trick selection

  • Great song, and probably the only thing that saves the clip from the lack of authentic skate soundz. I mean I guess besides the skating. And the P.I.P. was a nice touch.

  • When you tag the post with “damn son, you used to be tha man, homie” does this mean you’re also positing the question “what tha fuck happened to you? ” or is this more toward the lines of “cuz i hussle baby, this rap shit is so easy, im gettin what you get for a brick to talk greasy” ? Because im not sure if the song is suppose to be depressing or hype.

  • No, it’s in reference to the song’s most recognizable line and nothing to do with the subject of this particular video. A lot of that footage is pretty recent, so Jake’s still killing it.

    I’ll remove that tag though, you bring up a good point.

  • Even w/ the tag removed, that was still a straight up dumb choice for a song; the lyrics are too front-and-center to ignore, even if you think the beat goes hard and 50’s flow is nice. The only dude who could “skate”/have old footage edited to that is Wenning, obviously.

  • You’re scrutinizing music selection on a website run by people who spend money on producing skateboards shaped like snowmen and Lamborghinis.
