Or is #FBF Flashback Friday still a #thing?
With “cherry” out, Static IV might be the last major video left to look forward to this year. (*Insert blurb about full-length videos not being what they used to be*) We all want to see a new Tierney or Aaron Herrington part, but Jahmal and Quim having sections is probably the most awaited aspect of the project, at least for the born pre-1990 skate nerd contingent. Anticipation for both has a bit of an east coast Pretty Sweet cloud around it, in that there’s an understanding this will likely be the last time we see a substantial batch of footage from these guys.
After watching Quim’s Overground Broadcasting part for the 100th time, a subsequent YouTube binge revealed his seldom-seen Adidas commercial that ran in 411 back in 1998. Everyone would rather forget what most major shoe companies’ first jab at a skate program in the nineties looked like, but Adidas kinda killed it with these commercials. They were shot on film and covered a pretty eclectic team (Paulo Diaz, Quim, Jahmal, Matt Beach.) Jahmal’s version somehow isn’t online, and we have a FQ one left over from last year’s “Lost Tapes” re-edit, so here it is below, uncut.
Though probably to a lesser extent than how Gino is “the Wu-Tang guy,” between this and his Eastern Exposure 3 part, Jahmal is sorta the Gil Scott-Heron guy. That’s why we subconsciously ended up using the most Gil Scott-Heron-sounding song not by Gil Scott-Heron in the aforementioned remix video.
Have a good weekend everyone. (70 degrees tomorrow!!!)
Unrelated but important: New all-China Lucas Puig part on the TWS site. He does a nollie crook nollie varial flip out in it and it somehow looks awesome.
