After Gino, there’s a contested debate about who has been as unflinching in their career-long dedication to never putting out a single piece of #badfootage. Our vote goes to French style-god, J.B. Gillet. Since overlooking the weird French rap in Rodney V.S. Daewon II to observe the brilliance of his futuristic trick selection, to the dude easily earning a top three distinction of favored parts among the QS office in the mid 00s, and all the way down to a late period that trumps any of his SoCal contemporaries (we already tackled Europeans’ ability to crap on all similarly-aged Americans re: the “people just want to see you skate”-maxim three years ago), J.B. has held a special place in our hearts.
Here’s a quick remix of his best footage from Bon Voyage and onward — based on a concept expanded from a two-month old Vine. Thanks for everything man.
If J.B’s Freedom Fries part doesn’t convince you to maybe not film your boy doing a crooked grind nollie flip at L.E.S, probably nothing will :(
