Zach Moore (director of last summer’s remix blockbuster, “Jake Johnson: The Movie“) is front-running for delivering 2021’s best laughs so far. A) “The Ultimate Skate Songs Collection” envisions skate videos’ most iconic music in the format of a late-night TV commercial for a CD box set. The plot twist in this one is so brilliant.

Jeff Cecere has a great New York edit up on Thrasher that includes footy from Brad Cromer, Carl Aikens, Brendan Carroll, and a lot of other familiar faces. Shout out to K.T. for ollieing those double bars on Sixth Avenue like eight years ago, too.
Brad Cromer also has a new interview up on Heckride. New Krooked vid this month.
