Kyota Umeki’s ‘Potluck’ Part

When Kyota won Stingwater’s coveted 2019 GRoETY award via an Instagram announcement, some of you were probably thinking, “Alright, where is the part?” (Antonio’s win came with a part.) Sidelined at the moment by an ankle injury from October, Kyota’s de facto GRoETY part became his section in Potluck, Diego Donival’s new one, which we are happy to share with you here.

If the Homies Video part was inspired by Misled Youth, this one was obviously inspired by Jaws v.s. the Lyon 25.

Potluck premiered back in December, and is a showcase of a new generation that came of age lurking around Labor, L.E.S., Tompkins, etc. looking for tree stumps to wallie and um, basketball hoops to drop in off. Features parts from Caleb Yuan, Kyota, Marcello Campanello, Isaac White, Quinn Bailey, Sully Corimer and Yaje Popson, who flies the flag for the 12th & A generation. You can buy a DVD or a VHS of the video via Diego’s Big Cartel page.

This got made before the Ishod + Kyle video dropped, yes.

Bronze obvs got top honors from everyone this week in terms of repeat viewing, but you should give I Only Have Eyes For You a whirl if you want a rad Euro video as we head into a 63-degree Saturday in January ♥

Have a good one.
