Creature dropped an official “Welcome to the Team” part for Jon Gardner, which features a whole bunch of his best moments from Bruns 2 — or at least a handful of the most shout-at-the-screen inducing ones. You should still buy Bruns 2 though. Shout out to that phase Marquez went through in 2008 when he tried to film a Creature sponsor-me tape and would drive out to Sayerville 4x a week :)
Hopps put their “Saturday” commercial from the Polar premiere online. Features footage from Keith “Loudest Cheer at Any Premiere” Denley, and Brian Clarke skating the always cool-looking Museum of Natural History benches.
QS crowd fave Derm takes a step back from the crust and does some lines at L.E.S.
New iPhone video via Genesis featuring the N.Y. Ramp Co. quarterpipe, double-curb rainbow concoction at 12th & A, Keith Denley’s first clip of 2016, and other notable developments to occur in lower Manhattan skateboarding this past month.

An artsy and subdued remix video of 2013 Q.S.S.O.T.Y. Leo Gutman’s last part.
The GX1000 video premieres in New York on next Tuesday, April 19th. No info on venue yet, but *assuming* it will be where every skate video premiere in New York is :) Teaser here, and GX photo feature here.
