Max Palmer: The Video A.K.A. Paul Coots’ ‘HIT’ Video

A colleague remarked that months ago, he had driven past the red Navy Yard Philly step, saw a disconfigured piece of wood up to it, and knew that it had to be a Max Palmer concoction — despite there being no skaters in sight. (That spot is also the headline image for the first Max part QS ever posted in 2011.) He was right.

The Hit Video is the year-plus in the making project by Paul Coots, a principal architect behind the BSA videos. At the premiere on Saturday night, drunkards [remembered this was actually Max Hull’s quote and he wasn’t that buzzed ♥] lovingly dubbed it “basically Max Palmer’s Wonderful horrible life.” It feels like a warm VX throwback to the sideyard era of Johnny Wilson videos, with cameos from Cyrus, DREEWWWWWWW, Conor (!) and even John Choi (!!!) along the way.
