Extended time spent on our screens has lead to a collective reckoning with the footage we have compiled throughout the years. (Yesterday, I woke up to an iPhone notification informing me that I’d save an excess of 25 GB in storage by just deleting years-old conversations, which means any footage clear-out on this end has been postponed by months.)
Andrew Wilson, however, scrubbed his phone of video highlights for “Scrap Video,” which dates as far back as the 2016 Canada trip we took for the second QS Nike shoe + a brief period of time when you could openly suggest “Let’s go to Fat Kid Park” and not be laughed out of the room. In in the video, you’ll find specks of both 917 projects, Johnny’s “Skate Clip,” and even Dahlberg’s Cuba edit that made Nolan become a vegetarian.
You probably remember it from the 917 video, but the best part is when Nik does the double set ollie, and Johnny still has the push to catch to up with him even going downhill on soft wheels. Either that, or the cut that goes from Max Palmer to Lil’ Wayne.
