Although I’ve interviewed a lot of rad skateboarders for Giant Robot mag (Cab, Koston, Song, Nguyen, Anderson…), I’ve never claimed to be good. So I was surprised and stoked when my friends asked me to make a cameo in a 90-second skate video that has been submitted to a contest put on by Australia’s Penny Skateboard company. Penny boards look like candy-colored plastic toys but are super solid and seriously fun. I think the short that my friends Tad and Thy produced communicates that really well with ace photography by skate video vet Wing Ko, Giant Robot’s own Minister of Color Pryor Praczukowski helping out with shooting and edits, and music by Bootie Brown from the Pharcyde. (Spoiler alert: Pizza is served up by Pizzanista!’s Salman Agah at the climax.) Check out the video at skateboard.tv and give it five stars!
