If Vans decides to make a full length skate video, well, you go fucking watch it. Last weekend, Vans premiered “Propeller” to a packed house in swanky midtown NYC. We were there to watch the video and get as many drinks and tacos as possible.
Vans really turned it up for the premiere: free food and booze for the 8 o’clock watchers, and then a fancy after party at a hotel rooftop bar that no skater besides Tony Hawk could normally afford to drink at.
Anyways, check out some of the photos from the night below… We don’t want to give away too much about the actual video, hell, there was so much heavy shit packed into it that it’d be hard to even describe it if we did want to give spoilers (*cough* Cardiel has a trick *cough*). All we’ll say is watch it as soon as you can, because it’s one of those rare videos which actually holds up to the hype.
We are proud to report that in 2015, the full length skateboard video is still alive and well.
