Anytime the most fanciful gentlemen in skateboarding come out with something new – you can bet your ass we’re going to cover it. We’re speaking, of course, about the Fancy Lad crew, that wild and unpredictable bunch of boys out of Boston that we’ve been happily watching since we first premiered one of their videos half-a-decade ago. Recently though the lads have hit the big time, putting out parts with Adult Swim and with a t-shirt company that also apparently does skateboarding stuff too.
Lucky for us all, the lads have blessed us with a great bit of shenanigans and strangeness and “skateboarding” from a tour they took to promote their latest video, “FL4.” So take a seat and enjoy half-an-hour of dweebery and debauchery from the most lovably deranged minds in the industry!
And if you want to get really deep into the Fancy Lad wormhole, listen to their Jenkem Mix, or watch their 2013 video “New Hell”, or see Colin Fiske’s 57-minute magnum opus, or peep their classic “FL3”.
