The thing that always bothered me about “Day In The Life” sections is they always looked so planned and scripted. Like the camera guy comes in and “wakes the skater up,” they visit a couple cool spots, “accidentally” bump into all their homies, crack a beer, and fade to black.
So naturally (stupidly) for this segment, we did the total opposite. We met up with the Gang Corp guys at the New York Supreme Courthouse and did whatever they were feeling. Rolling around Manhattan 20-deep was hectic, but we got some clips and somehow ended up on a boat.
If you’re not familiar with Gang Corp, they’re a New York-based crew that’s been making skate videos to shine a light on the sketchier hijinx the city offers. Rappers making it rain at the skate park? Starting kung-fu fights in Chinatown? Playing cee-lo in the middle of a subway car? Check, check, and check!
