When Emerica made the This Is Skateboarding DVD, they took full advantage of the bonus disc by loading it with as many extra edits, montages, and weird easter eggs as possible. So much so that most people probably haven’t seen all the footage hidden on it.
Well, we dug out some of our favorite parts from the dusty DVD archives and are presenting them here to be enjoyed in all their glory. As outdated as DVDs are today, at least they were there to save these “throwaway” clips from being lost forever.

There are about 20 Easter eggs between the two discs, from Ed’s Sheep shoes video part, to Heath stomping boards to bits, Navarrette doing airs over topless girls, footage from the video premiere, a collection of ads for the video, a 411 day in the life segment with Chris Senn, and of course the entire segment on the Emerica mansion from On video, and so much more.

Does anyone have a list of the easter eggs?
October 12, 2018 2:45 pm
I do, I found them all. If you have a DVD player, the simplest thing to do, is when a chapter starts, hit the number 7 on your DVD remote. The chapter will then pause and the Easter egg will play automatically. If you dont have a DVD player and are using your xbox or ps4, then you’ll have to punch in a code, which is a combo of up/down/left/right. I dont have access to the list now, since I’m at work, but once at home I can post the list of Easter eggs and the codes.

damn what are the codes? epic
October 12, 2018 7:16 pm
I just tried the codes on my xbox 360, and they all worked. So, the key/legend for the codes: U = up, D = down, L = left, R = right , and for enter, press A or your xbox or PS4. Once the easter egg starts playing, you cannot pause, fast forward, rewind or stop. You just have to watch it all the way through. I will list the chapter, the code and what the Easter egg entails. Just enter the code as the chapter starts. (The formatting on this post may be off, so apologies in advance.)
