If you couldn’t tell already, we’re having Static Week here on Jenkem. To keep the hype going, we figured what better way to celebrate the long-standing independent video series than with the premiere of our friend Christian Maalouf’s part in Static 6? You’ll probably recognize Christian from when we nerded TF out at the toy fair together.
We’re happy to bring you this four-minute, poppy part where he makes handrails look like puppy pet gates and the Empire State look like your homie’s house in South Jersey.
Check it out, and while you daydream about the days when all videos looked this beautifully grainy consider popping over to the Theories site and grabbing a DVD. Yes, those still exist.
