Favorite Video Friday – Skateboards

I almost just brushed this week aside, but with the recent props from Mooney, the pressure was on. I decided to go back to the music video roots, or at least the roots of my favorite music video director, Spike Jonze. While he hasn’t featured skateboarding in any of his videos that I’m aware of (except his first, Sonic Youth’s 100%, but I’m not much of a Sonic Youth fan), he started out making skate videos and skate videos are still at the heart of guerrilla filmmaking, which should be at the heart of any good music video. You’ll see kids with cameras at just about any skate park today, and that’s all thanks to people like Spike Jonze and amazing videos like Yeah Right (I recommend it if you have a spare 72 min).

This week: Skateboarding

Lupe Fiasco – Kick Push

This video’s pretty literal.

Coconut Records – West Coast

I know absolutely nothing about these guys, but I kind of dig their style.

Classixx – Cold Act Ill

Old school beats for old school video.
