  • Video Hype Van Life Part I
    • Back in June the whole crew went on a good old fashioned demo tour across the US to hype up the Pretty Sweet video. You can read a real article about it in the new Thrasher that's out now, and there's gonna be a bunch of video episodes on their site. Here's a bunch of photos that weren't in the article. This is our posse when we set sail. Not too shabby.

  • House Meeting!
    • 1_cory_filming

      A couple of weeks ago we had a meeting at Cory and Elijah’s house to talk about a top secret video project. When we got there Cory was already filming. That has to be a good sign.

    • 2_waiting_phones

      Aside from the Trunks we had a heavy managerial presence on hand. (Making high powered phone deals no doubt.)

      Vinnie is off the wheeling machine and walking around! He’s gonna be killing it in no time. Snake was there for creative input too.

    • 13_eli_over_rick

      Rick even got involved in the action. Elijah went Evel Kinevil over him.
