Julien Stranger #2.
Stranger's first ad for Real. I don't know if this is the best ad ever with him, but pretty much anything he is in is the best ever. It stuck in my mind for whatever reason after 15 years. I believe Ed Templeton was quoted as saying that Stranger was a guy who you were stoked on even if it was just a picture of him reading a book. He's riding the Salman Agah board with the horizontal stripes on it. For all the effort and skill that goes into board art, two decks that I really like are that one and the Duane Pitre olives. Minimalism is nice sometimes.
