Justin Strubing #2.

If I recall correctly, the story behind this ad was that Brad Staba made a horizontal move at Tum Yeto from Foundation to Toy Machine. The F Troop picked up Strubing from Adrenalin, which had gone out of business at that time. I think this was when Toy Machine was in a state of flux with its team. Bam Margera, Kerry Getz, Mike Maldonado and Chris Senn had all quit or were let go. This left Brian Anderson, Elissa Steamer and Ed Templeton so acquiring Staba was a good idea. However, this version of the Machine didn't last long as Staba went to enjoi, Steamer to Bootleg and BA to Girl.

Yup, I forgot about that. Didn't Haney call Brad on a recent KOTR?

Haney had probably split for Arcade around about the time this ad came out.
