Turn on the bright lights.
Yeah Right! was Girl's video from 2003. It featured a lot and reminded me of an old Powell Peralta video. This would be due to the length, the number of parts, the skits and the variety of filming techniques. There was some high tech movie magic going down to go with more straight forward filmed skateboarding. I tend to prefer things that are simpler over Hollywood glamour, but at the same time if you have the opportunities to do things, you might as well take them. Yeah Right! has classic parts from Brandon Biebel, Brian Anderson, Marc Johnson, Rick McCrank, Mike Carroll and Gino Iannucci. I like the skit with the Crailtap board that rolls around by itself from spot to spot. I was going to watch all of it last night, but I was tired and called it bedtime after MJ. That's the problem with getting old.
The next flick from the Girl and Chocolate camp is called Pretty Sweet. It comes out in November.
