Louie Barletta #2.
"I love it! I only did what I saw guys like Neil Blender, Lance Mountain, and Jeff Grosso doing. Blame them! No, seriously, having fun comes in all forms from all different angles. To some, fun is big handrails. To others, it's a tall can and a red curb. The fun and satisfying thing about it is self-expression. The only thing that would bum me out is to see people doing it 'cause someone deemed it a hot new trend."
Rocking the Sketchers. Sorry, Lou.
An interesting note about this ad is that Sonic ran an ad five months later introducing Louie as a new team rider. He was doing a hurricane at Hubba Hideout.
