Skater Boys Talk Thumbs For EA Games
If you're a skater, you might like this new campaign for the new Playstation3 game "skate" from EA Games which, in one spot, features pro riders Mike Carroll, Rob Dyrdek, Terry Kennedy, Ryan Gallant and Danny Way. If you're not a skater, you're probably gonna think the semi-forced hipsterims such as "hate on" and "wouldn't be trippin' too much" make the spot, well, lame. Or, if you're just a regular person who happens to see this on TV, you're thumb will probably be on the fast forward button whizzing by the spot in a move analogous to EA Games tossing its TV dollars into a burning flame.
And if you're sick of listening to us bitch about this campaign, you can just go to the campaign website where you can hang with outtakes, teasers and additional footage of the skater boys doing their thing with their thumbs. Created by Heat, the commercial were shot by The Malloys and edited by Phoenix Editorial & Design's Bob Frisk.
