Ooo! Ooo! You Gotta See This Awesomely Cool Video!


"hi there!
thanks for a great site!
thought u might like this, an awsome video with skateboarding tv
cool stuff.think you' d love it!!"

"Came over this link while surfing the net. It's a new ad from director Daniel Eskils and KesselsKramer. It's really cool, and I have no idea how it's done!"

Well it must be pretty f'ing good then right? Can't you guys just come out and say you are working for the brand? The agency? The seeding company? Instead of telling us you just randomly "came over" (which is actually pretty gross when you think about it) an "awesome video" that's "really cool" and that we're going to "love it!"?

You're as dirty as George. But, you crack me up and that's why I adore both of you.
