Spike Jonze’s Skateboard Detonations

July 28, 2008

This fantastic slo-mo video sequence, in which top skateboarders ride through a postindustrial landscape rigged with explosives, is the intro to a skateboarding DVD called Fully Flared, which Ty Evans, Spike Jonze, and Cory Weincheque directed for the footwear company Lakai.

These people are reckless and crazy, and we get to watch!

Make sure you stick around until the end, because you’ll get to see an entire staircase get blown up with napalm.

The music is M83‘s “Lower Your Eyelids to Die With the Sun.”
