Entièrement Brillé

Fully Flared is a skateboarding video by Lakai, directed by Ty Evans, Spike Jonze and Cory Weincheque, and features one of the most incredible intros I've EVER seen.

The video's release was postponed for about two years, mainly due to important team additions. Overall it took about four years to make.

Originally, Evans, Jonze and Howard played with different ideas which were all a lot more dangerous. The intro was then filmed 3 weeks before the premiere.

According to Brandon Biebel, the most dangerous part of the introduction was Mike Mo Capaldi's switch flip, which was followed by a staircase being blown up with napalm.

The Soundtrack to the film includes no less than, David Bowie, She Wants Revenge, King Diamond, Bad Brains, Judas Priest, Echo & The Bunnymen, Public Enemy, Unkle and The Flaming Lips.

If the part at [1:03] doesn't almost move you to tears, wait until the part at [3:49] and especially [4:11]! Superior film-making! Thanks to Sean Ingram for the tune in...Photo by A. Favennec.
