Get excited everyone. It looks like St. Louis might finally have it’s first legitimate skateboard company on it’s hands. Thanks to the fine guys at DTR (that’s Desire To Ride for those of you unfamiliar with what those initials stand for) for representing St. Louis and skateboarding so beautifully. I was so inspired by their video that I took the time to log my thoughts below. Just a little side note, the commentary makes the most sense if you read it while watching the video. Enjoy!
1. You probably would have been better off sticking with Monkey Bubbles. At least then, people would have been able to tell how stupid you are from the title alone.
2. What IS the pure essence of what you’re trying to say? Cause after nearly four minutes of explaining, I have no fucking clue what you’re talking about.
3. Word to the wise, a company title made of three initials that define a very generic statement…hardly genius.
4. I would have loved to hear more about your high school “career.” Maybe in the next video?
5. Yeah, man. Screw corporate! Screw having a uniform to be a team! I TOTALLY FEEL YOU, BRO!
6. Luckily for you, I watched this video while sitting in a rolling chair, so I DO know what you’re talking about.
7. Dude, cool, um, and, like, rad, uhh, dude, awesome, homies, rad.
8. “It’s more of this, the desire to ride, the desire to play on just a rail not to say it’s a rail but skate it how it’s, you know, how you think it should, just play on it, play on it from the sides, you know, I don’t know, it’s the whole rise above and do what you want.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
9. Tell me more about the skateboarder doing a steezy trick on a bridge and the part about “the whole capture essence of it” cause I’d really like to know.
10. Seriously, how much did you have to pay the filmer to hold his laughter for the entire time it took to film this?
11. Can I use it as a weapon and beat the shit out of you with it?
12. Not to nit-pick, but it’s actually polyurethane, not rubber. Rubber was so 1972, brah.
13. I think you should stick with the whole Desire to Rise thing instead. That sounds much more promising. Especially since it is for anyone that “rises above the occasion of just sitting there watching T.V.” Like me, for instance. I am rising above the occasion of just sitting here and watching your video by taking the time to tell you how much of an idiot you are. Can I get on the flow team for that?
14. You totally saved your self at the end by doing your best “Tim Newsham” impression and making the whole video sound like a joke. Well played.
15. And you’re right…it’s not a fucking company.
