Apparently there is an activity that adults enjoy but most people think of as a toy, fad, or a phase to grow out of. Sound familiar? Although they both spin and have axles, I’m talking about yo-yos, not skateboards. Who knew there was a crossover? (Wait, isn’t that a yo-yo trick too?) Yo-Yo Nation is offering these limited edition skateboard and t-shirt combos featuring artwork “..based around a trick invented or pushed to the next level by the artist himself.” More pics and an amazing Hail Mary Gratuitous Tony Hawk Appearance after the jump.
Form the product description:
The creators of the popular Fluchs yo-yo, Eetsit yo-yo, and Bapezilla yo-yo, bring you their collectible Anti-Deck series!
“Each deck’s artwork is based around a trick invented or pushed to the next level by the artist himself.”
The first of Anti-Yo’s skateboard deck and t-shirt series features Paul Escolar, and his ever-so-ubiquitous trick, the Green Triangle!
Paul Escolar, and his ever-so-ubiquitous trick, the Green Triangle! Worst episode ever. Did I say that out loud? Paul must have some fans because there are only 38 out of 50 left and the product isn’t even shipping yet. If you have $84.99 you can reserve yours.
Too bad there isn’t some sort of skateboard trick with the same name. I’m surprised Tony Hawk doesn’t have a signature yo-yo. how can I make the connection? Both Tony Hawk and Yo Yo Ma appeared in Apple Computers Switch ad campaign back around 2002 or 2003. Damn! I’m good.
On a final note. I’d just like to post this choice frame grab that makes Tony look like he’s stoned or mildly retarded. I’m really making Henri Cartier Bresson proud now. I can feel it.
