Fruit Shoot Hydro

This Hydro commercial imitating a video game is a nice low tech complement to the high tech pinball game we saw earlier with the Mountain Dew setup. Not much for actual skating, but it is a great example of low budget creativity. In one section stuntman Alex Midler is riding one of those led boards. If your autism talent is remembering obscure skateboard marketing facts, you may remember Fruit Shoot put together a beginners skateboarding guide for the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts new (at the time) “Street Sports” merit badge back in 2008. Two versions of the Hydro commercial after the jump.

– Thanks to Keith “method” Ayers for the tip.

Editor’s Note: Thes e commercials have been removed after a few years. Damn those marketing executives. “We can’t have any off-message advertising out there.”
