We’re running a 2 for 1 special on Dork Sessions today. First up we’ve got some extreme wheelbarrowing from Alexander Siegfried. The gag is executed pretty well, even if it does run a little long. Next we have a tribute to Breaking Bad in the form of a toy Winnebego mounted with skateboard trucks. Yes, that is that a Tonka Truck.

Breaking Bad – Humphrey Industries
I made this skateboard out of a 1970’s Tonka truck, I was living in Texas and sharing the freeway with lots of big pickup trucks with aftermarket bumpers that belong on tanks. I also was studying all the episodes of the TV show Breaking Bad as I appreciated the main character, Walter White making the decision to take control of of his life and the trajectory of it. I skated heavily in the 80’s and had a profound impact on my artistic perspective. This film was shot at the Astoria Skate park in Queens New York and the “skateboard” was more like riding a roller skate with a cement block attached to it. Thanks for watching.
