Sketchers Z Strap!


This is an old commercial for Sketchers Z Strap, but they still seem to run it every now and again. The 2D style animation is very low budget looking. I’m not sure if that’s an intentional nod to the Speed Racer era of japanimation or just a cost cutting measure. It’s most notable when the villain is in hot pursuit on his 6 wheeled monster skate. He looks al little bit like Oogie Boogie from the Nighmare Before Christmas, and he’s not really pushing, he’s just dragging that foot! In the climatic scene, our hero the ninja skateboarder shows off his vintage z-roller trucks.

UPDATE: Well, shit. This is a 5 year old repost! You honor, the defendant was exhibiting signs of alzheimer’s as early as 2015.

A little bit of Tron and a little bit of Spiderman.

Not only does the ninja skater prefer alternative truck technology, he appears to be using a an electric skateboard too, unless that’s a skate case.
