best skate video intro EVER.

hands down... the best skate video intro ever. yeah, i know it's over the top, and i love it. i also know this isn't new, and i'm sure a lot of you have already seen this. but for those of you who haven't... or for those of you who need another gander. here it is. in all of it's spike jonze glory.

for those that don't know.... this intro is the opening segment to a skate video titled fully flared (click the link to watch the entire video) by lakai.

fully flared was directed by spike jonze, ty evans, and cory weincheque.

I was so stoked when this video came out. I still wonder if those explosions were real or just CGI.

i read in an interview with mike mo (the guy doing the switch flip over the exploding stairs) that all the explosions and pyrotechnics were real. i mean it had to be super cheap breakable wood... and some type of fake cement/rocks... but they were all real napalm explosions. pretty crazy.

and for Mel... the intro song is:
m83 - lower your eyelids to die with the sun

i hadn't seen that before. thanks!

i'm not sure if it was supposed to be, but it was kind of funny, and reeeally awesome at the same time.

like, the second to the last one, where the guy ate it and disappeared into the explosion was pretty hilarious, but then the last one was like, "ooooh man, woooooooah."
