Tony Hawk on Captain Kangaroo
Posted on Thursday, July 26 @ 21:04:58 Eastern by Duke_Ferris1981 and Tony is just a kid. If it weren't for the internet, how would we ever find stuff like this?
I met Tony once, years ago, although I'm sure he doesn't remember as he is contractually obligated to meet several hundred people an hour. Most recently I saw him a couple weeks ago at a disastrous Activision press conference where he was being interviewed by the irritating and clueless Jamie Kennedy. How bad was it? This bad.
Hey, Tony, in the unlikely event you read this, I was the guy in the front row next to Activision's Army guy who looked like he wanted to punch Jamie in the face. You can see the back of my head in that video, and when it sounds like two or three people laughed, understand there must have been 500 people in that room. Eventually you just had to laugh at how badly he was bombing.
Did you want to punch Jamie in the face, Tony? I sure did. At least you didn't have to sit through the whole thing.
Anyway, this video of "Skateboard Johnny", starring Jim Henson's Tony Hawk Babies and set to the tune of The Drunken Sailor, sets off all the right surreal neurons in my fevered brain.
