Alex Olson Directed a Skateboarding / Hacky Sack Video for VOGUE | Struggling for youth relevancy?
Can’t make this shit up. VOGUE seems to be struggling for relevancy in the youth market lately by taking on something they truly have no clue about – skateboarding.
At least this time they got Alex Olson (aka Call Me (917)Team-Handsome Bianca Chandon) to direct. And to his credit it seems like he’s taking the piss out of them a little bit. The video is a fluffy piece of a summer day in the life of a skater in nyc. Cruising the streets to Tompkins and then playing hacky sack while girls stare at them and talk about if hacky sack makes them want to fuck them more. Wait… is hacky sack a thing now?
Things are getting strange. What do skaters thing about all this culture appropriation from fashion?
