I looked but couldn't find it, I was even unsure about submitting it for that reason but couldn't see it anywhere else...
This is actually the intro to the entire skate movie, by Lakai. It's about an hour and a half long, if I remember correctly.
For insane awesomeness, the stunt with Mike Mo Capaldi at 4:00 minutes in was done with actual napalm; the other stunts done with real explosives, no computer graphics. None of this was done by stunt actors, all of it by the skaters themselves.
Tony Hawk Down.
If Michael Bay directed an artsy skate video.
But don't get me wrong, this shit is awesome.

Not too bright, cool all the same.
Stupid kids doing stupid stunts and hoping stupid parents will pay for their medical bills leaves me unimpressed. Explosives are not innately cool.
Also, using slo-mo to dramatize a stunt is like dating with roofies - too fucking easy.
Yeah, you kinda don't know what you are talking about, Lakai is a company, these stupid kids are professionals that get to travel around the world doing what they love, and a lot of them most likely make more money than you do. And the ones who are merely adequate still get the sponsorship that lets them travel to places doing what they love on someone else's (the sponsorship company) dime.
I can see why that might make you angry and frustrated. I'm not sure what the catchy reply to 'Get off my lawn' is, but you just sound uninformed, old and embittered. That must suck.
Life's not so bad. We live in paradise considered to most of the rest of the world. Have a hug.
