With buddy Pat Rick away in the land of the rising sun, I was reminded of the horses song that he'd play occasionally in the early mornings at the Scoop.
I still watch this video at least 2 times a month. With over 27 million hits, clearly, I'm not the only one.
And it still blows me away every time.
I know it's so 2009. I know he's got newer ones. I know this just shows the parts where he's not wrecking.
But it's so damn good that sometimes when I'm done watching it I'm a tad weepy. The filmer/editor guy is just as talented as Danny. There's a bunch of cool little cinematic details that really show the passion of the guy that filmed/edited it (the observers materializing at 4:15 is probably the most obvious favorite, but I dig the cloud transition at 4:49 and the judicious use of slo-mo throughout, and I see somthing new I like every time I watch it).
The bit at 3:23-3:25 (the bit showing in the still above) just kills me every time. So seemingly simple and lovely, but so damn difficult.
