Tony Hawk Ride Gets Real!

Posted June 11, 2010 by Danny O'Dwyer in Editorial
For the second time in as many weeks, somebody from my hometown makes a brilliant video game movie.

What do you do with your tony Hawk Ride controller after you’ve realised the game is totally broken? Why drill some holes in it, throw on a pair of trucks, four wheels and use it as a real skateboard of course. Neil Sheehan of SECS Films in Waterford, Ireland came up with an idea is so insane, only a skater could have thunk it. You know what the best part is? If the authorities catch you it’s not a problem, because none of it is real! This had me in stitches by the end, enjoy Citizens.

Youtube version just up – quality will improve.

    Didn’t realise the Skate controller was that sturdy.
