You can argue all day about the way corporations backpack on skate culture every once in a while and in cases we’d tend to agree with you. However, to play devils advocate in the recently flared up debate, it’s hard to deny just how nice the (semi)recent Kilian Martin video in collaboration with mb! (an online lifestyle magazine by Mercedes Benz). Although a car probably slightly off the radar of most skateboarders, they kept their advertising simple and low key, simply showing the world something amazing. The Spanish Kilian Martin commands his deck, at times two, perfectly as it sticks to his feet while he toys with street skating, pushing his quick feet to their full creative potential. Although not always the most graceful of skateboarding, you can’t help but admire his ingenuity and ability to push a combination to it’s absolute limit. Brett Novak does a fine job on the camera for a stylish skate film in some incredible locations. Check it out below.
