0 Spike Jonze vs. The Skaters

Director Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, the upcoming Where the Wild Things Are) wants to kill skateboarders.

Don’t ask me why, but the Rockville, Maryland filmmaker who got his start as a wildly imaginative music video creator and skate film director is now intent on destroying the entire punk-on-wheels community. This video is evidence.

But in all seriousness now folks, Mr. Jonze has made it his mission to incessantly push the boundaries of the skate movie genre for years (if you’ve seen the Invisible Boards segment from Girl Skateboards’ Yeah Right!, you know what I mean.)

With this UNKLE music video for their song Heaven, he’s at it again, this time with honest-to-goodness real life special effects (not the wimpy post-production kind). The video was recut from a scene of the skate film Fully Flared, co-directed by Ty Evans.

Let’s hope enough skaters survive for him to keep up the good work.
