If you think we post some shitty videos, you should see the stuff we don’t post! Whether it’s because people have to idea how to export, hold a camera steady, or snowboard, some of the videos we receive on a daily basis provide LOLz and not much else. We felt like maybe it was time to share some of the bad and the ugly, with the specific reasons they were rejected for everyone’s viewing displeasure. We’d say enjoy, but let’s be realistic here…
Timberline Opening Day from Tranny Finders
We wanted to run this video, really, we did. We like Timberline, and these kids were obviously having fun. Plus it was the GoPro we intended to make. But… at over 4 minutes and lacking much in the way of real tricks, well, if we posted this thing on its own the comments would have gone something like: “why is this so bad” “yobeat sucks” “I hate everything” “I touch young boys” etc. So we passed.
KOTCAST II all the way from Germany
This was set up in the email we received as a game of SNOW, but only some of it, because the camera battery died. We didn’t have to watch it to know we’d reject it, but did anyway. So: bad light, plus games of SNOW being the most boring video subject ever, equals no thanks, but since the purveyors of the video stated outright they were hoping to be hated on in multiple countries, plus get sponsored with views, posting it here is the least we could do. Also, Kotcast literally translated means poop crew.
LUCISHRED #1 at Bear (via France)
We’ll admit, the fact that people from Europe send us videos is neat. Like really neat. Small world, ya know? And this video, we really wanted to like, because they were obviously going for some style that we Americans can’t even understand! But the reality is, if the snowboarding, filming and editing were better, it would have been a sick video!
Ramblin’s Rail Poach
Actually, we almost just posted this one on its own, because after all the comment drama fun the Ramblin’s Rail edit provided, this video of some kids who found said chained-up rail, and proceeded to ride it anyway, could probably stand alone as a hilarious post. But then we didn’t get around to it, so it seemed easiest to just include it here.
Keep in mind these are just from the past week… and by no means all of them. So keep the videos coming, cause even if we reject your edit, apparently we might just post it. And it’s ALL ABOUT THE HITZ.
