Arnette Crew Clash FINALS: Critters vs Yawgoons


After however many weeks this thing has gone one, we’ve seen upsets and runaways, but this is the one that really matters. By next Monday morning we will officially know which crew will earn themselves a coveted slot in the extras Think Thank’s 2011 movie, Ransack Rebellion. A real movie, on a real DVD, that you can keep on your real bookshelf and watch over and over. Will it be the Critters, a crew made up of a mishmash of SLC transplants or the Yawgoons, the east coast kids who hold it down at Yagoo Valley in the shred-i-center of Rhode Island? This is the most important vote you’ll make this year (unless you voted in a real election) so watch both videos (again if you already have) then vote for the video you’d actually want to watch again on your TV this fall.

  • mistahfabbydavis

    duh…critters winning

  • steeez

    both were sick but yawgoons takes it… creative spots fun edit to watch. nice job to both crews for makin it this far

  • Stevie

    Considering the critters spammed their way to beat KTB by magically geting 80 votes over night last round…. Its Yawgoons. Plus theirs was way better anyway with out a question

  • Shredface

    I didn’t watch all of the other vids, but I find it hard to believe the critters video was best one from that bracket.

  • Chuck Schick

    Yaw should win based on Dylan alone.

  • cacao

    Filming, riding, editing, creativity, all Yawgoons. Nose press to nose manual at 2:19?! I ain’t EVER seen that before on a snowboard. Yawgoons are the future.

  • Elzhi

    Yawgoons for sure. That whole vid was sick.

  • southerner

    Its all about the critters here, how is a ton of tube parts going to fit into a think thank video? Its about the creativity here

  • Hash Slinging Slasher

    How did critters ever make it this far?

  • What’s sick about yawgoons is they make the most of a really shitty resort. being from Michigan I have alot of respect for people who can do that. plus, Dylan Gamache is a fucking jedi.

  • solely based on that 180, 5-0 180 out…. that saara girl has better style than any girl i’ve ever seen. GOT DAMN!

  • pewbs

    critters spammed their fucking shit so hard. and then you watch yawgoons. and they film good. and are creative. and they don’t cheat.

  • that guy

    how do i vote for kick the bucket?

  • mrs. holce

    be careful yawgoons critters may spam this one too

  • lets have a spam free round here boys

  • Scarlett O

    Why are Critters being penalized for getting out and building interest in the competition and campaigning for votes? I like the beach footage in Yawgoons, but I think they spent too much time in the park. I like that Critters were creative and did some different things with their editing, like black and white fades, creative angles and speed changes.

  • ^

    critters filming was haynus idiot

  • too short

    yawgoons video shits on the critters. goons are on a whole nother level by far

  • mn


  • F***ing Freaks

    Yawgoons Duhhhhhhhhhhh

  • i voted for McCain

  • Ballz deep

    Im still trying to figure out how the Kotbrats didnt beat the Yawgoons, their video was pure gold

  • gary busey

    yeah yawgoons are gonna take this one.. up the ass lolz

  • tombrokoff

    Yawgoons flick is smooth to watch and fresh, how many people have you seen shred a waterslide or flip at the beach? critters had some fun stuff but there is no contest here.

    Goons by K.O.

  • Fonzie

    Yawgoons got my vote, their vid is Yawgood. Both are dope actually, but I enjoyed the Yawgoons a bit more, and the waterslide, beach stuff, even the tubes, seems more like ThinkThank’s vibe. Filming/editing was ill too.

  • Mom

    Crit with Whit, legit as shit.

  • hamlet

    the goons are boss

  • Jacob Krugmire

    Man i should have made a video. It would have been way sicker.

  • nick lipton

    i’m a fucking pussy

  • Will

    if you don’t vote Critter, put your head in a shitter.

  • Rachel Ray

    The Food Network will vote for Critters

  • the truth

    girls snowboarding > andrew nagel

  • The real truth

    The truth > a bitch

  • K. Holce’s baby mama

    Vote CRITTERS OR Punch the place!

  • trailertrashjerm

    every body in both vids can obviously shred! I’m just gonna say that one crew worked a lot harder to get there shots. park footy don’t count, sorry.

  • trailertrashjerm

    so i just read the comments. i was wondering if spamming is what the kids call setting up a spot yourself, running a generator, and paying fines instead of buying lift tickets these days? back in the day we called that doin the damn thing.

  • Damian Sanders

    back in the day rollerbladers skied…

  • dave mcgrath

    is it weird if i want to have sex with all the critters, at once, then the yawgoons?

  • K. Holce’s baby mama

    *punch the pale
    sorry for the type-o busy feeding baby JHolce

  • ummm

    really though, the critters video sucked, let’s be honest here people.

  • Agreed^

    it would be a disgrace if the critters video was in a think thank movie.

  • matty

    fines? they didnt get fines for any of those spots. half of the vid was filmed at rail gardens and that elementary school. those were the softest “urban” spots ive ever seen. I have seen everyone of the critters spots before…nobody wants to watch them over and over with a lot less talent. yawgoons had spots 99% of you have never and will never see.

  • trailertrashjerm

    ok man, when u ride a rail so knobbed up the bails are edit worthy i dont really think that is “soft” urban. and the goons water slide stuff was like a patchwork patterns part or other tt vids but i dont really wanna see any park in a think thank movie ever. lets demand a goons, ktb, critters super edit for the win!

  • waxmelm

    punch the pail

  • sniff the trout


  • Murph

    most of yawgoons spots were in a neff east vs west last year.. so creative. last year

  • Rosanne Westaby

    This is nice because with its cost, its good enough if you find treasures using this Tesoro (Treasure) Detector.
