Marc Jacobs skate ad

Marc Jacobs does a lot of confusing things but this is up there on the odd chart. They combine a skater called Tristen Maldonado, who is actually pretty decent; with two people who have never touched a skateboard before (note the trucks on the wrong way in the opening scene). The deck is designed to look like a piece of tattooed skin with a red bottom ply, when you skate it the red becomes exposed and it looks like the skin is cut, SO HARDCORE. Our boy Marc doesn’t realise however that the person buying this board doesn’t even know what trucks are let alone that the video shows them on backwards.
