bones brigade-future primitives on google video

classic bones brigade skate vid from 1985 featuring the likes of tony hawk, rodney mullen, steve caballero, ad more actin like damn fools as only a bunch of professional teenage skaters from the 80s could. this was my favorite skate video when i was a kid, mostly due to the new york street skating footage about 35 minutes in, classic. not to mention all the amazing 80s fashion goodness. i cant believe people ever wore this shit. i cant believe i ever wore some of that shit. anyone who thinks 80s fashion was cool should watch this shit, cause you are sadly mistaken.jams and hot pink evvvvverywhere.
