Filmed at The Park in Geelong on my iPhone on July 4, 2013, featuring Johnny Jensen as the main event, Shane Duck as the he support act, a guest appearance by Gav Drumm with a line I filmed of him at the very end of the day’s proceedings at the Australian Rolling Open on July 11, 2015, plus a very special cameo at the very end.
The video is primarily to hype everyone for this weekend’s Victorian Titles at The Park, as well as to showcase my friend Johnny’s skating ability. I shot this 4 years ago, and recently Johnny reminded me how light footed and talented he is on the blades, when he carried our Killerboots street hockey team to the Grand Final in our rookie season. Following the Grand Final I showed a friend all this footage from
Geelong of Johnny and I felt compelled to finally put it together. I’ve always been drawn to Metallica’s track, Orion, released in 1986 on their Master Of Puppets record. It’s long, epic, and requires a certain caliber of skating to do it justice. I felt Johnny ticked the boxes and is an old skool metal head so it felt right to use the track. I hope you enjoy, and get pumped for The 2017 Vic’s!
