Ollie On The Mind

Somewhere after Anonymous and before Shitheads Vol. 8, Iota Skateboards was attempting to do way more than just being a board company operated out of the back of Fobia (that ghost url is still so weird). Around the time mentioned Nesser and Olu jumped from their respective board sponsors to Iota, and a tradeshow type promo was made that I'd completely forgotten about; The Viking managed to track it down on the youtube. Brian Heck as Hecky Do-Good, along with that shock and awe noseslide nollie flip. Pre-Roll Elijah Collard; Coffman backside nollie flip! Ye old Viking. Mr. Benson; capris. Perhaps the best part (to me) is the always controversial H.O.V.A. Shitheads trailer that was tacked on the back of the promo.

Completely unrelated, conceptual art up for auction that perpetually puts itself up for auction, that is, if the buyer follows the purchase agreement.
