3 is a Magic Number.

If you’re into Izakaya restaurants and you live in Vancouver then you know the goodness that is Guu. I met Benny there the other night, and as we dined on octopus balls and fried cheese with mango I caught up with him about what is going on these days at EA, and I learned that he was the dude behind the skate videos Bigger and Better Things and Sophomore Jinx. Another close friend of mine from my days working at EA, Tom Johnson, actually did the titles for Sophomore Jinx by drawing on napkins, letting the ink bleed, and then scanning in all the letters, transposing them onto a snowy television screen.

Today Benny hit me with a link to this video he made of Antisocial’s “3 is the Magic Number” Ramp Contest. This video is AWESOME, love the energy – these guys session the transition to pieces (how can you front on mini ramp?). Also, have a look at Sophomore Jinx, Bigger and Better Things after the jump!
