Finnish skateboarder turned photographer Arto Saari hosted a pretty unique invitational recently, giving skaters the opportunity to session Helsinki Airport. The video is definitely a promotion for the airport and airline involved, and they probably should have cut out 90% of the voiceover, but it’s still pretty cool. Somehow I don’t see this happening in any American airport any time soon.

ImprovEverywhere / Welcome Back!

Improv Everywhere strikes again! This time around they are welcoming total strangers at JFK airport! Flowers, balloons, and personalised posters (names taken from car driver signs)! Great stuff!

I know there will be comments regarding the fact that they plug Absolut at the end but hey we all gotta eat and I can appreciate how minimal they kept the advertising.
