Not the worst collab of 2018, but what the fuck is going on at Habitat? Castrucci's just phoning it in.

hell, if you're going to jump the shark and try to sell product based off the popularity of a tv show, why not just mega ramp launch over the shark and do a collab with the big bang theory. it's not like the shows these companies have been picking for collabs have deep ties to skateboarding (diamond X family guy, primitive X dragon ball z, primitive X frank and morty, primitive X transformers, enjoi X my little pony, etc.), so you might as well pick the most popular show out there. even if just 1% of the 18.4 million people that watch the show bought a deck as a wall hanger, it'd be a lot more product than some companies have sold throughout their entire existence. sure, getting the rights for the collab might be pricey, but if santa cruz was able to do those star wars decks, i imagine it's within the realm of possibility.

i get why companies do collabs like this and i dont blame them but i wish these legacy brands would just pull the plug instead hanging on by doing stuff like this.

I'd love to see some of you guys school pictures along the way. I'm sure your parents wanted to give up on you many times along the way based on your "phases". Hot Topic collabs with emo hair and white belts.

But I'm sure many of you were probably always cool.

i like your nurturing approach, but i'm wondering, for how long did you hold on to hope that world industries would eventually make it through its wet willy/flame boy phase?

i'm willing to overlook this phase from habitat just as i would if i were to have a child that wore an insane clown posse shirt, but if habitat starts going on a primitive-esque run of collabs, just as if that kid were to start rocking juggalo face paint, i may have to cut all ties.

HAH. I had a hard time with the Fred Gall thing. I get that some people are clueless as a result of upbringing, lack of support systems, education, etc, but you're telling me Fred Gall didn't encounter a single person that could have been helpful or given him some direction....

And yes, this collaboration is terrible.

it just sucks when a formerly awesome companies image alone is no longer marketable enough to survive on and you have to go after non skaters to make a buck.

Gnar'd. This is the type of stuff that unfortunately in this day and age, is necessary for some companies to pay the bills. I don't like it, but I also want Habitat to be around. This company means a ton to me and has since day 1. Pals Art Hellman and SFB can back that fact. I am willing to overlook a certain level of this shit but I also agree with Heckler's post above...it sucks sometimes to see this stuff from a once mighty company, but if it keeps the lights on and is able to pay dudes like Silas and keep Joe working on great shit, so be it. Habitat is working on a video. If this Bob's Burgers collab helps underwrite them to get that video to us, fucking perfect.

Brennan Conroy gave this interview to Jenkem in 2014 right around the time Habitat rose from the ashes of the Pac Vector debacle. But it's a timely read even now.

It sheds some light into why companies have to do collabs like this. At the time of this interview he mentions that everyone gave Joe Castucci shit for doing the cork longboards, but those cork longboards subsidized some other rad shit they were doing.

Those are all valid points and ones I'd accept had Habitat been doing... well, anything to make this collab worthwhile. Seriously, when the fuck was the last time Habitat did ANYTHING? I get they're "working on a video" but they barely have an Instagram presence anymore (seemingly the bare minimum for a brand to do), and I constantly associate almost all of their riders with other ventures and projects.

For comparison, AWS has been in a similar compromising position for much of Habitat's recent tenure, and they still managed to drop a promo and a few web parts.

Edit: for the record, I like Bob's Burgers and I think there's somewhat of a market for a collab like this, but I don't want to see Habitat doing it. They should be above this.

or the pink floyd collab from 2016? or the twin peaks collab from 2017? i'm reminded of the story of 17-year-old steven ortiz of glendora, ca, who, starting with an old cell phone a friend gave him, used craigslist to trade up 14 times over two years to eventually end up with a porsche boxster. maybe what's going on here is that habitat is using the profits earned from one collab to jump up the collab ladder in order to acquire some IP that is sure to return the brand to its glory days. i'm telling you this big bang theory collab i pitched earlier is a sure-fire winner!

I mean it's a funny show and has what seems to be a pretty big following, but I don't see Bob's Burgers merch all the time. Are non-skater types really gonna buy a BB board/shirt? Star Wars, DBZ, Rick and Morty, Simpsons, and collabs like that seem to have a target audience. This doesn't seem to have the same draw.

What the fuck do I know I haven't bought Habitat anything since Wenning was on.

Lets not forget that the Twin Peaks loot helped get Habitat out of Official and back to OHIO. We shall see if the Bob's burgers fans are as passionate as the Twin Peaks and the Charley Harper fans. The fact that Castrucci has been able to hold the core nucleus of the Habitat team together is miracle in itself.
