I watched it to the end with an open mind and now have to post hate to justify my wasted time.  Cringey at best.
Seems like something Ty filmed for himself to masturbate to.

This. Ty killed skate videos. Go work for Nat Geo Ty

Yeah Right sucked too. I think younger generations remember it fondly out of nostalgia, but that's the video where the Crail camp started to suck. Overproduced claptrap.

Thank you. I remember watching Yeah Right for the first time with a couple friends... they loved it, and I came away from the viewing much less a fan of Girl etc than I was before watching it.

I can't believe the same dude who made Yeah Right is making this shit now.

I loved Yeah Right when it came out. I was 13 at the time. I'm gonna watch this Flat Earth thing even if it's gonna suck. Some of these guys in there are too good to not watch them skate.

apples to oranges...certainly you should be able to tell that adding green screened ramps in the midst of VX footage is far less ostentatious and grandiose than this bullshit

The skits in Yeah Right were a bit long. I didn't watch them more than a few times - cool once or twice, but nothing to keep going back to b/c once you get it, you get it. Plus the Skatrix one was bad, I read that it was difficult to make but still. The skating and music more than made up for it though.

I feel like Ty's shit became a bit stale around Fully Flared. I was hella psyched on it when it came out, though. I just could not believe the skating.

I agree with Adam ^ that Yeah Right wasn't perfect. I still love it and still get emotional when the credits start rolling.

Fuck me. It's like something you'd see in a HD TV showroom on a loop. Fuck Canale? Fuck Ty!
Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.

Seriously. BA, Gino, and MJs parts alone make it an epic video. One of the great video skits of all time with owen wilson. The only weak sections are Jereme Rogers and the Skatrix.
I thought it wasnt just him solo, shouldve stuck with my og thought.

is there like a smoking gun interview where we hear about what happened with Ty? like why he went this direction?

I only watched the first 45 seconds or so. Up until this point, I was rooting for Foy for SOTY but if he's taking part in this corny ass wank fest fuck it, give it to Louis or Tiago. That shit was entirely lame. Quit smelling your own farts Ty

A 4 minute trailer for a Skate Video? The best skate videos go for barely 30 minutes.

I think he got banged up so itís hard for him to follow on a filmer board.   I think he also words for Brain Farm that specializes in these types of videos.  Heís just trying to push skateboarding cinematography, but unfortunately for him, no one wants the kind of innovation heís providing.

Ty Evans doesn't do what Ty Evans does for Ty Evans. Ty Evans does what Ty Evans does because Ty Evans is... Ty Evans

Not a single full non-flatground trick in this video. Also, Antonio Durao doesn't have a part in this but he has the last trick in the trailer? Ty....

However, fuck all of this "Yeah Right" wasn't good talk. If Eric Koston skated to a better song for his part (love Frank Black -- horrible fit for his part), it would be very close to a perfect video.
Confidently marching in the wrong direction.

I don't get it... Who is this suppose to cater to?? People who don't skate?

Not necessarily people who don't skate, but people who don't see the difference between skating and rollerblading, bmx, etc.

the closeup of the water drop

This was very telling for the kind of tone/theme that Ty wants to represent, and it's awful.

This video will be perfect for playing in the background of some xtreme shop where they sell all kinds of xtreme.

Normally I can use pretty much any skate content to distract me from work, but I gave this an honest attempt and couldn't even make it to the 1:00 mark.
Going into to business with Vallely is the skateboarding equivalent of starting a land war in Asia, just don't.
