Happened to me after a hilarious comment. Thankfully he unblocked me or I'd be holding an insanely petty grudge to this very day.

I feel like this should just be the standard as most of the posts we gossip about get deleted anyways.

Like all of Tedís posts, itís a video of him talking. This one is 60 seconds of him criticizing Pontus for fueling some of Polarís art direction and music selection with his nostalgia and love for skateboarding from his youth.

Itís true but I guess itís up to the viewer to decide if they even see a problem with that.

How can that be a problem at all? I want to understand, but not bad enough to watch another of Ted's IG story drible.

Edit* clicked that link above against by better judgment. Got it now.

I can't really think of any big companies nowadays that isn't milking nostalgia to some degree but I guess thats skateboarding in a nutshell.

Pontus of Mad Circle fame? He's still around huh? Wat a magical career...

A friend of mine owed me a deck back in the day tried to be slick and bought me a Pontus board right when MC was done it was on sale cheap.
Traded it for a used Zoo York and Shortys board because I didn't like his name and still don't...

I don't think his point is that a company is milking nostalgia. Plenty of them do that. The issue is when you don't acknowledge that it's from the past and try to pass it off as an original idea.

Pontus is/was a very divisive personality in the 90s and pissed a lot of people off. I can guarantee Ted is one of those people - SO many skaters from that time despise his success with Polar because they didn't like him around the Mad Circle era. You can guarantee this is personal shit because what he says makes no sense/could be applied to every brand ever

I think I care more about Strongest of the Strange and In Search of the Miraculous, than any graphic.  Those movies rule.

What idea is there to oppose? You didn't provide any ideas. You just said a series of dumb things.

He is not criticizing Pontus' use of nostalgia in general but citing actual characters that are rip offs of Gonz and Blender characters from the 80s/90s.

Social media only brings out the worst in people. It's a totally unnatural way for human beings to communicate. Hopefully one day we'll look back on the facebook/instagram era with great shame and remorse for what we let it do to society.

Straight up agree dude
Rest in peace Dick Dale.

O ya I get that but I also don't think Pontus constantly believes or projects the notion that everything he does is an original idea. He may come off as a salty sometimes but so does Ted (despite his constant reassurance to his audience) so idk man. We can also be cyclically discussing how the Gonz and Blender were emulating the early modernist painters in their respective artistic practices.
