Pierre Andre/Crazy Etnies Ad
« on: January 10, 2021, 05:07:25 PM »
there's an etnies celebrating 35 years ad on the top of thrasher for me right now with this pierre andre dude in the craziest of positions. i found the full photo, but what the fuck is he doing - is it a really savage one foot back 3? weird photo to pick for an ad in 2021. hell of a position...

edit: i always thought etnies was based around natas, why not use a photo of him?

I hate this guy because he denied koston es ownership and Reynolds emerica ownership, canít get behind anything he or his companies do. Then again koston in Nike is tight but I think Reynolds missed an Adidas contract by stating loyal to emerica.

Definitely not a front foot impossible.

Maybe a stationary regular impossible of some kind. I dunno, freestyle was fucking weird.

Reynolds wanted vans and he got vans, youíre out of Touch If you think any company in skating would not be grovelling to sign Reynolds, not to mention he has mentioned many times the half cab is his favourite shoe and made a few vans esq shoes at Emerica.

Do you have any reasoning behind your adidas theory?

Heard from Euro tm Adidas wanted him after stay gold but he said no. And being corporate as adidas, if you say no once is no forever no matter how legendary you are.

That was his "signature trick".
It was an ollie with the back foot kicked back.
His board graphic actually was a stick figure doing the trick!

yeah, i think you nailed it.

i didn't google hard/at all except for finding the full image - so i didn't even know what his stance was. i just watched 5 minutes of him skating to see if he was gonna do the trick. my capacity for watching freestyle has just been expended, but i did at least glean that he skates regular. so i guess it's a twisted ollie flicking the back foot off and going for a shoe whacker...

i was really hoping he was goofy and was doing the shit out of a back 3 haha. did freestyle guys ever do 360 ollies?

Maybe they exchange happened but thatís 100% not how big corporations work. If they think that you can make them money, they will keep the door open for you as long as they feel youíll make them money.

Pretty sick that etnies is running an ad of the owner wear vision streetwear shoes and sweat pants. It's like hey were etnies, we're still here. Nobody wears our shoes. Not our riders, not even our owner, but hey were here.

Honestly, you have a point there. If you believe in your brand, wouldn't you support it too? It's like owning a board company but not skating it yourself (probably riding an anti hero deck instead). But wonder what's with the vision gear and not the ones he owns.

that pic is 35 years old, that's the point. Etnies did not do clothes at the time....
I remember trying those one-footed ollies of his on my street deck. Pierre-Andre was the first French pro I ever heard of. Dude came to California to sleep in a van, place just behind Rodney in freestyle contests and build a footwear brand that's still around decades later. He got my respect for sure.
Edit: just remembered why I liked him....I did this contest at Trocadero (Paris) when I was 12 and me and Pierre-Andre collided on the flat rail. And he apologized! I always thought a well-known pro apologizing to a kid was rad.

@OldieButFrenchie  I was only kidding, but at the same time is there no iconic photos of Pierre Andre doing his signature one footed ollies in Etnies that would be more appropriate as an ad for the company? Either way, that's nice that he apologized to you. I find manners to be important.

I always thought it was sick that in one of those On Videos theres a segment on this emerica tour and Marc Johnson is in it skating in nike cortez lol

yeah, even koston had pics of him with a crossed out nike logo on his shirt, but still got on while he was hot and got a pro model shoe right away.
