First off, that was one of the best song pairings in forever, you pre-Saturday morning cartoon kids can fuck right off.  As for the skating, I was expecting heat but not THAT much.  Ridiculous tech.  Impeccable flick.  Hard tricks down monstrous gaps.  SOTY and it’s not a contest.  No one else has killed it this hard all year long and that’s that.

Macba tricks are just mind-blowing, they're a steep forward on anything that's been done so far in the plaza.

Overall it's an amazing part, he should be on the shortlist nominees of the SOTY.

I just looked at their current team. It's one of the oddest teams out there or maybe I am just not a Crail fan like I used to. Dilo on Adidas made way more sense. He almost like sticks out on the Lakai team.

People can keep waxing poetics on how hr fits better on Adidas fact is Adidas did him dirty, plus his insta footy with lakais are so amazing.

At this point wit so many good skaters dropping parts all year, Thrasher just needs to have a king of Macba style contest to determine this SOTY shit. They all deserve it!

Dilo's hucking doesn't have that numbing effect others do, the flick and catch on the fs flip @4:05 was tasty.

Oof, Ali’s small part in Extremely Sorry just got replaced with this for my association when I hear this song. Amazing shit honestly.

I think we all know it's a variation of the Pink Panther theme haha, what do we have to identify the song's origins before our criticisms are made valid? You guys who enjoy the song are either doing so strictly for the sake of being contrarian, or you're huge Inspector Clouseau fans. I mean hey, the song doesn't match the skating in my opinion. Might be good for a homie cam evening slappy session YouTube vid or something.

Also:
Is there some kind of joke with Red Tiger and Pink Panther? If there is I don't get it..

Anyway, my inner Heckler is coming out. Whatever, it's all good, just watch it on mute from now on I guess.

That was fucked up! So many stand out tricks…   :o Adidas blew it hard on Dilo. He’s a powerhouse thats been on a tear for a while and seems like a genuinely nice guy.
I would fuckin’ love to see him get SOTY (but I unfortunately think that’s unlikely)

Yooooo. Who's going to leak the write-up/reprimand the Adidas TM is about to get?
I disagree they paid him next to nothing, gave him free shoes and bought him a few plane tickets in return they received more video coverage and photos/ads in mags than almost everyone on their official team excluding Suciu of course. Talk about ROI!!!!

People acting like we hate the song because we don’t realize it’s from the Pink Panther, but that exact association plays into why it’s such an awful choice.

Imagine a part called “Objective  Unfeasible” edited to the Mission Impossible theme - just corny lol.

crazy to think that the last two spots have only been ollied prior to this, by dudes who ollie some really shit at that (sandoval, townley). sandoval ollied that block set as his ender too. shows how john dilo is the absolute definition of “tech gnar”.

i bet he has something else coming before the year ends just like suciu. he had a photo in the new mag on a spot he skates in this part doing a better trick than the one in this part.

He always has a smile on his face so he's gotta be making 6 figures

The filming was fucking perfect! It's really striking to see really incredible clips paired with excellent filming, especially lately. No gimmicky nonsense distracted from Dilo's skating, letting tricks like that gorgeous switch 360 flip at 1:53 just breathe. Love it.

Damn, there were some insane tricks just in the first two minutes alone. Nollie backside flip over a bench, nose manny nollie up to nose manny flip out, and tailslide flip out to nose manny are all tricks I've done in Skate 3 with the mindset that it would be sick to see someone do them in real life one day.


But I'll hop on the song debate and say that they really got him fucked up on that song. I was waiting for it to end and for another song to kick in for the first four minutes of that part.

he's one the of the best in the biz right now, would be stoked to see him take SOTY this year if it doesn't go to Mark

his ability to nollie up things out of a nose manual is absolutely mind-blowing. being able to get that much pop going straight at an obstacle from nose manny position just does not even remotely make sense.

Agreed

Would love to see a different angle of that switch tre.  Caught it way way up. One of the best I’ve seen for sure.

Heavy heavy part

Agree on music... What the hell ha

Its like a song you illegally downloaded in 2000 when you were a kid and you first discovered music pirating.  Tragic choice for a present day part.  Almost seems ironic its so lazy and unimaginative, but not quite.

John and his skating are very sick though.  He fits on Lakai

how bummed would you be to bust your ass on a banger only to have it filmed like this?

anyway, had no idea this dude was this good. thought the song would change after the first thirty seconds or so, learned to tune it out

Honestly, i really like the way this was filmed; really drives it in how crazy it is to maintain balance. Go ahead and crucify me.

although filled with bangers, the nosemanual pop to nosemanual nollie flip was really the standout trick for me. dilo has been so productive and every part is crazy like this one

Its my birthday tommorow, and my plan is to drink a few beers and then DM Lakai to put John on for at least 20 times.

This part was insane. Now think about the fact that he put out 5 parts this year.
Hope he gets SOTY. He's really raising the bar for tech.

Seems like it's between him and Mark yet neither got a cover this year. Pretty wild.

The fact that so many zoomers here are "bummed on the song" is fucking hilarious to me. I thought it was a great choice, in fact I loved it.

That nose manual to nollie down the set was my favourite, the fact that he clipped it made it even better imo.

I couldnt finish watching that part because the song started to bother me more and more. Had to rewatch it muted.
