HERE'S A LIST TO GET YOU STARTED - WHAT WOULD YOU ADD?

In all honesty, we could probably have included almost any of David Benedek’s Robot Food parts in this list. But after some debate it was decided that this one, from the follow-up to Afterbang.

This part again showcases many of what were becoming the Robot Food crew’s hallmarks. There’s the cheesy 80s soundtrack (Billy Idol this time), the mini-shred and euro-carve shots (at 0.25) and a healthy refusal to take themselves too seriously (the piss-take of super-wide gangster stances that were popular at the time at 3.09).

But between all of that David Benedek hits kicker after enormous kicker, and throws down super-corked todeo-style spins that (even to eyes used to watching double and triple corks) still look like total head-fucks to this day. You can imagine what people thought at the time.

Oh, and this part also includes the famous double-shifty BS180 – still possibly the greatest trick ever seen at the Air & Style…
