What’s this? A Shaun White video with no questionable animal-related attire, no double-fist claims and no odd facial hair? What is the world coming to! The best we get here are shots of his private Leer Jet which is all well and good, but no way near as interesting as say, his Game of Thrones look in the last video. C’mon Shaun, we’ve been counting on you these days to keep us amused and to keep things interesting.
In all seriousness though, it’s actually pretty rad to see a Shaun White edit that for the most part, is focused on his riding for once. Minimal bullshit, no cheesy commentary – just a few massive pipe hits and god forbid, some of the biggest, cleanest double cork 1080′s and 1260′s we’ve seen in a while. The Toots’ and McMorris’ of this world better get their magnifying glasses and calculators out because Shaun clearly has his eyes on that Olympic slopestyle gold in addition to pipe gold in his seemingly never-ending quest for medals. And judging by his slopestyle performance at the European X-Games earlier this year, he’s got a very real chance at that Olympic double.
On another note, has anyone else clocked that the White Collection ‘W’ looks awfully like another W logo a little closer to home?
