We all like a good Shaun White debate, as the comments in this recent post show. I guess the bottom line is, when someone is ridiculously talented (and famous) people will always be fascinated.

This is an old-ish video which we just found from before his Olympic victory, in which Shaun is interviewed by legendary US TV host David Letterman. In it he talks about the terrifying stack he took at the X-Games whilst attempting the new double McTwist 1260, and shows off the scar.

Want to know what he was thinking when he hit his head on the side of the pipe so hard his helmet flew off? Check this out, and feel free to post yet more comments on how much of a sick/sell-out/genuine/big-headed ambassador he is below...
