In 1966 the national film board of Canada (NFB) put out a documentary film about skateboarding directed by Claude Jutra called The Devil's Toy, Jutra thought it was ridiculous that the skaters were being hassled by cops (even then). Now the NFB has had 12 people make their own films based on the original, my friend @machotaildrop made one and I'm in it. Go to www.thedevilstoy.com to see them all, the site is a little tricky to navigate but there's some good ones In there. ✌️👹

I've been stuck on this splash screen for 15 minutes trying to find the videos. Am I missing something here? Excited to see this! @mccranker
@tsedo i don't think the site works on mobile yet. I tried to watch it with Firefox but it didn't work, it worked on google chrome.
Thanks for the tip. I'm on Firefox. I'll switch to chrome! Even more rad is that I can see the road that they filmed the original on from my office. I should go get swervey on it this afternoon. @mccranker
Rick, you like devil shit, right? and vegan shit, right? We don't have the shit part, but we have vegan pizzas that are evil as fuck. We're also based here in Vancouver. Come. Try.
2004 I wanted the next éS video to be based on the Devils Toy. I gotta check this out! Cool.
