Spike Jonze reworks skate footage for music video

What with all the drooling over the trailer for Where the Wild Things Are, consider us to be in a full-on love affair with all things Spike Jonze. As such, let’s spare a moment for this video, a bit Jonze cobbled together from his own archives exclusively for the British group U.N.K.L.E., currently making the Internet rounds but brought to my attention by The Full Clip earlier this week.

The segment is a welcome re-visit of Jonze’s work on Fully Flared (which you can watch in its entirety here), one of only a few truly seminal skate videos from recent years. No CGI was used in any of these segments, just pyrotechnics timed to tight, nerve-rattling perfection. The footage may not be new, but the edit certainly is — a perfect marriage of sound and visual. Sit back, relax and enjoy. Available in HD quality at DailyMotion.
