Skateboarding is a (sex) crime

Is that really a non-event? Or, How to jump on a bandwagon!
Supreme, Lady Gaga, Skateboard
Lady Gaga in skateboard websites:
just a regular girl in a white tee shirt?

Too Rude?
Supreme, Lady Gaga, Skateboard
Last week, pictures of Lady Gaga promoting Supreme Skate Shop appeared on the internet. The lady whos tries too hard with a skateboard was shot by Terry Richardson for an upcoming issue of the French fashion mag Purple. The pictures quickly spread all over the web like wild fire showing that, once again, Supreme has an excellent PR and wonderful ideas. The New York based skate brand got all the skate blogs in their pocket and virtually all skate web-site covering the event for free. I did not relay the information as I thought it was a non-event.

Until I discovered that there were two sets of picture. One set made it to virtually all skate related web sites; the other set made it to general public websites. When I saw the original pictures I just saw a girl in a not –so-wet tee-shirt, big deal right? Well, most general public websites got so offended that they simply obfuscated the picture by covering some part of it with big red star reading "Too Rude!".

So I looked again at the picture and could see nothing wrong but a plain white tee shirt on a girl. Do you see something that I don’t? Let me know…


I skate therefore I am: skateboard pools, pipes, parks, bowls and vert, daily skateboarding news...
