Yeah Right!

  • Yeah Right!
  • Rick Howard, Eric Koston, Mike Carroll
  • Directed by Ty Evans, Spike Jonze

Formerly only available in skate shops, Yeah Right! is a skateboard film co-directed by Spike Jonze. Anyone could have filmed the gnarly street scenes, but only the twisted imagination of Jonze could have come up with Yeah Right!'s many cool touches. In itself, a super slo-mo close-up of a double kick flip is a sight to see, but watching a fifty-foot ollie across a street should get you scratching your head. In one stunning segment, the special-effects weirdness makes it look like one rider is tearing up the asphalt on an invisible skateboard.
