Merc-A45-vs-skateboarder

Remember that skateboarder who set off the speed cameras down Kloofneck? Bring Back Choirboy (yeah weird name), went and got hold of Decio Lourenco, and tasked him to skate down a Cape Town pass with a brand new Mercedes A45 AMG.

Here is the description:

“Inspired by seeing local skaterboarder Decio Lourenco blasting down the steep and gnarly Kloofneck road in Cape Town South Africa, I thought to myself… Let’s see this guy race a car, but not just any car, a car that sends shivers down your spine as the rev needle hits its peak.
So with some hunting and a bit of begging, we were lucky to get our hands on the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG edition one.

So off to the Franschoek hills we went, shooting wild, fighting weather systems, bombing hills, young film makers dreams and nightmares happening simultaneously.

And here we have it, a film i’m proud to say that was pulled off with all the odds against us, who needs big budgets, who needs gravity, the clouds broke and gave us the perfect storm of man vs machine.

Speed, Control and Elegance

Big Ups to all that made this film happen:
Bring Back Choirboy, Priest, Mercedes-Benz, Darkwing Aerials, Media Film Services, Helloiamrory, Zootee, Ensemble Post, Moby for the track and the whole crew that we couldn’t of done this shoot without.
Hope you enjoyed watching this as much as we did making it…
There will be more!

The Bring Back Choirboy Team”
