BACKSIDE STRAIGHT JACKET HEAD PLANT REVERT.
I distinctly remember seeing this when I rented the painstakingly long Savanah Slamma VHS tape from the video store on Wheaton Way. Same place I rented Animal Chin and got immediately hooked for life.
Hands down one of the best contest runs ever, second only to Neil Blender's run where he had a can of spray paint in his pants of which he used to paint a wall mid-run. Honorary mention should also go to Dan Drehobl's oddly-similar (perhaps an homage) human crash test dummy run circa '93 in...Philly? (Seen long ago in a 411, #6 or 7.)
They don't make 'em like that anymore.
p.s. If you haven't checked out Grosso's Loveletter's to Skateboarding, you're missing out.
