Donut duty (thrasher 1995)
There was a time when if you wanted to watch a certain skate video that you didn’t physically own then had to get a lift from your mum to grab it or watch it at a mates house. No sitting on your arse and clicking the video onto your screen. You had to go get it up and go get a copy or watch it as a group with your mates which rarely happens these days. Donut Duty was the first skate video I ever saw, shortly after that it was Trilogy. Donut Duty was out in 1995 so I would have most likely watched it when I was fifteen. I remember the skaters pretending to be cops and together with some good hip hop it had its fair share of punk music.
Skateboarding was still pretty underground which made it even more appealing as a teenager. This video definitely fueled some of my early skateboarding and also gave us a few ideas on making some stupid skits to put in our own skate videos. Anyway you don’t need a lift to your mates house to watch this. Thanks to technology you can watch it here.
