Vans Releases Video Featuring Skateboarding Wookiee To Promote New Product Line

Posted by Dustin on May 5, 2014 at 06:43 PM CST

As reported earlier, we knew Vans was working on a promo video featuring a skateboarding wookiee to promote their reentry announce Star Wars product line. They released their video on May the 4th, and here it is below in all it's glory! There's just something magical about a wookiee doing a frontside smith grind. Just be sure not to upset him. Never upset a wookiee!

To introduce the special edition Vans x Star Wars collection (shoes and apparel) launching June 2014, we went to the Vans Off the Wall Skatepark in Huntington Beach, CA to film a skate contest set in 1980. After legendary skateboarder Christian Hosoi finishes his run, a rookie wookiee (played by another legend — Steve Caballero) rips the bowl and receives mixed scores from the judges. Tony Alva, Jeff Grosso and Vans surf team riders Leila Hurst and Alex Knost can be seen cheering in the crowd alongside Stormtroopers, Jawas and Chewbacca.
