The Berrics: Tony Hawk – Who You Callin’ A Sellout?

1885

Skatebooarding. Sponsorship. Any skateboarders wants to be sponsored. If there’s anyone who’s an expert on corporate sponsorship, it’s Tony Hawk. As skateboarding’s beloved poster child since the 80s, Tony has starred in tons of movies and TV shows, put out the most successful skate video games of all time, and brought more public awareness to skateboarding than any other person who’s touched a board. He’s endorsed McDonalds, Club Med, Bagel Bites, Sony, Kohls, and countless other mega companies. Needless to say, among pioneering a million other things in skateboarding, Tony Hawk can be attributed with bridging the gap between skating and the mainstream. And while there’s a constant desire to “keep it core” in our culture, the Birdman breaks down the concept of “selling out” and how corporations and skateboarders can co-exist.

Now hit play and listen to the legend.

“I got to do Living the dream. Living the dream, I’m not talking about financial success, I’m talking about loving what you do.”

“Coz you can’t listen to haters that’s my best advise to everyone. If I’d listen to the haters, I would have quit a long time ago, I would have quit when I was eleven years old.”

– Tony Hawk
