Here’s the progression of my thoughts when I first saw this video of Hä Wie using a golden wheel barrow to do skateboard tricks on the street. I thought it was so dumb. So, so stupid. And then I started giggling. And then I started laughing. And then I started wondering, wait, is this any less ridiculous than skateboarding?
Did this most ridiculous thing — and it is beyond ridiculous to the point of absurd — become a commentary on skateboarding culture? Have I lost it? I must have lost it.
I like skateboarding, skateboarding culture, wheel barrows and wheel barrow culture, for the record.
