Snoop Dogg meets flatland....
Last Friday, Ahmed, Toño, and I did an Adidas commercial featuring Snoop Dogg. The set was up in the Malibu hills near the Zuma Beach riding spot. They were trying to capture the essence of a Southern Cali backyard beach house party.
We arrived on set, in full Nike gear, around 12:30pm! Hahaha!
Toño had his "cellie walkie talkie" to Peru in full effect!
Ahmed -"Where's the session at??"
Getting ready for a hilarious day...I told them on the phone we wear Nike! They had the wardrobe department in full effect, ready to get us draped in Adidas gear!
The house in the hills was tight. They had a pretty sick mini-ramp at the house and we sessioned the flat bottom.
They made this in-ground trampoline into a foam pit. A couple street riders jumped into it.
After the ramp and foam pit session, Snoop arrived. Here he is, rolling up on Ahmed for the pool scene....
Toño in a good position. He ain't mad...
Now you know them flatlanders are the sheezy fo reezy!
Snoop doin' what he do best!
At night, outside Snoop's trailer...We were all set up to get a proper portrait shot with Snoop and the flatland riders, but then the assistant director told us he needed us for the night party scene.
Maaaaaaaannnn, always somethin'!!!!!
Snoop ended up coming back out during the night party scene and started freestylin' for us. It was pretty tight. I wanted to take more photos, but their cameras were rolling and we needed to act like we were at a party.
Here's what Toño had to say about the event.
FM: Did you ever think you would be on set with Snoop Dogg?
Toño: No never in my life hahaha!
FM: Do people listen to Snoop in Peru?
Toño: Yes, they do! A lot of people...
FM :Oh yeah? That's tight. How were the girls on set?
Toño: I only like 2 girls there. Hahaha! The girl of afro hair and the other girl with the white dress.
FM: Do you wear Adidas?
Toño: I did but now no...
FM: Did you jump in that foam pit?
Toño: Yesssss...... it was super cool, but not with my bike just me alone jajajaja!
FM: Sounds like you had fun!
FM: How has your visit to America been so far?
Toño: Really good ... the people are very amazing, the riders too!... it so cool. I like LA!
FM: Those girls were pretty hot!
Toño: Yeeeahhh! I like that too!.. and want one hahahaha!
